My version is Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex Beta

In any case, i have this widescreen TV capable of 1920x1080 @ 60hz @ 16:10. I can't seem to get that resolution in ubuntu- even after installing the Nvidia drivers for my 8800gt. System specs would be pointless... it's working fine on my mac (iatkos) and windows (vista x64 ultimate) partition/harddrive. What do i have to put in xorg.conf to make this work?

I have a wide screen monitor which works great, but it doesn't seem to want to work properly on my wide screen TV. If I switch from 4:3 to 16:10, I have some of the top and bottom missing, just like it does with TV channels. PCLinuxOS with Ati HD card.

Something got screwed up somehow in my nvidia-server-settings. I simply re-installed that, and the res of 1920x1080 @ 60 @ 16:9 popped up on my nvidia-server settings (Administration -> Nvidia Server Settings) or run "sudo nvidia-settings" no qoutes. Both the top and bottom panels dissapeared. To fix this, right-click an empty panel space, then click de-select "extended", and this should make the panels not fit perfectly on your screen, but at least they won't be shoved off the screen/halfway concealed/etc.
