Please help - Change to X2VGA !!

Post by Craxx » Wed Nov 24, 2004 9:59 pm

Hy Experts,

please help:

I´m running Gentoox 3.1c fine with normal composite Cable. Now i bought X2VGA Adapter. I use XBMC for dashboard. All is running fine with 480p in NTSC Mode. When i starting Gentoox i get a black screen, my fan get loud and ... the box shut down???
After that i put my normal composite Cable starting Gentoox. All is fine. I run XBVSET and take X2VGA with 480p and 780x480. After reboot i put my X2VGA on and starting Gentoox from XBMC after that i get same ERRORbehavior like before.

So please, how can i change to X2VGA? What is the right procedur??

When i boot with LOader as a starting CD it works!!!
Is it possible starting from XBMC?
What is about the screen, is it possible with 480p to get 800x600?
Because my Screen is on my Beamer not "normal".

THX a lot and best regards

I think the dash has to be running in 480i for the gentoox bootloader to run.
