Default Problems with incomplete HDTV EDID (SOLVED)

Hiya all,

I have a problem, I just dont get my TV to work with HDTV or the physical resolution of my TV and / or HDTV to work. I managed with Windows by now, but with Linux I got some problems still.

As far as I can see, the EDID of my Philips TV is a piece of crab. The resolutions it contains are hardy useful, most of them make the picture really ugly. The TV guys don't seem to know what they are doing here, really.

How can I find with some driver parameters to workaround this problem ? I thought about updating the EDID of my TV, but that's something I would like to do as the very last solution, since Philips doesnt seem to offer an update here, and there is a risk that the TV gets trashed if I do it wrong.

NVidia used to allow modes, that are not supported by the TV (Yeah, sure, the physical TV res not supported ), with the last release I got problems to activate them. I attached a Log to show the EDID and the two resolutions I'm trying to get activated :

1920x1080i HD and 1366(8)x768 (TV res)

Cheers for your help in advance,

Dirk.
