Somebody recently mentioned  cvt to create a Modeline

Don't know if it might help to put one in

This was just a note to myself about it

Use cvt !! 

cvt 1280 1024 75

# 1280x1024 74.90 Hz (CVT 1.31M4) hsync: 80.30 kHz; pclk: 138.75 MHz
Modeline "1280x1024_75.00"  138.75  1280 1368 1504 1728  1024 1027 1034 1072 -hsync +vsync
