… not really a bug but something that i think does not make any sense - so i decided to post it here.
Switching output of Renderer (EX9) to custom resolutions or refresh rates normaly was and should not be a problem since beta9. Until yesterday my my experience was that any resolution you can customize in the display driver or powerstrip shows up in Inspektors pull down menus and can be selected.
But yesterday I was not able to set vvvv to any custom resolution that worked perfectly with the windows desktop. After some time (grrrr) i found out that the difference was, that the first time ever I had standard monitors sending DDC-data (Display Data Channel) connected directly to the graphics card - so the graphics card was receiving DDC from the monitor.
As soon as the graphics card is receiving any DDC from the monitor it seems that you are only able to set the Renderer(EX9) to the resolutions and refresh rates DDC is recommending (proof me if i am wrong). If you cut of Pin12 of the VGA-cable (Pin 12 is used to transmit DDC) you are (after reboot) again able to select any resolution available under windows.When no DDC is received you can select “Default Monitor” in the graphics card driver otherways only “Plug and Play Monitor” or a more specific monitor.
I think, this behaviour does not make any sense at all. Maybe vvvv is only reading these “allowed” graphics card system from the wrong “registry” - instead of reading the under windows possible settings !? In my eyes VVVV should at least offer all settings possible under windows and not only the ones “allowed” by the monitor manufacturer.
