Default philips LCD @1080i

hello
i have a philips LCD 32pf9986 with a native resolution of 1366x768
i also have a dvd player (dvp 5980) which is able to use the full resolution with 1080i, so basicaly it is possible.

i've tried alot of modelines and disabled lots of checking features, but i cannot get it to work (the screen usualy complains since i've disabled most of the xorg/nvidia checks)

can someone post me a valid modeline please?

thanks in advance

here is some info:

Maybe check here.

thanks for the replies
i have the tv connected with DVI as it would be a waste not to, no?

the driver i use:
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-100.14.09

so it could be that VGA works and DVI does not?

the DVD player i have connected is hdmi->dvi adapter->dvi tv

pe1chl: could you post or PM me your whole xorg.conf please? which driver are you using?

With this TV this will make absolutely no difference!

Behind the DVI input is a digital-to-analog convertor, and the resulting RGB signal is fed into the switchmatrix that selects the videosource (scart, vga etc) and behind that matrix the signal is again converted to digital for further processing.

I am currently using driver version 9755.

Try with a VGA cable. That will work. And the quality really is the same.
Nvidia and DVI+Interlace are not good friends... when you read other threads you will find that everyone with a TV who tries to use DVI runs into the same bug (resolution 540 lines instead of 1080, frequency auto-determined to be double what it really is, and then deemed to be out of range).
