I checked the manual for his display, and it will likely have the same
"issue" mine had and which I detailed above.  The key words to look
for are "DVI not intended for PC display" or words to that effect (see
page 7 of his manual on the samsung site).

It's not doing anything to actively discourage the signal, just it
applies overscan correction and will only work with HDTV modelines,
not "raw" modelines.
