Hi all,

I finally found the problem why I was stuck in such bad resolutions, my monitors. I tried installing on a backup 17 inch HP monitor I had laying around and hardy heron worked like a charm. Desktop works great, nvidia drivers installed and desktop effects work wonderfully, but I can't for the life of me seem to get my primary screen to work.

It's a kinda old sony rear projection hdtv. Hardy does not detect it at all. I get stuck with plug n play default monitor at the 640x480 - 1024x768 range.

I was curious how to proceed to get this tv working under hardy.
for reference the tv is Sony KP51WS520

Truthfully I don't even know what the specs are. Everywhere I look the best spec I find for video is 1080i. I can't seem to find the refresh / sync rates and supported resolutions.

anyways any help is appreciated. If I can't get it to work I'll have to use this tiny backup for now.
