I have a cheapo MX440 (no external TDMS) and a Sharp 45" LCD (LC45GX6U).
It has 2 DVI connections. One to an interface box and another from the
interface box to the display.
I used the read-edid stuff at
http://john.fremlin.de/programs/linux/read-edid/ to get the edid info.
The interface box reports 1280x768p and 1024x768p while if I unplug the
interface box and connect directly to the display, it reports
1920x1080p. With the "Monitor" section generated by read-edid added to
my xorg.conf, X & mythtv just work for these resolutions. On bootup,
the bios even seems to mostly recogize the edid preferred resolution and
do proper console output. I thnk there is some dependency on the
computer/tv power up sequence. But if fails so seldom that I haven't
found a pattern yet.
I'm running nvidia's 6111 drivers. The 6629 drivers produce a wierd
horizontally overlapped display. I don't know why yet.
Not so bleak,
