On my laptop PC (on openSUSE-11.1 with proprietary ATI driver for an ATI radeon3450 under KDE-4.3.2), typing “xrandr -q” (with external devices plugged in) gives the preferred mode (and all the resolution choices): Laptop External Monitor Support - openSUSE Forums
… this was for an external projector, but I assume HDMI to a HDTV would look similar.
Heres what i wanna do: VGA_1 1680x1050 DVI-I_2/digital 1360x768
As u can see i have 1680x1050 on the VGA_1 screen but i want to have it when i login/out .Now i have to do the (cvt 1680 1050) in terminal and then use the xrandr --newmode xrandr --addmode
And that works fine for the VGA_1 but not the DVI
You can also see that the mode is possible because bin bash:answers the cvt 1360 768 question.
Ok i think i go to the /etc/x11/xorg.conf and add the resolution 1680x1050 in a modeline, then i see no xorg.conf file there…
So how do i add the modes for all users login/out…
Im sorry for making this to more questions but this is what i wanna do im gonna search for the EDID info in the var/log file but i haved this resolutions before with FGLRX in ubuntu but in new to open suse and i wanna try using xrandr.

I don’t know the 1st thing about windoze. My last windoze at home was win95.
Still if you believe windoze can get you the higher resolution for this hardware, and you do not see the option (with xrandr -q ) in Linux, then maybe you need to use a different graphic driver in Linux?
Which graphic driver are you using in Linux ? openGL ? Proprietary ATI ?
So here is the reason why i started this topic with fglrx driver
my desktop can not get 1680x1050 because AMD/ATI has not added the possibility to disable the EDID option who you can do windows version.
But with this fglrx driver i can get the 1360x768 on my secondary screen but im stucked with 1400x1050 on my desktop.
how do i remove xorg.conf files from /etc/x11/xorg.conf because yesterday fglrx didnt work (seems to be an bug maybe you have to turn comp off to disable vesa driver?)and i got like 4 xorg.conf
