      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • I had no idea any Pivot card might be capable of outputting anything more than 832x624@75Hz in 8biit)16" Color (Fixed Res Mac Monitor Standard) and I don't think what you guys are seeing is real, I'm guessing that's a readout of the way the monitor is (mis)scaling the card's output to full screen and that very strange number reportage is a red herring?   What are the native resolutions of the panels you guys are running?   And you're welcome! Eventually search will turn up links to URLs that actually load. Still figuring out the symptoms to do a report. All my bookmarks to older threads are broken ATM and recovering the URLs from Properties (Firefox/Win10) erratically works with Google. Building a new links network seems to work fine.   edit: still AM fuzzy in PM mode. What resolutions are the Pivot Card versions supposed to output? I'll let you search through the Pivot Q&As if you've not yet done so.
    • But no matter which dip switches I choose on my vga adapter, I always end up with a resolution of 1152x864 like Bolle. Is that due to a lack of radius drivers or a problem with the vga adapter? 
    • yea its just a filter choke. kind of a bad one at that since you already have one just above it. Oh well, wanted to make sure it passed FCC checks regardless. 
    • That sounds like the silver bullet for putting onboard video down hard. @techknight whatcha think about this in terms of the register loading issue that merely pulling the Video ROM might not accomplish?   This is a very specific necro post (I have zero problems with pulling old threads back to the surface, but some seem to?) best made in this context.   If it's better to clean this info up this scattershot research in a new thread:  
    • Thank you so much for digging out that old thread! Will browse/read through it more thoroughly in the next couple of days. From what I have read so far I understand that ar least some radius software is needed in order to leave the 1152x640 resolution and get 640x864 or 864x640. Do you have an idea, where I can get that software and which version I would need for my grayscale radius pivot SE 30?
