Default problem with tv

hi to all,

all i want to do is to see movies on TV which is connected to pc via DVI
TV is a samsung 32", monitor is LG 1917S and vga card is nvidia 7600gs
I'm using nvidia-settings tool to apply resolution on my TV
when i select 1360x768 @60Hertz it gives me big black vertical bars on both sides off TV screen
the only resolution that perfectly fits is only the 1024x768@60 but i want to have 1360x768@60
after doing some net search i found some tips but i couldn't apply them succesfully on my system

if somebody have a working solution or some tips about it pls share it with me

and another question
why nvidia-settings tool reports refresh rate, 1280x1024@75, other than desktop utility reports, 1280x1024@50 or 51 or 52 Hertz, for my monitor ?

thanks for your time

This may be a limitation of your TV. You don't specify the type, so impossible to know. Many TVs support only "typical computer resolutions" like 1280x1024 and not the native LCD resolution on their computer inputs. Weird, but true.

This question has been answered many times on this board. See the README file for the explanation.

tv's manual claims that TV supports these resolutions :
800x600
1024x768
1360(1366 i'm not sure)x768
