You are connecting via VGA? If your connectors permit, connect via DVI. My monitor also has HDMI. but won't work via a DVI-HDMI cable. I guess that is only for a video card that has an HDMI output. Another possibility is S-Video, if both the video card and HDTV are equipped with it.

Are all your drivers upto date? If they are then I would look at connections next to make sure none are loose. Then try using the fn + f8 key. If you still don't get a picture make sure t.v. is set to p.c or VGA. Then I would try changing the resolution options in Nvidia. Good luck.

I figured it out! It appears you have to switch the res from 60Hz to 74Hz or else it wont work on HD.....
