Hi Mike,

I'm at work right now, so I can't provide you with much information
from my xorg.conf (although I think it is attached to one of the bug
reports I've filed).  I had very little problem though getting my
P5E-VM HDMI hooked up to both a Vizio 1080p LCD and a Panasonic 1080p
Plasma via HDMI.  The biggest difference is that in a later email you
mention your modes and none of them are 1080P 60hz which both of my
TVs are able to display.  I do have to have the HDMI plugged in during
bootup in order to get anything on it.  And I did have problems with
earlier versions of the Intel driver where I would get hard locking.
Now if I have my HDMI plugged into the board, and into the TV (the TV
doesn't have to be on the HDMI input) then it works, and looks
beautiful.  I'm using the 45nm 3Ghz Core2Duo as my CPU which I assume
helps reduce any visual problems by compensating for other issues.

Good luck!
