I tried using the 1280x720@60Hz resolution on a Gateway FPD2185W monitor, and a Vizio P50 plasma TV, using a 6200 card over the VGA port, and it displays the colors wrong. Under Windows, with the latest drivers, the desktop looks red/pink. This resolution works fine on DVI. Any idea what could be causing it and how to correct?

Sounds like either your VGA cable or VGA port is screwed up. Check for bent pins and move the cable around a bunch and watch for any changes in the color.

EDIT: Wait, does it work ok on VGA at other resolutions?

The VGA cable is fine. The VGA works just fine for other resolutions. Any idea what could cause this particular resolution to behave this way? The Gateway monitor reports that the resolution is 1216x684 on its OSD.
