Doesn't the adapter need to tell the Mac what resolutions it can handle?

I got one free with my new monitor. It's stunning how less cramped the mac
feels when i use my 17" rather then the 14" that came with it :)

I don't really know about fun. I was given a Centris 630AV last summer that
I use to test the web sites I develope on. And, as a long-time Mac hater, I
must say that Mac OS really is much friendlier and simpler then Windows. As
long as I have a real computer (read Linux) nearby to do work on, playing
with the Mac was nowhere near as painful as I thought it would be. My main
gripe is that applications or version of apps for 68k machines are becoming
few and far between.

BTW, I haven't found out how to use the AV inputs on the Centris yet. Where
would I find a small app that would read the video/audio in and display it
on the screen, at least. This would make (albeit silly, noisy, large)
monitor for my C64, TI-99 and various Ataris and Odesseys.
