Remark for FlexRip/C

This procedure will not work for older CDI types. These had a limited set of resolutions due to hardware limitations, and this is enforced in FlexRip Configurator as well.

You can recognize these because the list of Device Types' in FlexRip Configurator typically shows two versions, e.g. compact4232q and compact4232q_var. The '_var' means "variable resolution" so you can add resolutions, and the other has a fixed set of resolutions.

If you want to add a resolution to such a device, please make sure first that the CDI hardware support this. If so, first you can do a "Change device type" to an '_var' type, and then follow the procedure above.
