I hooked up my computer to my HD tv and i could only get it to do 1024x768 res and not the 720p. My question is do i need a DVI-HDMI adapter to get it to run at 720p?

what kinda tv is it.. you should be able to run 1280x720..if you have a descent tv use the vga port on the tv.. dvi and hdmi are the same thing except one carries an audio signal as well.. i know its not your video card.. so it has to be your tv.. or your drivers..

What are you hooking up thru? I have to use the VGA connection on my TV to allow a fixed resolution which is 1360x768.

My card runs at 1600x1200 res without a problem isn't that higher then 720p res?

Im hooking it up to a 42inch plasma samsung 720p HDTV.

The thing is when i look at CCC it says it has HDTV settings then i hooked up my computer my HDTV and those HDTV settings in the CCC were not there... i was thinking maybe i was using a wrong cord.

The cord i used to connect my PC to the HDTV is the cord that came with my 20.1 inch samsung LCD monitor. Im not possitive what the cord is called.

I just unplugged the cord from the back of my monitor and plugged it into the PC port on the back of the samsung HDTV.

You might want to try to find out what input resolutions the TV supports.There are some TVs which just don't support PC inputs well and limit what resolution windows will allow you to set... Check out the display forum at avsforum.com if you can't get an answer here.
