ISTR a disk came with the telly, maybe I should have kept it, though i'm
sure it only had a manual on it.
Most LCD TV manuals I've seen have a list of supported TV resolutions
for the PC input. What's the make & model of this set? Also does your
laptop have a DVI port?
Anyway the TV broke down so I have a new one and having the same issues.
The laptop does not have a DVI port and the TV only seems to offer up to
1360x768 for PC input which again is stretched horizontally, with bars
top and bottom.
I can't find anything in the video card settings in the laptop for PAL,
as someone else suggested.
Current set is a Hannspree SV42LMNB. I'll connect another computer to it
and see what I get.
That would seem to be a limitation of the laptop (video memory limit?) - the Hannspree manual indicates 1920x1080 60Hz for "PC Mode". I have an SJ25 model and it handled that resolution from a desktop system via D-Sub, but it appeared to "ring"; changing to a card with HDMI output solved that. I now use a 3 to 1 automatic HDMI switch (antiSWMBO mode :-) )
