Max resolution w/ 1900xt & 7300gt
on Mar 23, 2008 at 1:33:18 pm

I have 1900xt & 7300gt installed in older mac pro.
If I attach monitors to both adapters Motion reports 2364x2364 as max resolution.
If I unplug monitors from 7300gt, I'll get 4096x4096 for max rez.

Any workarounds for not having to unplug monitors each time I want to use Motion?

I think Motion takes in consideration the graphics card that is connected to the main display. The main display is the one where the menubar appears. You can set the main display via the System Preferences. Have you tried making sure that the main display is connected to the X1900?

Hope this helps,

Conclusion: primary screen does affect maxRez, but not alone.
You can't use 7300gt at all, if you want to have 1900xt's maxRez...
