Thanks for really fast answer.
The point was to use two 15" monitors instead of 1 30" ;-) to watch 16:9
I badly understood the functionality of the attribute zoom :-). I
thought some additional parameters are required to get higher scale.
But you were right about the fast proc. needed ... it's slow on my Duron ;(.
Do you know about GL driver for Riva ? It might help me to use hardware
scaling. Official Nvidia's kernel driver doesn't support Riva.
