I have an intel graphics card... the port is a normal monitor port, the blue one. I know how to connect it to the tv, and I have already done that, but I get horrid resolution, it shows like a fifth of the screen on the tv. I know I probably have to edit xorg or something, and I have no problems with that, I'm not scared of config files or the command-line. However, if I don't know what to put, I can't fix it.
Sorry I didn't explain clearly enough last time. Thanks for trying to help.
Somebody once said: "If you've got it you've got it, if you don't you don't." That statement was terribly flawed.
