19 inch TV Using high resolutions out of spec, need advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've got a 19" Phillips TV for my monitor, it's was a quick and easy wallmart solution to a problem one night. The thing is, after the most recent updates in linux I've found and abnormality where if I start from 1152x864 and work my way up I can get to 1920x1080 on the PC input in the Nvidia CP (one resolution at a time, then hit apply and so forth). Now it says it's rated for 1360x768 but has a 1080p rating on it elsewhere (General video output says it can do 1080i), should I just be happy that I can do a high resolution and not worry about it? Everywhere I've looked has basically said if a LCD can play it it's fine, that I should just let it run at the desired resolution.

Maybe its just glitching or is only saying that you're @ 1080p when in fact you're still on 768p? do you notice your desktop view gaining space?

You know when you do any 3D intensive application weather or not it's at 768vs 1080. That and things look much smaller, no it's at 1080 and it is doing it very well. I've started to think it disables post processing at the high resolutions because they actually work smoother than the lower ones.
