Is there a way for Nvidia Control Panel to automatically detect an HDTV?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Everytime I have to update or try different video drivers for this 8800 GT, I always have to unhook an LCD monitor from the other room (very annoying). I have to do this because I have to go into Nvidia control panel and check off "Treat as HDTV" under the custom resolutions settings. I tried hooking up my HDTV using the VGA but it still won't display anything after loading windows.

I can go into safe mode, but then I can't enter Nvidia Control panel.

Anyone?

Is there some sort of ini file that could keep my previous nv control panel settings after updating drivers (so after the reboot, 'Treat as HDTV' will be automatically be checked off in the options?

If you connect it through DVI or HDMI it will detect the tv automatically and you should be able to adjust the resolution from there.
If it's analog then I can't really help you cause I'm not familiar with it.

I believe you need to open the profile dialog box and select save. The file extension will be .nvp.
