Getting Resolution to Work on my new TV
« on: September 21, 2007, 05:20:08 am »
Hi there.  I just ran through the DVD installation without any major issues. I have a Sony KDL40V3000 (supports up to 1080p) paired with a nVidia 7600 gs. I ran the initial installation over a vga cable but couldn't get any selections to work, so I switched to a DVI->HDMI cable. Still had problems getting things working until finally, after retrying 1080p@60Hz, things seemed to work. I completed the installation and rebooted my computer.

Now the screen just remains blank. I can see the initial KUbuntu loading screen. I can hear the setup video playing over the speakers, but my TV is blank. How do I make this work?

I had similar issues with DVI->HDMI using 720p/1080i with a different TV and nvidia 6xxx.  I got it to work due to one or more of the following:

* Updated my BIOS to the latest (1001 for my ASUS)
* Updated my nvidia drivers: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers
* Different combinations of frequencies in the Wizard
