Samsung LN-T3253H TV no longer displays computer's HDMI 1080p (19201080) resolution
 
My Samsung LN-T3253H TV no longer displays video sent from my laptop's HDMI port at 1080p (19201080) resolution. It used to work, but sound didn't; now that sound through HDMI works, the 19201080 resolution doesn't. I tried this a few times
Code:

$ cvt 1920 1080
$ xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
$ xrandr --addmode HDMI-0 "1920x1080_60.00"
$ xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode "1920x1080_60.00"

, but sometimes it tried changing my laptop's screen to 1080p, cropping it, not changing the HDMI TV's resolution. When it tries to change the TV, the TV just says "Not Supported Mode", when before 19201080 showed up as a resolution without my even having to add it manually with xrandr.

I really wonder why it worked before, especially since the TV's manual says the max resolution is 1360768.

Also, I'm currently using KDE 4.9.4, but previously, when I got it to work, I think I was using KDE 4.8.

Perhaps it was scaling it before? Although 1280720, the highest resolution the display system settings in KDE gives me, doesn't look nearly as sharp as 19201080 when 19201080 worked.

Thanks

UPDATE: I was able to get the extra resolution, 1360768, by plugging into the 1st (not 3rd) HDMI port on the TV, so it certainly can display higher than 1280720 resolution, and Phonon's audio still works, too, but running the above still made the TV display the "Not Supported Mode" error.

Can you post the output of 'xrandr --prop' when the HDMI cable is plugged in, it should list all supported modes and options there.

What about the refresh rate? The horizontal frequenc is often the limiting factor here. at 1920x1080@60hz refresh, the horizontal frequency is under 65,000, But at 1920x1080"75khz, you need a horizontal rate of over 80Khz. Set for 1920x1080@60hz.

That's what I tried.

Better try what H_TeXMeX_H suggested then.

Well, as you can see from that output the highest supported resolution is 1360x768 at 60 Hz.

You should check the manual and see if it can do more than 60 Hz, if it can't then you just can't get that resolution safely.
