HD TV/Monitor as a monitor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought a ViewSonic 22in HD TV/Monitor and I wanted to use it for both. For some reason my computer will only output 4:3 and 16:10 resolutions. I updated the ATI drivers, tried powerstrip, something about editing my registry... Nothing will let me use 16:9 resolutions. I looked up the specs for my video card online and it says it supports 16:9 resolutions. I don't get it? What do I have to do?

what cable are you using? are you using DVI to HDMI, or are you using S-Video?

Apparently when used as a computer monitor it's 16:10 because it says on the box optimal pc resolution 1680x1050 which is what I have it set at right now.
