To better illustrate the features of the ATI software, below are screenshots showing the various control panel options. Most are self-explanitory. This page shows the OS X software. Due to the number of images, I've created a separate page showing the OS 9 control software. (Since the TV/Video out options/controls are the same in both OS versions, I didn't repeat the TV/Video options/screens on the OS 9 page.)
OS X Radeon Displays CP
Video Out/Mac2TV Controls:
(OS X shown, OS 9 has identical controls)
(Dot Crawl correction helps minimize this effect sometimes seen on thin lines with interlaced displays of TVs.)
(to save space, image was clipped to show only TV resolutions/mirror option)
Display Modes: (Availablility will depend on your monitor's ability to support these resolutions).
The image below shows the list of resolutions with the Radeon 8500 Mac Edition when connected to a Sony FW900 (widescreen) CRT monitor. (Later driver udpates may offer more/different resolutions and the selection will vary depending on the monitor used.)
Note: ATI's 8500 Mac Edition Specs page notes the maximum DVI LCD resolution supported is 1600x1200.
