Hello all. I have a Powermac G4 AGP Graphics 450MHz, 768MB RAM, Tiger. I just bought a Westinghouse 19" Widescreen LCD (LCM-19w4) specifically because it had two inputs (DVI-D, VGA) so I could run my Xbox 360 and my Mac into the same monitor to save space. My Mac has an ATI Rage Pro 128 AGP graphics card, which I believe has one VGA output, and one DVI. I've never seen what an ADC output looks like, but the one on my card is white and fits a DVI-D cable into it, so I just assumed it's DVI. So when I opened my new monitor and ran the VGA output from the Mac to the monitor to test, it worked great and I was able to get a 1440 x 900 resolution. So then, I hooked up my Xbox 360 and it worked fine. When I hooked up my Mac to the DVI-D port, I was only able to get 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 1024 stretched resolutions. Do I need some sort of convertor or driver upgrade or something? Am I using the right cable (DVI-D)? My whole purpose for buying a monitor like this was to use both inputs and I don't want a stretched picture.
