Hi Hong,

I have attached a couple of logs and my xorg.conf.

Xorg.1280x768.log for 1280x768
Xorg.1024x768.log for 1024x768
Xorg.720x576.log for 720x576
Xorg.720x576_NoDDC.log for 720x576  with option "NoDDC" "true" in xorg.conf

I started X vias startx under the root user.  X was not run prior to
capturing the first log, since I disabled GDM and usplash.  I did NOT
reboot between subsequent startx invocations.

In all cases the screen was black.  Over the VGA cable, I can see an
xterm and the black and white stipple.

My screen is a Pioneer PDP-427XDA Plasma connected via a short 1.5m HDMI cable.

The Pioneer manual lists the following modes for HDMI in a table as follows:
1920 x 1080i @ 50Hz
720 x 576p @ 50Hz
1280 x 720p @ 50Hz
720(1440) x 576i @ 50Hz
1920 x 1080i @ 59.94 Hz/60Hz
720 x 480p @ 59.94 Hz/60Hz
1280 x 720p @ 59.94 Hz/60Hz
720(1440) x 480i 59.94 Hz/60Hz
1920 x 1080p @ 24Hz

Hope that helps,
Mike.
