I just built a new HTPC using a Geforce 9300 motherboard and 32-bit Vista. I have loaded the latest Nvidia drivers from Nvidia's web site. With my previous HTPC using XP Pro and a Geforce 6200 video card I could go in to the Nvidia control panel and adjust the custom resolution to 1360 x 768. My projector's native panel resolution is 1366 x 768. With this resolution the display would snap right in and I would get 1:1 pixel mapping. With my new setup I can enter the same infomation and click OK to test the resolution. Sure enough the resolution snaps right in and I have 1:1 pixel mapping while the resultig window counts down 15 seconds. It asks whether I want to keep the resolution or in 15 seconds it will revert back to the previous setting. I click OK to keep it but then the custom resolution disappears and the 1:1 pixel mapping is gone! It more less reverts back to 1024 x 768. The 1360 x 768 resolution is then clearly displayed in my list of custom resolutions but I can't really enable outside of the 15 second test window. Has anyone seen this behavior before? Can anyone offer a potential workaround or solution outside of purchasing powerstrip?
