Default Re: Problems with incomplete HDTV EDID

Keeshah -

I just bought a new TV two days ago. A 32" Samsung LNS-3251D. The TV has both VGA and HDMI ports. When using a HDMI->DVI cable, I don't get anything useful back about EDID. Even under Windows using Powerstrip, I can't get a resolution to work at the panel's native res (1366x768p).

I ran to the store and bought a VGA cable. Hooked it up, added 1360x768 to my "Modes" section, restarted X and bam, it works. The EDID spit out for VGA for me is significantly different then the EDID for HDMI. You might want to look into using the VGA port on your TV if its available.
