More VGA adapter woes

| No TrackBacks

Well, the mystery deepens. Using a known good diode on my home brew VGA adapter didn't help the matter at all. However, I managed to identify the spare VGA adapters I had at the office when I found an unopened one, and it was the Griffin gView (discontinued). But, that adapter didn't work either!

In every case, OS X reported no display attached, and gave resolution choices of 1024x768 and 832x624 only. I tried multiple gView adapters, various settings, two different G4's. No luck at all, unless I'd actually connect a display to the adapter and reboot, then it would work. Obviously OS X is detecting displays differently from how OS 9 did, I've emailed Griffin support in the hope of getting some answers to this one. Stay tuned...
