1 Hello,
2
3 We'll I've got a new samsung monitor 2333HD-1
4 that is verified 1920x1080.
5
6 Finally, I got it working on a dvi-d-2-dvi-d video cable
7 with no problems...(minimal xorg.conf) and ati-drivers.

10 OK, so I switch to a DVI-D<on video card> to HDMI
11 on the monitor and it comes in, but the bottom and sides
12 are missing.
13
14 OK so I found this thread that I'm guessing is
15 on the mark:

18 But, I'm a little bit 'chicken' with xorg.conf, not
19 to mention messing with the dot clock et al.......

22 Anyone want to venture a guess about the display settings,
23 suggested in the link? that I should use? A better way?
24
25 Here's the (example) math I use to use:
26 # DisplaySize 426 266
27 # width = (1680pix / 100pix/in) x [25.4mm/in] = 427 --> 426
28 # hieght = (1050pix / 100pix/in) x [25.4mm/in] = 267 --> 266
