The only other thing that can happen is that the moniutor won't accept it.
Here are the threads and link to the patch (which also contains a link to the Custom Resolution Utility):

I would really appreciate if you could do this. I'm trying to figure out if this setup would work with my Studio 15 and there's a good chance that it will but no one has confirmed it. It would help out a lot of people wanting to connect their laptops without shelling out the extra money for a 2B Catleap of a multi-input version of this monitor.
Thanks!

I'll be happy to try this for you. I have a passive HDMI -> DVI cable that works fine to my Dell 24". It will take me a few hours since I'm out and about right now.

I'll kick myself if it works since I already ordered a mini DP -> Dual link DVI active converter that cost $70 for my Dell XPS. At least I'll be able to run dual monitors, in addition to the laptop screen, off the XPS with the new adapter so it won't be a complete waste of $$.

Hey thanks for testing it out. Any luck so far?

Has anyone tried getting 3 of these in portrait debezelled?
post #1676 of 3508
man ta_planet is saying the flickering is normal. How can it be normal when it only started to do it 5 days after using it.

Shouldn't it have been flickering right when I opened the box?
Quote:
this flickering issues from the sleeping mode.

If the power supply problem, same flickering should be happened when you turn off the monitor and turn on the monitor.

but your flicking issue will be seen only the wake from the sleep mode.


As I explained before,
by-pass model get the signal from the VGA card (graphic card).
(I did not mean VGA port, I mean graphic card)
In sleep mode, all hardware (CPU, RAM, main board and graphic card and power supply) is sleeping.
From the wake of sleeping mode, all hardware wake response time should be almost same.

but the flickering issue is from slow response of graphic card.
That's it.
That is by-pass monitor's problem.

My answer is based on Achieva chief tech manager.
- ta_planet

i am very very disappointed right now with his run around explanation of "this is normal" I know it is not because no one else is reporting it and why is it only happening after 5 days of usage and not right out of the box..

Thanks for the welcome biggrin.gif

Ah that sucks, i'm planning to do 3x Portrait and was hoping to do it with the Achieva Shimians since it was cheaper then the catleap. I think i might go with the catleap then since i saw callsigns vega's thread and i think there's a guide to debezel. But basically all these korean panels are the same right?

The first one took about 3 days and when I ordered another recently it took 4 days. Both from TA_Planet.
