Software and TV/Video Controls

To better illustrate the features of the ATI software, below are screenshots showing the various control panel options. Most are self-explanitory. This page shows the OS X software. Due to the number of images, I've created a separate page showing the OS 9 control software. (Since the TV/Video out options/controls are the same in both OS versions, I didn't repeat the TV/Video options/screens on the OS 9 page.)

Display Modes: (Availablility will depend on your monitor's ability to support these resolutions). The image below shows the list of resolutions with the Radeon 8500 Mac Edition when connected to a Sony FW900 (widescreen) CRT monitor. (Later driver udpates may offer more/different resolutions and the selection will vary depending on the monitor used.)
