Default Argh!

I almost had it, the higher resolutions still were fuzzy couldnt really figure out the refresh rates (damn i wish I could) but i got the 720x480 looking pretty crispy but need to learn more about overscan.

Would buying a brand spanking new ATI all in wonder x800xt resolve anything for me? or just get me a more expensive headache?


Thanks,

Mo

That Samsung is a 30" direct view tube type CRT. Due to the dot pitch of CRT shadow masks they will not make anywhere near the higher resolutions without the display being fuzzy. The best you can hope for is a good computer picture of about 960 x 540. Anything greater on that CRT will be fuzzy.

Overscan is in the TV not the computer. It will not be able to be fixed for your CRT set. That set will not make a computer monitor, if that is what you are going for. There are some CRT HDTVs that will work at 800x600, but that Sammy is not one of them.

Should be OK, hopefully the resolution is added automatically for you when you connect it. You may need PowerStrip to manually add 1360x768.

I have a question hooking my HTPC up to my HDTV. I currently have a Samsung DLP Rear Projection.

I would like to know before buying this if I would be able to connect coax from my digital cable box into the HTPC, and DVI out to my TV. And how would this work with my Digital Cable?

Default JVC LT-37 - video flickers using Media Center

I've tried to hook up my HP Media Center (Z553) to my JVC LT-37 using the dvi-hdmi cable.
The desktop comes up on TV for about 2seconds and then it starts to flicker every 2 seconds. I updated my (ATI x300) video drivers to catalyst 5.4 and tried the program PowerStrip, didn't work. I also tried different resolutions and made sure it was set to 60hz. Also, component to component worked, but I prefer dvi-hdmi to work (digital). Tried different Inputs on TV and made sure it was the only cable on that input, no good. Anybody have any ideas how to get it going without flickering or anybody hooked up their PC to a JVC?
Has it anything to do with the ´HDCP sync between the source and the TV?

Any workaround?

Thanks

On my computer I have an ATI X800XL card with both vga and dvi slots. My hdtv has an hdmi port as well. In my video cards settings on my computer it lets me select the option of 480p,720p, and 1080i specifically for hdtvs. I bought a dvi-hdmi cable and was wondering if this would do the trick to let me set up my computer to use the hdtv as a big screen computer moniter. Ive been hearing a lot about how you can damage your tv trying this so I wasnt sure if I was approaching this correctly

I have been waiting a long time to buy an HDTV screen that works very well for viewing HD television/movies and also works very well as a computer monitor for playing video games and also for surfing the internet (reading text). I realize there are some compromises - LCD is not as good as Plasma for tv/movies. But it looked as if I bought a true 1080P LCD display like the Westinghouse LVM-37W1 and also purchased a video card that outputs "true" 1080P - that this would work well. Am I wrong about this? I am a novice at this stuff and would like to avoid making a rather expensive mistake.....

You got it, btw most any modern video card has no problem outputting 1080p since most can drive resolutions even higher then that. 1920x1080 at 60hz is pretty much all you'd need to set. Just make sure the TV set you buy can accept 1080p input, a lot can't.

More VGA inputs support that rate than HDMI inputs... and make sure the display has some way to deal with the overscan/underscan issue.

I have mitsubishi WD-62525 DLP HDTV and im having trouble connecting my PC with an nvidia 7800GTX vid card to it. The vid car has 2 DVI-I output connectors. With a DVI-I to VGA adaptor ( included with card) i connect the card to the mini-D sub VGA connection on my HDTV. During bootup the PC displays on the HDTV but after windows boots i get " no signal" to the HDTV. Ive tried various timings and resolutions and still nothing. I did notice that windows detects my HDTV as 5 " deafult monitors" . The VIVO works fine through compnent , but the image isn't as good as the VGA input , from the few secs ive seen. ANybody have any ideas? I also have an LCD monitor connected , DVI-I to DVI-I , which works fine.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Usually Bdono this is an indication of your video card being reset to another refresh other than 60 Hz. It may be that your LCD monitor will tell you what the refresh is, or you can go to the display properties and check/set the refresh there. Many PC will boot up and switch the refresh to 75 Hz and that will not work for your TV.

I have my HDTV set at 60 Hz , well thats what it says anyway. I read another post where somebody had the same problem. He said he updated his board bios which fixed the problem. Could it be some kind of hardware conflict? Maybe its a driver issue since i know the HDTV works with default windows VGA drivers. Thanks for the reply , by the way, rbinck.

I was not talking about your HDTV. It is probably fixed at 60Hz. I was talking about the PC video card. In the Display Properties > Settings menu.

Everything is set at 60Hz on the computer side . I Just hooked up my PC to the HDMI port on my HDTV , using a DVI--HDMI adaptor. BINGO , works perfectly. Picture quality is good too. Its strange that the PC VGA input doesn't want to work. Anyways , im happy with the HDMI connection. Playing DVDs through this connection , and upscaling the output to 720p using the 7800 GTX vid card , gives an awsome near HD picture. Much better than my $225 panasonic S-97 DVD upscaling DVD player ever did. Thanks for the replies
