OK.... I haven't had tooooo much of a play around with this because I'm in a little beyond my depth. Background: I have an EEEPC 901 with stock Xandros OS that I wanted to connect to my TV's VGA port. Plugged it in, didn't work (TV says 'Mode Not Supported'). Turns out default xorg.conf only allowed max virtual screen of 1024x768. Upped this to 2048x2048 (hardware max according to the guide I was following), restarted and successfully found the 1920x1080 mode that the TV likes. Applied it via xrandr commands in the terminal and I now have display on my TV. Problem: Although the eee seems/claims to be putting out 1920x1080 the TV (Samsung LA46A650) is accepting/running 1280x1024@60Hz. The end result is that I have a 1920x1080 virtual 'screen' of which I can only see 1280x1024 pixels with the bottom and both sides chopped (i.e. TV is displaying the top-middle of the 'screen') I can't seem to resize the TV image significantly enough to get the whole screen displayed, and was unable to set the display position to negative coordinates. EEEPC is running RandR v1.2, so I can't use panning or scaling either. I thought about creating a new 'mode' manually and attempting to apply that, but I really wouldn't know what to change that might be valid so didn't get far. Short of putting up with it or finally rebuilding it with a real OS.... anyone got ideas please? :-k Update: By the way.... yes I tried to use the 1280x1024 output mode (and others) but the TV rejected it... only seems to like the 1920x1080 mode for some reason.
