Pls Help Catalyst, 6970Xfire setup 1900x1200 not selectable resolution

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 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.
