When connecting my TV over HDMI, it shows up in display settings and xrandr:

Aspire1825PTZ:~$  lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

Aspire1825PTZ:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 256mm x 144mm

HDMI2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

However, the resolution is way too low and the screen remains black. Everything works fine in Windows, but I'd rather not reboot just to watch a film.

Could anyone help me please?
