I have been reading the posts for NVidia 8600 problems. I see there are quite a few. I recently upgraded to this card and have had difficulty getting my system to speak to my Barco 701s. I had the brilliant idea to try Powerstrip again until I saw the posts. Can anyone tell me the proper settings to input into the custom settings section of the video driver? I am running the HTPC to an HDFury, Extron RGB 201 Rxi (to provide neg sync), then to the Barco.
I also use an HDMI switch before the Fury to run my standard DVD player (which works flawlessly), it's just when I switch to the HTPC that the Extron shows NO SIGNAL.
I have attached a screen shot of the custom resolution dialog which shows what the computer is currently trying to output.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have an Nvidia 8600 + HDFury combi too. I was using port 5 (BG808). Port 5 is supposed to take negative sync only. HOWEVER: for some reason, in the custom timing menu, I had to choose positive sync. On an older PC with an older NVidia card, only negative sync worked.
Maybe NVidia mixed up the signs?
Unfortunately I do not have the exact timings I use available. Normally CVT reduced blank is a good starting point.

Thanks for the replies guys,
Gerbrand, I will try the CVT, the neg sync produced by the Extron box is an absolute, again, it works perfectly every time with a standard DVD player.
Analog, I have tried setting 1024 x 768 res. I used that with my old NVidia 6800GTS. In fact, I have been able to converge the Barco at that resolution. Now, with the new card, I have been able to power up the system 'once' and have a picture. The next time I tried to start everything up (and every time since) there is no picture. It makes me wonder if the computer (video driver) is resetting something incorrectly. When I first got my HDFury, I used it directly without the Extron (didn't have it yet), but the Barco did not want to sync consistently. _________________ I got a new projector...so I had to sell my tiny little 54" tv!
