I am trying to get my display working at 1080p instead of 1080i, I have no problem with this on my xbox or in windows 7 and I can sort of put together a solution that is already on this website. I am using a 23" 1080p HDTV as my monitor and my graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 6850. I am currently using the xorg drivers for it but from what I have tried it does not work in the proprietary drivers either.
I am aware that this question has already been answered here: no 1080p@60hz option with nvidia card, but there is one problem that I am having with the fix, it is that the file path to the xorg.conf file must have been moved as when I try to open it, it creates a new document. I would be thankful for the knowledge of where this file is or if I have to edit anything different.
Thanks in advance, Jack
