Default 7950GT twinview resolution problem

I have a 7950GT with a 19" samsung synchmaster monitor and a 42" alfaview lcd tv connected.

The syncmaster runs fine, but the tv (which is just detected as "HAR") only has the option of running 800x600, whenever i try to have it run any other resolution, even 640x480, it just goes blank.

This is only a problem on linux, it runs both 720p and 1080i fine under windows with the latest forcewear drivers, so i am sure it's not a probem with the tv.

The tv is connected to the gfx card via a HDMI cable and a dvi > hdmi converter.

any help in solving this problem so i can at least run 720p would be most appreciated.

Default Re: 7950GT twinview resolution problem

problem solved!

for one last desperate try (i've been working on this for 4 days), i did what i thought was suicide - i set Option "UseEdidFreqs" "0" which i thought meant that i had to know everything myself since the card woul no longer autodetect my displays.

turns out this made the card love my tv and i now run both 720p and 1080i without a hinge, greatlooking smooth picture and everything
