Default Display Port on Quadro FX 3700M (Linux)

Hi.

I recently purchased a Dell M6400 Covet which sports a Quadro FX 3700M Nvidia graphics card. I installed Kubuntu 64bit (8.10 - Intrepid) and enabled the restricted drivers which installed version 177.xxx. This appeared to work very well after fudging the Dpi to 96x96.

I have since purchased a Display Port to HDMI converter from Dell in the hope of playing around with the mythtv frontend to my HD ready TV. The only problem is that the nvidia-settings utility doesnt appear to detect the Display Port output.

After looking at the list of supported cards and "newly supported cards" for the 180.xx driver, I dont think the Quadro FX 3700M is fully supported yet?

Should the Display port work, or are there known issues around using a Display Port -to- HDMI converter? Unfortunately I dont have a device with a Display Port input to test.

Any words of wisdom from someone "in the know" would be much appreciated.

TIA
