    I have connected my TV to my PC via DVI cable and it works great.Up till now i've had them on extend screen with my monitor resolution at 1680x1050 and TV resolution at 1920x1080 but now i want to duplicate my screen on my TV but when i do the TV resolution reverts to 1680x1050.
    Is there any way to duplicate my monitor on my TV in different resolutions?

    No. If you clone or duplicate the screen, you are stuck with the lowest common resolution.

    If it used different resolutions, it wouldn't be a "duplicate" or clone.

    It is the way Windows is designed. I wouldn't call it a problem.

    Scaling is hardware dependant, and not all hardware will work in the way that you want.
