this is correct, it willl use the smallest resolution of the two monitors, none the less, it will still show.

Interesting, on my PC I only found out I could duplicate when I hitched up two monitors with identical resolution and saw the duplicate option for the first time. I don't want to contradict your experience but do wonder whether it will always show in Windows or whether it depends on the graphics card etc.

Maybe for some reason, the graphics card does not support the tv's resolution.

Are you using some kind of dedicated software for your GPU?
i.e. nVidia control panel or catalyst control center?
