Re: 1080i Resolution unused by nvidia-auto-select on 60-inch HDTV, [ Sony KDS-R60XBR1 ]
Very curious to see how this works out. I have very similar set-up except Panasonic PTV and PCI-E card.
Could not get DVI/DVI to work properly. EDID recognition was "DFP" (digital flat panel), same as your log shows. Recognition is fine in WinXP and NV Control Panel gives complete control of display.
In Linux (Ubuntu 6.06) I switched to S-video output with splitter to component input and used "TV" modes in Xorg.conf to get display. Suspected "buggy" EDID and gave up on DVI/DVI.
Hopefully these friendly folks can get you fixed and I'll get "fixed" too.
(and thanks in advance NV)
