Re: Display issue octane emxi vga

It has to be a faulty GPU. Or! A dirty connector (either on the midplane or on the GPU side)
Can you borrow a simple SI Video Board from a member and try with that?

A Guide (via example) on Irix Network Install

See Attached .pdf

Found this Guide I had written a couple years back, for me, in order to remember the process of Network Installing Irix...
Had to install Irix on a System without a CD Drive recently, so decided to share.

Re: Display issue octane emxi vga

hmm... try and eject and carefully clean the connectors (both on the motherboard and the Video Board) and reseat the Octane's Graphics Module!
If it doesn't get fixed, then it probably has to do with the Video Board's memory, I guess.

Re: Modern monitor on SGI is possible?

Yeap! That would be the reason why you shouldn't use these adapters of mine with RE systems.
The +10V will fry the monitor/converter box..

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

I strongly believe that any 500W PSU from a reputable manufacturer will work fine.
Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Thermaltake, EVGA are some examples of such makers.

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

I can't say cause I got it without any sort of manuals etc..
Just a box with the unit.
This link points to where I got it from: https://www.ekos.gr/product/ss_500et_bulk92
At least all the specs are there (in Greek though :P)

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

The exact model is: Seasonic SS-500ET But any similar modern PSU around 500Watts (combined) should work juust fine.. And my Fuel is loaded (V12, 800MHz, 2x DVD Drives, 2x HDDs). Just pick a "good" brand and no need to worry about the 3.3V or 5V max load of the original Fuel's WTX PSU. I kn...

Custom Resolution on Indy

So, just learned the basics around VFC and managed to create 1680x1050 .vfo files for a V12 Fuel, a V8 Octane, and a V10 Octane2. So far, so good (reduced blanking, etc). Now, I would like to find out whether it is possible to compile a custom resolution for the Indy 24 XL. The resolution format fil...

Re: Any experiences VGA/13W3 to HDMI/DVI converter?

hmm.. I believe you are missing some Resolution Profiles.
What is the Graphics Board of your Octane?
