In version 3.1* this card can only load Tails in low resolution (640 × 480).

FTR, I've asked Tom Watson <email@example.com> on our testers mailing list to provide more (useful/actionable) info about this problem.

This appears to contradict the report from January. I guess that's because something changed in Tails, that caused this regression.

Debian Live works perfectly
Do you know which version of Debian Live?
