    Thumbs down GMA X4500 video problems

    Mother: Asus P5QPL-VM EPU
    Video: GMA x4500/G41
    Distro: Jaunty (X Updates)
    Monitor: Dell
    HDTV: Sharp Aquos 1080p

    The Asus motherboard has three video outputs: VGA, DVI, & HDMI. I'm
    ignoring the VGA output. The graphic processor is an
    Intel GMA X4500:G41:2E32.

    lspci -vvnn:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 4 Series
    Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2e32] (rev 03)

    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:836d]

    Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr-
    Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx+

    If I connect the DVI port to my Dell monitor, I can select (and do select)
    the full 1920x1080 resolution.

    If I connect the HDMI port to the Aquos and reboot, I get 1600x1200,
    60hz, period, on both displays. I cannot change the resolution on either
    display, at all. I cannot change HDMI1, the Dell, or HDMI2, the Aquos.

    XRandR tells me that I may choose 1920, 1368, etc, but I can't actually
    select any of these other resolutions. This is kind of annoying, to tell
    the truth. I bought this Motherboard as the basis for a home theater
    PC. Don't tell me that I have to go the Windows route...

    /etc/X11/xorg.conf is no help at all, it's filled with generic blab:

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"

    Where are the real config files?

    How the heck do I fix this? I want 1920x1080 on both my Dell and
    my Sharp.
