Pls Help Catalyst 6970Xfire setup, 1900x1200 not selectable... :( :( :

Hi,

I just got a new build that features 2x 6970's in Crossfire and my tv's native resolution, 1900x1200 is not a selectable option. I have this ran through my Marantz AV7005 preamplifier via HDMI, where it then passes the video to my TV, and the sound signals to the Parasound 5250V2 amplifier.

I was able to make my icons bigger and easier to read etc.. and I was even able to get rid of the border by sliding overscan higher in 1920x1080... I however want to run at my tv's native 1900x1200 resolution.

I can't figure out for the life of me to make this a selectable setting it would not allow me to put it in manually either. I'm using the latest drivers.

I also tried running through pc directly to tv to see if that made any difference... it correctly identified the display but still won't let me select the native resolution 1900x1200 1080P

I solved this issue and am posting it here in case anyone else has the same problem. The resolution on the display was indeed 1920x1080. I was able to get rid of the border by setting the underscan in the catalyst control center to 0%. I was thinking that can't be the native resolution cause when I'd set it to 1920x1080 in some games, Crysis mainly. Alt Enter a couple times seemed to kick it into working just fine.
