    Hmm, Have you tried putting your PS1 LCD on your 9700pro ( As a secondary mointor )?

    And is your thrustmaster a pal version?

    In order to get the psone lcd to work you need two video cards. I've done this mod and did the same mistake in trying to use one. It won't work unless you boot up with only the psone lcd but you still get a crappy pic. You need two video cards so you can tweak the settings of one of them for the psone lcd in powerstrip.

    Yep, I first tried with my 9700 Pro, but I'd to do the hot swap thing 2, so therefor I went out and bought a second card, just for the PS1 LCD so I didn't had to hot swap it every time I starded the system. I don't know if there is any mod you can do to make it work with just one card. Maybe the fastes ande easiets way is to get the PS1 to work is to get a second card.

    My PS1 is a PAL and NTCS, I've a switch on the front under the brightness controls. I've tried it with PAL and NCTS and it works fine, I switched to PAL right now and I'd only to adjust the screen down a bit in PowerStrip.

    Cheers

    I didn't have any problems with PowerStrip 3.30 buildt 366 and my Radeon 7000 PCi, the card is without fan, only heatsink. I don't know what other cards that will work without having to build a C-sync stuff.

    Someother at the forum that know what other cards that will work, with or without the C-Sync mod?

    I bought a x300 PCI-E for cheap on eBay. Not going to be using the other PCI-E slot anyhow and didnt want to hog one of the only two PCI slots. Works fine.

    Need for second card is basically because the VGA is on by default, even if it doesnt detect a monitor attached. If anyone knows a good trick to get some sort of detection, I'd love to hear it!

    I found this info on the web

    NEW! [Jan 12/99]: You must add a 220uf capacitor in each of the RGB lines to get an acceptable picture. If you don't, the picture will be too dark and you won't like it!!


    Anyone tried it?


    Cheers

    I have an extremely similar problem with my joytech screen, I'm wondering if I should have paid the extra fiver to get the official screen!

    I've played with powerstrip lots (maybe not enough) and it's rolling every way it can! The colours are all there, but I only have one colour ground running. It has a NTSC/PAL switch, but either way the screen looks just the same!

    I only have one sync cable wired in, could this be related? Please help!

    Rob,


    hey by the way!
