    I plugged my iBook G4 ~1.44GHZ into my Olevia 32" HDTV and got mirroring. Ran Screenspanningdoctor and got screen spanning, and it recognized the 1360 X 768 resolution beautifully. This worked for a week or more.

    I unplugged the iBook and plugged in a G4 tower to test. That didn't display at 1360 X 768, but would do screen spanning.

    I plugged the TV back into iBook and the iBook spans still, but will no longer recognize the 1360 X 768 resolution that fills the wide screen on the TV!

    I tried Screenspanningdoctor again. I tried clicking the button to discover monitors in the control panel. I tried SwitchResX, but could not get 1360 X 768 with that. I tried disconnecting the TV and adapter, rebooting iBook, turning on TV, turning both off, reconnecting, turning on, rebooting - no luck.

    Can I get 1360 X 768 back?
