    Hi Folks,

    After installing 32bit Ultimate, my resolution refused to go any higher than 1024x768 on my 19" Widescreen LCD. It stumped me for a long while, until I tried the other connector (two outputs on the video card + the tvio) and amazingly I could now use 1400x900 :)
    So with some more testing, I discovered the actual problem was caused by my settings for TV Out.

    I can now have 1400x900 in either output socket BUT only when I don't have TV out enabled. Once that is enabled then it reverts to 1024x768.
    Also with the TV out settings, extended desktop doesn't work at all, it won't keep the settings, but clone does work (abeit with the lower res).

    The drivers are the one's released earlier this week from the ATI website.

    Anyway, hope this helps other people with similar issues, and perhaps someone can assist me with my tv out issues (while keeping the high res on my main display).
