#7946 assigned bug

Don't use extra EDID resolution when it's 640x480

Description (last modified by axeld)

Older monitors obviously don't use the "additional video mode" to define their native/best/preferred resolution. Instead, you'll obviously often find something like 640x480 there. See #4625 for an example syslog.

This could be detected, and a better mode be chosen if EDID allows it.

I filed this under the app_server, but this also affects the boot loader.

I'll report for sure if it turns out that the fix for this ticket allows to also close the infamous "Hyundai" ticket I've filed :-)
