Hi everyone! I'm new-ish to Ubuntu. I used it for a long while on Intrepid, then switched to Windows 7 for simplicity with gaming. Now that I have a new PC, I switched my laptop back to Ubuntu.

However, when I used Windows 7, I could use my Vizio 22" HDTV as the primary display at 1920x1080. Now that I'm using 10.10 and didn't have the TV when I used Intrepid, I have no idea how to set it up. I can only get the screen to share and only up to 1360x768. Can anyone help me get it set up like in Windows where the TV is the primary and only screen showing (even when laptop is shut), and to the right resolution.
