    First you should start a seperate thread for this problem because it is not the same problem this thread started with.

    Secondly we need much more information to help you.
    What video card is the box using.
    if you could go to a terminal and type
    note 1 is a Lower case L not #1.
    and post the results it would be helpful.

    Did you install or activate any video drivers?

    Limited resolution is usually because of missing driver so it works by default in a low resolution. The same happens in windows especially XP until you add the driver.

    Look around to activate any video drivers it might offer. In the latest version I am not sure where the option is exactly, was it in Hardware or similar.

    You can open the Dashboard and search for Hardware in the search line.
