What do you mean "can't work with this tv"?

Re: philips 42" plasma conect tolatitude x1

I also have a Latitude X1 and want to connect it to a TV so I can watch DVDs and stuff on a bigger screen, I have a VGA to Composite / S-Video converter so i can plug it into the TV, but the software will not let me select 800x600x50hz output, the lowest is 60hz, I have used a desktop at this resolution before to output to a television, through this adapter. There is also no option to say the output device is a TV, I have tried telling the device manager to install a TV for the driver on the secondary monitor but this makes no difference. From what I have read on the Intel site the chipset is perfectly capable of performing this function. (see http://www.intel.com/technology/itj/2005/volume09issue01/art03_hiperf_graphics/p05_tvout.htm).

It is a cool laptop and it would be nice to be able to watch DVD and play games on the big screen when I am round my friends' house without having to buy some sort of VGA to TV converter.

Any ideas??

Unfortunately I have not been able to find any other information regarding this issue whatsoever, they have updated the graphics driver since I last posted, but there are not many changes.
 
Please post here if anyone has any ideas or solutions

The modes presented when through the VGA connector are limited by the display's EDID.  Odds are that the EDID for VGA connector on that display doesn't include anything more than 10x7
