It's a Syntax Olevia LT30HV, an HDTV monitor designed to work with a PC 
over VGA or DVI.

Its manual lists 7 modes for DVI, and under OSX on the same hardware the 
Mac finds 10 modes it likes though most of them are not among the 7 in 
the manual. They all work, but I can't really say if OSX is getting them 
from EDID.

Can I hotwire a mode in xorg.conf?
