Using Powerstrip and an Intel graphics chip

Hi,
Has anyone any experience of getting Powerstrip to work with an Intel onboard
graphic chip. Trying to get my HTPC to display a widescreen 1280 * 720 or native 1366 * 768 but despite setting it in powerstrip it doesn't seem to take it. I'm don't think it's the LCD . Its a JVC32DS6 which from the box only supports 1024 * 768 but several have it running via VGA at widescreen resolutions but on cards like NVIDIA/ATI(using advanced timing). At the moment can't afford to upgrade to a off-board card so trying to get the Intel 82945G to go widescreen.

Any help is appreciated

thanks
Ronan

This cropped up before . Intels don't do very well with forcing custom resolutions.
You don't need anything fancy a 10quid Radeon VE can handle this resolution just fine.
On ebay you might even get it cheaper.
