XVR-1200 Display Issues -- DVI Not Cooperating, Need Help!

Hey there;

I have a Sun Blade 2500 (red) with an XVR-1200 card in it. I am running Solaris 10 (the latest download off Sun) and I am attempting to drive two Acer 24-inch AL2146W B monitors. These monitors have both DVD-D inputs and the old 15-pin inputs as well.

When I plug these monitors straight into the DVI ports using DVD-D cables that definitely work with these monitors -- I have another workstation with two XVR-1000's and these monitors work great on the DVI-ports on that machine -- I get nothing. The monitors report "no signal". However, fbconfig -prconf reads the "Monitor Type" correctly.

When I whip out the the DVI - to -VGA converters and plug the monitors in via the 15 pin inputs, the monitors work; however the pixels are kinda shimmery, like there's a timing problem. The monitors report a H: 73.4 KHz V: 59.5 Hz refresh rate, which is slightly off from what is expected.

I am trying to use the 1920x1200x60 resolution for both monitors and I have them in DoubleWide mode. fbconfig -propt and -prconf are pasted in below. I have been able to find absolutely no information on this, so any tips / help would be appreciated; even if the help is just "this card is broken" that would be a good to know ;)
