Another possible pitfall is the input used on the display. A
particular display will deinterlace (good, for someone like Phil who
wants the display to handle the job) and overscan (probably not good)
component input, but will do neither for DVI input. Another will only
deinterlace on DVI2 while leaving DVI1's signal untouched. A third
will only permit the native resolution of the display on the VGA input
while restricting all others to a subset.

This may all be explained in the documentation, but maybe not;
experimenting is often the only way to see.
