Windows 7: Blurry Text problem, EDID and registry editing problem on an AMD card.

Blurry Text problem, EDID and registry editing problem on an AMD card.

EDIT:I have found a solution, using a DVI to HDMI cable on an amd card will fix this problem, this thread can now die, hopefully someone else will find it if they have this problem.

Basically, i know what the problem is, but not how to rectify it. My tv (Sceptre X235BV-FHD, a rebranded sony bravia)suffers from an EDID mismatch issue or chroma subsampling due to some form of post processing done on my tv, i'm not sure which but either way the results are the same, my colors are inaccurate, text is blurry and it's painful on my already unhealthy eyes, in HDMI at least, vga is normal.

That said, i know how to fix it on nvidia cards, i used the method posted in this tutorial to disable audio over hdmi:
Cropped, off-center display at native 1900x1200 resolution on LG245WP and/or LG246WP monitors with recent NVIDIA drivers

The problem is, i recently upgraded to an amd card, and while i tried to use the pixel format to fix this, the amd drivers do not fix it, not only that but the registry edit to disable audio over hdmi that i used on nvidia cards no longer works(basically, if it sends audio over hdmi it causes my tv to think it's looking at a cable box or game system, not my pc), or the registry entry i need to input is different, or in a different location.
I have heard that i can permanently disable audio over hdmi through editing the EDID with this tutorial:
Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

However, i do not know what i must do to edit the EDID to permanently disable audio over HDMI, nor do i know how to edit either the drivers or the registry to disable it like i could on my old nvidia card.
I am sorry for the long post, as well as posting such a topic, but i am at the end of my rope on this.
Any help is much appreciated.

You should put your note: "I have found a solution, using a DVI to HDMI cable on an amd card will fix this problem, this thread can now die, hopefully someone else will find it if they have this problem." At the top followed by a space. I had to read it all to discover that.

Took care of that, it was due to a scripting issue in my browser that i recently fixed, it should have separated paragraphs now.
Sorry about that.
