i there a way to make an config for DigitalOut Resolution 1280 x 720 with 60Hz.
With the picasso tool umc i can make only a config with to 50hz when i use 1280 x 720.
Supports the Vampire this or is this not possible.

The V2 vampires have sort of a weak signal, it's why on the up coming V4 they put in a built on DigitalOut amplifier. 60Hz should work, but Depending on length or condition of cable or various other reasons sometimes 60Hz doesn't work. You can try getting a cheap DigitalOut amplifier that could help out.

I do routinely run 1280x720@50 Hz. Please note that with higher resolutions (=pixel clock) and screen depth, the Vampire will have to share more of the memory bandwidth to the video out. If you have the time and patience, tune the Picasso96 parameters for your own monitor. You should optimize "FrameSize", "BorderSize" and "Syncsize" to the smallest values your monitor accepts (for both horizontal and vertical syncs). This way you can in many cases reduce the pixel clock (or get higher refresh rates at given pixel clocks).

It has been observed by many users that FlatScreen TVs are commonly very lenient towards freak-ish mode definitions (opposed to Monitors).

Regarding the DigitalOut Amplifier: The V600 should get an DigitalOut amplifier as this card was not upgraded to the same design as the V500V2+. Majsta's V500+ cards output stronger levels on the Digital Video Out port. That makes DigitalOut repeaters unnecessary in typical application cases.
