Hm, the other entries for Prolite monitors include a model number, such as:

Iiyama; Iiyama TSA3931HT, Prolite39; ivm3900; 24.8-80.0; 56.0-85.0; 1

Do you have one of those (also, a DDC id)?

An INF file may be helpful.

Comment 2 a Fedora user 2005-09-15 20:29:16 UTC
Hi...thanks for the tip about the INF file; the line now looks like:

Iiyama; Iiyama Prolite E485S; ivm4822; 30.0-83.0; 56.0-76.0; 1

I have no idea where to find the model number; all I can find is 'E485S'...
