16/9 on tv-out with 7800gt
 
I've read a few posts stating that 16/9 resolution via tv-out isn't possible, but I am able to run 1280x720, 960x540 and so forth in Windows, so is there any way do the same in Linux?

The only supported TV-out modes are those documented in the driver README.

Thanks for your reply.
I'm fairly new to linux (ubuntu), can you tell me where to find the readme?

Its on the same page where you downloaded the driver.

I updated from the console, but I went to the readme here and I couldn't find anything. :(

I skimmed that page while browsing the readme, but I couldn't find the resolutions you mentioned.

The resolutions are restricted to those in the driver. You can view them by starting X with the following command and then inspecting your X log:
startx -- -logverbose 6

Thanks,
