You probably also need to export the EDID data from within the NVIDIA
Settings GUI. Save it the edid.bin to your home directory e.g.
~/.nVidia-edid/edid.bin. Then add the following to your xorg.conf -
Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/home/mythtv/.nVidia-edid/edid.bin"
If you can you should use the NVIDIA macros to set the resolution (again
in your xorg.conf) -
# 1080p 720p 480p
Modes "1920x1080_60" "1280x720_60" "720x480_60"
