    Just before xmas I got a couple of cables to turn my desktop into a HTPC but I found out that my graphics card doesn't support scaling in the options.
    The options are there in the control panel they just don't work.
    The cable is a DVI-D to HDMI and the drivers pick it up as a HDMI cable connected to a TV.
    My laptop works a treat (8600M GT) but I don't want to use that.

    NVIDIA released a *fix* but it doesn't want to work to my TV, when I put it back to my monitor it works, and it also stripes HDCP from the signal which would end any plans to watch protected media via it.

    Is there a fix that I haven't found yet or can someone offer a solution that doesn't involve me buying a new graphics card?
