Hi, I have a sony 50 inch projection tv model number KDF-E50A10 when i connect my mini to the tv through the pc input on the back of the t it does not fill the screen i read in another post to use displayconfigx to change the resolution i messed with that until i changed the resolution to a resolution the tv can not display now i can not see anything and the tv was my only monitor any idea on how i can change it back second any ideas on what resolution to use to get it to fill screen do you think that using a dvi to hdmi cable would help i really don't know anything about this any help would be awesome thanks jason

I would be interested in this too. I have the exact TV that you mention, the Sony KDFE50A10. When you get it figured out post you results.

I plan on using a DVI to HDMI cable in my hookup. It would work perfect with my HD video input Switcher.

You can set the output to 720p using DisplayConfigX which should fill the screen properly, since it seems your tv supports 720p. Next time you set your screen res to an unsupported resolution, you should restart your computer in safe mode by holding down the shift key when booting up.
