Thanks for the article! I'm short on time to tweak
at the moment, but want to make a comment on
the brief reading I've done so far. You mention
Plug up your LCD. Where possible, use the DVI-D
(i.e. The digital, not analogue VGA) connector.
IMO this should be clarified. Some LCD monitors, such
as my Philips 150B4, are not digital monitors. They come
with a regular VGA plug. However, here in China, they
also will either come with, or the store may give you,
a VGA to DVI adapter plug. This is not recommended,
and I'm not going into the technical reasons at this point,
but suffice it to say that it makes no difference for this
monitor in Linux; and in Windoze the quality suffers by
using this adapter. When I discussed this with the local
Philips distributor store (where I buy all my parts), they
told me it should give you a performance increase while
playing DVDs -- which it doesn't, either.
What is your experience, or knowledge, about this?
(I would have emailed or PMed you but you haven't
authorized either of those. If you'd like to open up
personal dialog please email me.)
