Installation issues / Re: Not having a lot of luck :(

The TV is an LG 32LX2R. This one: I'm connecting it to the computer via the VGA output, to the TV's DVI-A input.
I know that it IS capable of working perfectly with this computer because it does so under Windows.

Hi, my system is an Elonex Artisan., with a P4 Prescott CPU.
I'm using the onboard graphics at the moment, which I think is an Intel chipset. I tried using the 720p and it did not work very well at all - the desktop was larger than the screen, which seemed to be displaying quite a low resolution.

I also have some more problems I didn't mention below:

 - Didn't detect my IR reciever (built into the motherboard, I think it's a Window Media Centre compatible one)

 - I can't find a way of accessing any of the media on my fileserver.

I realise that a hell of a lot of work must have have gone into this software, but I can't say I'm desperately impressed, currently. It seems to be a Jack of All Trades but Master of None :(

Hi, I have today been trying to install LinuxMCE from the Quick install DVD, and not very much is going right. The problems I am having are:

 - None of the offered resolutions are remotely appropriate for my LG HDTV, and result in an extremely poor picture. (I'm connecting to it via VGA, which works fine under Windows. (The TV is happiest with 1360/1366 x 768 @ 60Hz, at 16:9, where it 1:1 maps the pixels and looks stunning.) The TV doesn't like the 1024 x 768 x 60Hz offered at all and refuses to display it. This same resolution works OK under Windows.

 - The font in the launch manager window is very small and virtually unreadable.

 - Although my home cinema amp supports DTS, it does not recognise the DTS test in the setup wizard. Again, DTS works fine when playing movies under Windows.

 - Open GL does not appear to work - I had to reinstall the entire OS because I couldn't get it to stop trying to reinitialise GL every 10 seconds.

After a totally wasted Sunday afternoon, I am extremely close to going back to Windows XP. Please help. :'(
