Hello all,
I just installed Maverick Meerkat a couple hours ago and I'm having a problem setting it up with my tv I am using as the monitor (panasonic TC-p42x1). The native resolution of the monitor is 1024x768 but that is the only resolution that isn't an option. I installed the recommended driver for my graphics card (nvidia geforce 8400 gs) and for some reason it detects the resolution as 1280x720. When I go into the settings to try to change that the options it give me range from 1920x1080 to 320x200 and everything in between EXCEPT 1024x768. Any ideas?

If you installed the drivers through System=>Administration=>Additional drivers there should be a Nvidia Settings either in System=> Preferences or Administration that allows you to configure multiple displays with different resolutions.

I'm using ATI right now so I can not help you further.

Good Luck and don't get frustrated.

In the Nvidia Settings there are also plenty of resolution options but 1024x768 is not one of them.

Of course I have the EXACT same question, lovely how their is no solution. I restarted my computer and now Im stuck in 800x600! Optimal resolution for monitor is 1024x768 and there is no option in Nvidia settings. What a great way to start off a day.
