Okay, I have an Asus F8 series laptop running Kubuntu 8.04. It has a Geforce 9500M with a dvi out that I am trying to connect to my Philips 42" LCD TV. It's a Philips model 42PFL7432D/37. The connection goes from the dvi out to the hdmi in on the TV.

The monitor is detected in the Nvidia Xserver settings, and when I try to display it, it shows up distorted with green snow and improperly sized.

Does anyone know how to get past this? Thanks.
