I don't think that is the problem.  The windows
instruction manual lists resolutions up to 1920x1200 at 16bits
so it would not be a device limitation unless it is the linux
driver that introduces the limitation.

As I mentioned, I was able to get what appeared to
be 1280x768 at 16bit to run but the image was shifted
so I thought I might have the mode info wrong.  I'll be
testing things with a real monitor and report more
fully from that.

That's about the max that the USB2VGA hardware can handle. Also about
the max that the USB bus itself can handle! USB can't move that many
