I bought a Toshiba Regza 42" TV recently and i'm in the proccess of building my first HTPC. After installing Ubuntu 7.10, the login screen on the TV seems to cut of from the right side and the bottom. I tried to mess with the GUI settings without any results. I also tried:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
and reran it couple of times with multiple options. TV is 720P capable.

i looked into /etc/X11 but there are multiple config files. Some with unix time stamps and others are not and i don't which file Xorg is using:
family@UHTC:/etc/X11$ ls 
app-defaults             xorg.conf.1               xorg.conf.7
cursors                  xorg.conf.2               xorg.conf.8
default-display-manager  xorg.conf.20080219215705  xorg.conf.9
fonts                    xorg.conf.20080219231559  Xresources
rgb.txt                  xorg.conf.20080219232132  xserver
X                        xorg.conf.3               Xsession
xinit                    xorg.conf.4               Xsession.d
xkb                      xorg.conf.5               Xsession.options
xorg.conf                xorg.conf.6               Xwrapper.config
buttom line: i know nothing about xorg and i need a jumpstart ... any one can help?
