    How about modifying it so that it looks for a mode with the highest
    refresh rate if either a non-generic modedb is used or
    info.monspecs.{vfmin,vfmax,hfmin,hfmax,dclkmax} are all non-zero,
    and for a mode with refresh rate closest to 60 Hz otherwise?

    I'm sorry for the delayed reply.

    Best regards.
