Default Re: Setting Native Panel Resolution??? 1.0.9746

Most likely your TV is not capable of accepting its native resolution via HDMI port. This is really a quite common situation. LCDs and plasmas tend to accept 720p and 1080i from the digital inputs and native resolution from VGA input.

But if your TV does accept native resolution from digital input, but just doesn't tell it in EDID, you must create a modeline for the resolution and ask the screen to use it in your xorg.conf. Google gave this modeline for your Vizio:

ModeLine "1366x768" 85.5 1366 1414 1526 1798 768 771 777 795 +hsync -vsync
Thanks Phelin for the response. I found that modeline as well, but all I get is "mode not supported" I've disabled EDID and the other checks I could find, but to no avail. I've read on other posts that people have said that Nvidia doesn't support 1366x768. Is this true? I haven't found a clear answer on this..
