Yes, I attempted to locate a driver for the TV itself, but I failed to locate any drivers for any devices at Polaroid, so I don't know what the solution is...if any. Often a monitor driver will cause it to appear with the actual ID in the Device Manager and Nvidia Control Panel, and add more resolution options, which is what I had hoped would be the case here...apparently not.

Driver Detective...I have heard of it, but don't know why you raise the question now, because the link that I posted has nothing to do with it.

Ok, i just done some tests. It will recognize HDMI When the graphics card is disabled. Could it be the graphics card thats the problem?

It appears that you are being redirected somehow, because what I get is simply a page with a list of drivers for your TV, and when I selected the first one, the save dialog said nothing about Driver Detective. I would attach a driver to a post, but I'm not sure which one to do so with, because the version #s are jumbled.

EDIT: I'm not sure it is the best choice, but I picked the one with the highest version #, and attached it below. This is how it was labeled:

EDIT EDIT: Forget it, I now see what you mean. When I tried to extract the zip, it does have the Driver Detective in it. Apparently the page is a misrepresentation.
