  1. Thank you!

    That works great! I can get 1920x1200@60 and a DPI 93x95. It looks good.

    Obviously I still cannot see the screen if I go into console mode, or even during boot (thought I can if I use the VGA...

    I think this might be related to the issue, http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/display/edid_over.mspx
    Windows users presumably install some driver which contains the EDID and modelines.

    Ok, I've just used switchxres on the Mac to capture the EDID... not really sure what to think of it though.

    No, it's definitely not that: I can leave it forever at the grub screen and just never see anything. Further more I cannot see the consoles (TTY1,2,3...), the screen blanks when I go to those.

    Ok I've tried that, and also "UseEDID" "false" to force the mode to be used, but it isn't apparently valid so no luck.

    I think the problem is deeper than just the nvidia driver: I'm not getting...
