How change resolution for use through TV. Ubuntu O/S

\015 How can I change the resolution to allow me do use tv display without getting "out of range" message. It uses ubantu operating system. Thank you.\015

Answers :

You should set the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. This will give you a picture. Once you have a picture on your TV you can then set it to the native resolution of your TV. i.e. 720p will be 1280 x 720 or 1368 x 768. 1080p will be 1920 x 1080.
