Resize HDTV Desktop problem
In Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 Beta the latest derivers won't let me resize my HDTV desktop. It is set to 1280x720 but the start button and clock are out of view so I need to set my resolution lower. In Vista I could do this with an older driver and after that I can upgrade to the latest driver.
I have a Nvidia 7300GT connected via DVI to a Philips 37PF9830 LCD tv.
This same problem still exist with the latest beta driver(s) for Windows 7 I need to set my resolution to 1208x684.
When I do resize HDTV desktop I change the sliders but after clicking on apply nothing happens and it hassen't remembered my settings.
Also when I install powerstrip the advanced timer settings are greyed out.
I have reported the problem to Nvidia and they are investigating this at Level 2 (for what that means) and they asked me to be patient which I'm not.
Anyone know what I can try?
thanks in advance.

I'm having the same problem with an integrated 7150 on a 630i Nforce motherboard.
In the Win 7 beta I could not use the WDDM 1.0 driver because it didn't fix a reboot issue during boot when the computer was hooked up to my HDTV. I was actually forced to use a Vista driver.
Some time a couple weeks ago, the WDDM 1.0 driver updated on its own and the reboot problem was gone so I left it.
Then I did a fresh install of the Win 7 RC1 the other day and the reboot issue was there again so long as I was connected to the HDTV. So I did the install using a monitor and it auto-updated to the WDDM 1.0 driver. I plugged back into the TV and things were ok except that the "Resize HDTV Desktop" sliders in the Nvidia control panel do not save/apply any changes and I'm currently stuck with the overscan.
I've tried removing the WDDM 1.0 driver and installing an older Vista driver (like I used with Win 7 beta), but the settings still don't stick.
Eagerly waiting for a solution.
