Hi I'm new to Linux and am trying to hook my laptop up to my 40" Toshiba. When I did this in Win 7, the best resolution to use for TV display was 1280x720. When I hook my laptop up in Ubuntu, this resolution is unavailable. Why are there less resolutions available in Ubuntu? Is there a way that I can override this? Lastly, Win 7 will remember to reconfigure my resolution when my TV is connected and then switch it back to the monitor's native resolution when disconnected. Is this possible in Linux?

Win 7:


Linux:


Thanks
Chris
