NVIDIA Driver not getting right mode over HDMI
I have a problem that seems fairly common. The nvidia driver (180.18) isn't calculating the right mode from my TV's (Dell 32" LCD) EDID. It ends up sending the TV a signal that can't be displayed. If I turn off use of EDID freqs, I get better results, but the chosen mode still isn't "right".
If I use the VESA driver instead, it gets it right every time and chooses my desired resolution of 1280x720.
Is there a way I can figure out what the VESA driver has detected and hand craft a modeline to use with the nvidia driver? I know when I crank up X's logging I get lots of information about the TV's timing, etc.
