Default Linux Debian / Belkin OmniView PRO3 KVM Poor Resolution Problem

Hello All,

Thanks for viewing my thread. My problem is I have a few Debian machines hooked up to a KVM switch and I cannot get the resolution of any of the Debian boxes to 1920X1080 which is the normal resolution they function at, currently the highest resolution I have gotten the boxes to is 1024x768 on the KVM. The KVM also supports resolution up to 1920x1440. So, I am confused. I tried to reconfigure my xorg.conf file, I added additional resolution modes, etc but nothing has worked.

Currently:
Thor3:/home/tester3# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 1024
VGA connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 304mm x 228mm
1024x768--- 60.0*+ 75.1 75.0 70.1 60.0* 59.9
832x624--- 74.6
800x600--- 72.2 75.0 60.3 59.9 56.2
640x480-- 75.0 72.8 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0 59.9
720x400-- 70.1
640x350-- 70.1

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Thanks a lot!

Probably not picking up the EDID from your monitor. This thread may be of use:

Or just google it.
