Hi Till

I think the 800x600 mode comes from the TI X-loader bootargs, interrupt the boot
and type
to see what mode is in the bootargs line.

I tweaked mine using
  setenv bootargs console=ttyS2,115200n8 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw
rootfstype=ext3 rootwait omapfb.mode=dvi:640x480MR-16 at 60

X seems to pick this up and you can check by looking in /tmp/Xorg.0.log

However I still have a blank screen to look at, so I can't confirm
this actually does what it claims


PS take a copy of your old bootargs so you can re-instate it should
things go wrong...
