Hello vykupitel,

I only received the card about a week ago, and I haven't done a lot with it yet, but I'll try and help you anyway.
I used this bios: http://www.voodooalert.de/files/bios/V5/v5pcivers118dvi.zip

Abuot your question: I'm sorry... I haven't any flat monitor right now to test the DVI output correctly.
I thought I could use the Radeon VGA-DVI connector, but the pins are not placed in the same way as of the Radeon, so I haven't tested it yet.
Further more, I am using Amigamerlin 3.0 and Koolsmoky's V-Control, because the tools caused WinXP to hang at startup (I use the V5 PCI in conjunction with a radeon 9700pro, on the same machine, so this is maybe an IRQ conflict problem). V-Control does not seem to have any option to enable/disable the DVI output.

Apart from this, one thing is obvious: switching to DVI in winxp seems not to be possibile at the moment, so we can guess the DVI output is not correctly detected.
This is a pic that show how the 2 video output of my Radeon are easily detected by the O/S, while the V5 looks like having just one vga output:



I thought we need Amigamerlin or somebody "inside" this card (Hank?) to know if we can find any kind of solution (a windows registry key?) to make Windows detect this output.

It seems that V5 doesn`t have dualhead support.I think that DVI output is only for flat monitors and the image is the same like pro CRT output.I`ve try to ask Hank about it.It will be nice to have dualhead V5 :-)
