Edit: Upon further experimentation - it seems like the HDMI works perfectly going out to my Asus 21" monitor. I think there is just a problem with it detecting my LGTV as a monitor.

I am trying to get Centos 6.5 with my Geforce 460 card working. I have been able to install both the nvidia official driver, and the kmod-nvidia driver successfully. The problem is that when I startx, Everything is BIG. The resoultion says it is set at 1920x1280, however, I think the problem is under System->Display, it shows the monitor as "GOldstart Company Ltd, 7" "

So I think the problem is that the resolution is fine, but X can't detect that my monitor is actually a 47" LG TV, hooked up with an HDMI cable.

The above is the tail of my Xorg log. Is there some way for me to force detection of the right monitor?

Thanks
