TT & Matrix M128

Postby Arne » Thu Apr 03, 2014 3:40 pm

Hi folks,

recently got a TT with a Matrix M128 installed. Does that make any sense? AFAIK the M128 does 1280x960 ECL. And every TT can do this. Or does the M128 have any "hidden features" like a VGA mode?

The Matrix ECL Graphiccards are/were available from 110Mhz to 160Mhz …

… perhaps that is the reason ?

Awesome !!!!

Used the 1.3 drivers, as 2.x seems not to support the M128, or at least I couldn't get it to work.

But absolutely fantastic, my ECL to VGA adapter works with it too. Again, as always, the resolution of 1280x960 doesn't work too great with LCD's given the stretching done, but it's actually much better than the TT's output of 1280x960.

I've tried these drivers but for some reason I can't get my M128 to work.

Normally I understand the german manual but I just can't get it. The TT starts shows me in what resolution it should start on the normal
VGA port and then seems to lock up. I don't know what I do wrong, so anybody with a running M128 that can help me ???

Driver -> http://www.holleman.demon.nl/bin/m128.zip

The Version 1.3 is the right one I think. May be the Version 1.0, the other ones are wrong and for CXX Graphiccards with a Intel GPU ...

Well beter late then never I would say, but I tried it again after almost a year. And IT'S ALIVE, the card works in a TT now. Happy to see that !!!
Only thing is that it is not black and white, but more blue-isch/minty and blck. Like one of the colors it not working to make white. But okay, I've a picture and thats more then last time :)
