Hello,

So my new Polaroid TV just shipped in today, here's a link
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1CZ1F74670
And the issue I am having is when i hook up my gpu to the tv, It only outputs to 1280x1024. I went into the display setting and thought this couldn't be right. So I launched msi Afterburner and found that my GPU usage is hitting 100 and then back down to 0, sometimes staying on 0, sometimes staying on 100. The CPU usage for all core is well under 100. I tried switching the HDMI cords I was using but no difference, the one im using now is an AmazonBasics High Speed with ethernet. here's my specs

AMD A10-5700 APU
Gigabyte F2A78M-D3H
Hynix 2x4GB of ddr3 Ram (ram usage was also well under 100)
2 TB seagate Barracuda HDD
Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 TI FTW from EVGA
Windows 8.1

If I put this under the wrong category, sorry about that

I have a similar card (made by Gigabyte) - the card may not be communicating with the monitor properly. What display type is showing for the monitor? Can you change it to a Polaroid display or other type to enable 1080?

I just checked my bedroom TV - it is a 720p TV, and the card reports that the TV is 1280 X 1024 by the card - I forced it to a custom resolution for 720P and it displays fine that way.
