Re: 1080i Resolution unused by nvidia-auto-select on 60-inch HDTV, [ Sony KDS-R60XBR1
If its any help (or consolation ?) I think I ran into the same bug/issue last night. My setup is at home (no internet) but here's what I recall off the top of my head :
Sony KV-34XBR970 (34" directview CRT, 16:9, 1080i native)
AMD64 X2 1.9 GHz Brisbane core
ASUS M2NPV-VM (onboard NVidia 6150)
First I learned about logverbose 6 and the no vertical refresh check, and that helped (HD modes no longer rejected). The vert refresh rate I was getting was also 120.1
Then I tried 1920x1080 and it looked good, but the screen was twice as tall as the TV screen : i.e. only the top half of the desktop was visible, the lower half was "below" the bottom edge of the TV.
For now, I switched to 720p which works okay, but I'd sure love to get 1080i working. If it helps I can get my logfile and xorg.conf via sneakernet, but it will be a day or two.
