Aren't they supposed to provide 60 as the primary detailed timings ? But
I agree with Alex here, we need ways to use different refresh rates. How
many CRTs have you seen that just don't work properly when using the max
rate they advertise in their EDID as well ?
I need what we need here is mode "names" as Jon proposed, to be able to
expose things that we don't deal with in the API, and a way to know the
"native" mode of the display if any.
