Have you *ever* been able to see the desktop on your tv?

Try going to a terminal and entering this command...

sudo nvidia-settings


...and detecting/enabling your tv from there. Does that work?

Yes, plug in your tv.
Then run... sudo nvidia-settings
Then click "Detect Displays" and see if it is detected.
Then you should be able to Configure it (Clone mode, set resolution, etc...).

I've never tested one on a TV. But I would think that procedure should work fine.
