Hi RSawdey,

I have an Nvidia card(6600GT) and can produce 1920x1080. My crt hdtv is also capable of 480i,480p and 1080i. I wish 720p was also supported. I've gotten this modes to work both in Windows XP and linux. I needed to hack the modeline though for Linux. I think, FX5200 does support this kind of modeline too because max of FX5200 is 2035x2035. Here are the modelines that I have tested and worked.

The first one is the one I've always used.

Modeline "1920x1080_i" 74.52 1920 1952 2016 2208 1080 1084 1096 1126 -HSync -VSync Interlace
Modeline "in1080_i" 74.52 1760 1888 2096 2208 960 1012 1028 1126 -HSync -VSync Interlace
Modeline "1920x1080_59i" 76.11 1920 1952 2240 2272 1080 1104 1110 1135 interlace
Modeline "1920x1080_60i" 77.60 1920 1952 2240 2272 1080 1104 1110 1135 interlace
Modeline "1920x1080_61i" 79.08 1920 1952 2248 2280 1080 1104 1110 1135 interlace
Modeline "1776x1000_60i" 65.91 1776 1808 2056 2088 1000 1023 1028 1051 interlace
Modeline "1920x1080_30" 77.60 1920 1952 2240 2272 1080 1104 1110 1135
Modeline "1760x960_60i" 62.39 1760 1792 2024 2056 960 982 987 1009 interlace

But going back at Allesandro's post about 480iX1080i & 480pX1080i, this is TOTALLY wrong. Allesandro, you are very confused. DO NOT RUSH!!! There is no such thing as that kind of mode. You have to read your hdtv's manual. Prolly, you meant 480i, 480p and 1080i which are the very common modes on hdtv.

But, unfortunately, what RSadwey was telling is correct. The adapter is the culprit. It's wrong. What you might want to do is

Question for you Allesandro, what ports can you see on your FX5200 card? I looked at Newegg and some have DVI ports.
