The output of xrandr is attached (not sure if that works or not). Every single resolution fails to work. As I drop down to about 640x480 it *almost* displays enough to be workable, but at that resolution on a 41.6" display is really not going to work. There were about 4 resolutions (with the KDE Hardware settings) which actually worked.
No, there is no VGA input on the TV. The video card is already using VGA, and I don't believe that monitor actually has any other alternative anyway. Thank you for your help.
