Can you describe what you mean by that? Where does that happen?

No, you can use DVI and DisplayPort directly.

I don't have a way to test Surround, which makes this difficult. What are the monitors listed as in strobelight-setup.exe? Does it show "(3 active)" for the monitors? Do the results change with and without Surround?

There shouldn't need to be a special procedure for Surround. I designed Strobelight to work with multiple monitors, and this worked with Surround in the older drivers. Then NVIDIA changed something that broke EDID overrides with Surround, and custom resolutions couldn't even be added with the NVIDIA control panel.

I think newer drivers fixed custom resolutions with Surround, so one workaround might be to define the same custom resolutions manually for each monitor using the NVIDIA control panel.

For all refresh rates:

Horizontal active: 1920
Horizontal front porch: 48
Horizontal sync width: 32
Horizontal total: 2080

Vertical active: 1080
Vertical front porch: 3
Vertical sync width: 5

For strobed refresh rates:

120 Hz (strobed): set the vertical total to 1149.
110 Hz (strobed): set the vertical total to 1143.
100 Hz (strobed): set the vertical total to 1138.

For non-strobed refresh rates:

121 Hz: set the vertical total to 1144 and the refresh rate to 120.500 Hz.
111 Hz: set the vertical total to 1138 and the refresh rate to 110.500 Hz.
101 Hz: set the vertical total to 1133 and the refresh rate to 100.500 Hz.

144 Hz has different timing parameters if you need to add it manually:

Horizontal front porch: 24
Horizontal sync width: 32
Horizontal total: 2008

Vertical front porch: 3
Vertical sync width: 5
Vertical total: 1098



Very interesting, let's see if we can make this work. It's coming up as one 3240x1920 NV surround display, so I will try your method when I get home. You may want to consider reworking this program in Nvidia won't fix this... Green Bastards

How I got It working was uninstalling my surround display, then activating lb on my three displays, then running the NV surround tool, then reactivating lb. It was buggy and reset every time the computer was reset, but it worked... Kinda.

Also, when doing the manual edid override, does that work for the DP port or only the DVi port?
