Default Unable to change refresh rate

I am running OpenSuse 11.0 with the latest stable driver 180.22.

The PC is connected to a full HD Samsung TV via HDMI.
I have defined modes for 1920x1080 at 24, 50 and 60 Hz.

With dynamic twinview activated I can select these refresh rates in nvidia-settings and the Xorg.0.log says that the selected mode has been set:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1920x1080_50"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1920x1080_24"

But the TV and nvidia-settings -q RefreshRate always reports 60 Hz:
jpt@htpc2:~> nvidia-settings -q RefreshRate

Attribute 'RefreshRate' (htpc2:0.0; display device: DFP-0): 60,00 Hz.
'RefreshRate' is an integer attribute.
'RefreshRate' is a read-only attribute.
'RefreshRate' is display device specific.
'RefreshRate' can use the following target types: X Screen, GPU.

jpt@htpc2:~> nvidia-settings -q RefreshRate

Attribute 'RefreshRate' (htpc2:0.0; display device: DFP-0): 60,00 Hz.
'RefreshRate' is an integer attribute.
'RefreshRate' is a read-only attribute.
'RefreshRate' is display device specific.
'RefreshRate' can use the following target types: X Screen, GPU.

With dynamic twinview disabled I can change refresh rate with xrandr with the same result.

Here is the mode validation part from Xorg.0.log:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1920 x 1080
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (100, 100); computed from "DPI" X config option

I have tried different xorg.conf settings, from minimal changes to the one generated by Yast2/sax2 to generating it from nvidia-settings without merging anything from the existing xorg.conf.

This is working without any problem with my old PC with a FX5500 card connected to the same TV with a DVI to HDMI adapter using the latest drivers provided in the OpenSuse repository.

I have also tried to switch the PCs between different HDMI connections on the TV with the same result.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this?

Try disabling the full GPU scaling option in nvidia-settings. You may also need to enable the "ExactModeTimingsDVI" option.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

Disabling GPU scaling in nvidia-settings did the trick.

Adding Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native" to the device section in xorg.conf seems to work as well.
