Windows 7 and HDTV resolution
I have just rebuilt an HTPC with Windows 7. It is in a silverstone LC-18 case with integrated 7" touch screen. I'm running 191.07 drivers, with an XFX 8500GT, PCI-x card with TV-out. I am trying to achieve and output resolution of 720x480 for both windows desktop and inside Media Center so I can clone my displays. Media Center allows me 480p (720x480) with no trouble, and both 7" monitor and HDTV display perfect. On the Win7 desktop however, I am limited to 'standard' resolutions compatible with my 7" touchscreen. I am able to get 800x600 to work on the monitor, but can't add a custom resolution to go to 720x480. On this same machine, with Vista 32, and nVidia 175.19 and/or 178.24 drivers I get another menu pick. In the nVidia Control Panel I can 'adjust HDTV resolution' and pick 480p among several others. This option does not show on 191.07. When I try to downgrade to those other drivers, I get warnings about not being compatible, and they won't install. Has anyone else come across this? -thx howie
