Increasing VGA resolution

Postby Ph03nix » 26/01/2010, 0:47

Hi,

I have connected my NC10 to my TV in order to watch some movies, the only problem is that the max output resolution that I can output through the VGA is 1024x768, which looks pretty nasty on a widescreen TV.

Xrandr --q gives this output:

Code: Select all

ph03nix@hermes:~$ xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 600, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
   1024x768       75.1     70.1     60.0
   832x624        74.6
   800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3     56.2
   640x480        72.8     75.0     66.7     60.0
   720x400        70.1
LVDS1 connected 1024x600+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 222mm x 130mm
   1024x600       60.0*+
   800x600        85.1     72.2     75.0     60.3     56.2
   640x480        85.0     72.8     75.0     59.9
   720x400        85.0
   640x400        85.1
   640x350        85.1


Any ideas how I can up the output resolution?

Thanks,
Ph03nix
