I have my computer hooked up to my HD-TV via HDMI.
If I set my resolution to the reccomended native resolution (1920 or 1960 by something) it cuts off edges of my screen. I use the Nvidia resizer tool in the control panel to manually make it fit, and my actual resolution ends up being something like 1820xWhatever.
My TV is huge, and I sit back on my couch. Some games (mainly Dragon Age) have lots of text/detail that is hard to see that far away with 1800+ resolutions. I thought a good solution would be to run the game in a lower res (1400's or 1600's) which would do the trick. TV cuts off the edges of other resolutions, and can't go below a certain resolution or it becomes incompatible.
So basically I'm looking for a solution to run a default resolution that is not a custom scaled resolution.
