HELP!! Can't get PC to Synch Properly with VGA input on my Pioneer Elite 710HD

I've owned my 1st gen HDTV for five years and it's still going strong, but one thing has me close to replacing it.. For the life of me I cannot find a way to get my new HTPC with eVGA NVidia 7950gt graphics card to properly synch with the VGA input on my tv. I've read some of the older powerstrip timing threads as well as the new Nvidia custom timing threads and it appears that others have made this work without too much fuss.

So, if anyone knows how I might make this work it would be much appreciated!

I've treid the component inputs and they work with my video cards breakout cable, BUT the overscan on my tv makes this virtually unusable.

BTW, I've tried all the standard configurations that Nvidia drivers provide, but to no avail. My TV specs say that the VGA input will take a 1080i signal at 30mhz refresh which should translate to a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Or 480p or even 540p at a 60mhz refresh rate.

Hoping someone out there has a 7 series Nvidia card and Pioneer Elite RPTV that can shed some light on my frustration.

If I understand you correctly you have tried [email protected], [email protected] and 1080i. Have you tried (720p) [email protected] since it may be a misprint that is will accept 1080i over component since it was uncommon for VGA inputs on HDTVs five years ago to accept higher resolution interfaced video over VGA. A progressive [email protected] video is not the same the same as 1920x1080 interlaced video which concists of 30 even line field and 30 odd line fieds per second. Many video card drivers have 1080i as a specific selection for use with HDTV display interfaces such as component and DVI/HDMI.
