New BIOS Version discovered on Matrox Website

Hi folks!

I was checking the Matrox website today and found a new BIOS version for the P-series cards.
The file is dated at December the 18th, 2008 and its version is 2.00.04.003.

Before updating the BIOS of my graphics card, it was:

Code: Select all
Graphics card information
        Model:          Matrox Parhelia APVe
        Serial Number:  KEY61950
        PCI location:   Bus: 1 Device: 0 Function: 0
        Graphics BIOS:  Version: 3.4 - 37
                        Product ID: 979
        Serial EEPROM:  Type: SST SST25VF010
                        Size: 128 KBytes


and now it is

Code: Select all
Graphics card information
        Model:          Matrox Parhelia APVe
        Serial Number:  KEY61950
        PCI location:   Bus: 1 Device: 0 Function: 0
        Graphics BIOS:  Version: 3.7 - 42
                        Product ID: 979
        Serial EEPROM:  Type: SST SST25VF010
                        Size: 128 KBytes


Seems to be a minor release change (v3.4 to v3.7 on my card), so maybe it will solve some issues you all are experiencing. Please give a try and report back wheter it
worked for you.

I'll update the installation instructions for the BIOS in [http://forum.tuxx-home.at/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28] this HOWTO in a second, so please have a look there for detailed instructions on about how to get the latest BIOS version.

On my system this version works without issues currently.
