I do have EdidDpi disabled (Nvidia 8774), but I thought I tried
without it disabled and it still used the DPI I specified, mabye I'm
remembering wrong.

:-) Which is why I was confused. It makes sense to me why it's not
possible to use both.  Some docs on the wiki say anything besides
100x100 dpi is wrong while others say to use a DisplaySize, and also
suggest that you may need both!

Thanks for the explanations. Now I just have to wait for 0.21 to get a
perfect display on my tv. :-)
