I am not able to set the resolution for my HiDef TV, it is connected via DVI and has a max res of 1312x800, it is a 720p JVC HDILA. It only shows 1 choice of resolutions, I have changed my xorg.conf file to no avail. It also seems everytime I start the computer nothing shows on the TV until the OS is fully booted and ready to go, actually I have to go into nvidia settings everytime and manually start twin view. If I restart X I have to start the whole process over again. When I choose the option to edit xorg file on the nvidia settings page it doesnt do it, If I choose to view file and copy paste the new xorg file when I restart X it crashes and I really have to start from scratch. I am using the latest drivers installed via ENVY and have a dual boot system with a 6150geforce MOBO. Please help I dont want to use windows. PS even in windows it has to fully boot into OS before I can see anything on the TV.

Here is the relevant section of my xorg.conf that enabled 720p from Nvidia 6200 to my mits WD62725. This works if i plug in to vga or hdmi out on the card. For some reason the Nvidia gui would not enable 720p.

You can also google mythtv and modeline to find a larger variety of configs for hdtv output.
