Default PCI Express 16?

I have a GeForce 6600 PCI Express x16 video card with both a DVI and VGA connection.

I have it hooked to a 26" LCD HDTV and according to the manual the max rez for the monitor is 1280x1024 so my question is as far as pc use such as gaming is it unsafe to go above that?

Regards

It's not unsafe if the display syncs.

Make sure your refresh rate is locked to 60 Hz... most TV's don't accept anything else.

Ghost, I put up an answer to your other question on the other thread, heres the solution again.


Yeah, that's the right cable. It is possible the cable is faulty, a slight chance you got a dead cable.

Did you set your resolution to you LCD native resolution??

Did you change the pc resolution to 60hz?

Check to make sure your DVI port on your video card is set to the primary display. For example, the VGA port on my video card is the primary display, the DVI is the secondary, and the s-video is the third.
To change this:
1. Right click anywhere on desktop, click properties in order to acces your display properties.
2. go to settings tab.
3. In the window click on one of the other desktops, the one that corresponds with your DVI port,
4. Once done, there should be a box to check, "make this my new primary display"

Hopefully that should do it.

Default Problem connecting to JVC D-ILA HD-756RX5 56" set

This is the PAL version of one of the JVC D-ILA sets.

Using a Nvidia N6200 card I have tried to connect the card via DVI to the HDMI port on the TV (with an adapter of course.

I have tried feeding in a number of resolution starting with 640x480 and up to 1920x1080. The TV displays 480p for the first and 1080i for the second and then nothing. Not sure why I can't see any image on the screen.

Looks like it should work based on moninfo

Any ideas of what else I should try?

Thanks

I can get MonInfo tonight when I get home, but here is where I am at:

DELL XPS400 with ATI Radeon X300SE connected to LG 37LC2D via DVI (Single Link) cable and a DVI to HDMI plug. Also have a 15" LCD temporarily hooked up via the VGA port (on the X300) for playing with PowerStrip. If it matters, I am also using the X300's SVideo to connect to my reciever.

When I set the PC to 1280x720 I see the same overscan issue as you would expect.

Now here is my problem. When I change things in Powerstrip, only the 15" monitor is affected. No matter what I do for trying to change the size or position, the TV does not change a pixel unless I go too far and then it says the settings are invalid.

I did notice that Powerstrip seemed to report the VGA LCD as the monitor, so I unplugged it and rebooted. Powerstrip then reported the LG 37LC2D as the monitor, but still would not change anything, other than to go black if I went too far.

What am I doing wrong?

My guess, and it only is a guess at this point, the TV could be rescaling the video automatically on the video input. I'd suggest trying the VGA port on the display and see what you get. That port should not add overscan.

Question Samsong LNS 40ND HDTV to my PC

I just purchased the TV and would like to watch HDTV through my Gateway 21" monitor. My FX510X computer has a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 with 128 mb, DVI. VGA and TV out.

I'm a senior who grew up before computers and frankly don't have a clue what I just wrote. However I do want to get my fill of HD sports etc on both sets before..........

I also am thinking of signing up with Dish and leasing their 622. I'm seeing stuff like super dish, 500. 61.50, locals etc Any and all suggestions would sure be appreciated. My zip is 92536.

I am looking into hooking up my pc to my hdtv as well...

I'm a computer tech on the side so don't mind throwing jargon my way

XP sp1
barton 2500+
asus a7n8x-e dlxrev2
1 gig corsair xms @5-2-2-2
ATi 9700 pro 128
etc

I realise my hdtv is crt...though I do fair it will be acceptable being an sfp tube model

I own a KD-36XS955 (brother/sister to the KD-34XBR960)
I went with the 36xs955 because I gained 9 inches in 4:3 content over the 960, and only lost 1 inch in widescreen...pip and firewire were worthless to me and not worth $800 more. Anyway, I don't have the exact hori res on hand(and I know it isn't really pixel count related, but red to red strip)...but iirc the estimated "res"across for sfp tubes was 1440ish...now to stop rambling.

My choices are a dvi-i male to hdmi male cable(monoprice ftw) or the ati dvi-i to component converter + component cables. I'd liek ot know which would be a better choice?

I do know the ati converter has dip switches on it...I assume to set resolutions. Going this route I would guess this setup would not allow you to change resolutions/custom in the catalyst control panel or powerstrip

The dvi-i to hdmi route would require me to fiddle with the resolution setups in powerstrip/control panel though I wouldn't mind more control myself. I am just wondering which does a better job? does the dvi-component converter have some sort of overscan help considering it probably tells the drivers to output specific hdtv resolutions? All I know about it is that "later" ati catalyst drivers have support for it.

Ideally I'd prefer the more control and using the hdmi(as it's unused right now) ... but if the converter does a better, simpler job without problems(i.e. I could fix stretch/res issues using hdmi/powerstrip/control panel .... but i'm assuming I can't do any of the sort with the ati converter..) then I'd be willing to go that route for the sake of less trouble.

any helpful hints or suggestions?

btw I'll be using it for light desktop viewing (messageboards mostly), watching my fansubbed anime, and playing EverQuest.

Question Mac Mini (PPC) and RCA Scenium 50"

I have a Mac Mini (PPC; built-in ATI Radeon 8500) and a RCA Scenium 50" HDTV (w/DVI input). I've read that the Sceniums only support 720p in Component mode, and I'm wondering if the ATI DVI-to-HDTV dongle will work with my Mac.

(I have a program that's the Mac equivalent to Powerstrip, so I can enter "modelines" just fine. Haven't been able to get 720p to work in DVI mode recently, though it worked for about two months back when I first bought the set and the computer, albeit with quite a bit of overscan)

Anyone have any experience in this regard? There was a post from a long time ago in this thread that asked the same kind of question, but it wasn't answered definitively...

I have an iMAC and am happy as heck that we finally tried Apple out, are just waiting for Uncle Sams refund to replace the other three computers in the home.

Have you posted this question on the Apple.com suppport forum for MacMini users. I have received great help from expert Mac users there.

Do not want to get into computers here but some have said the Mini makes a really good "Media Center" machine, is that your experience?

Hey I succesfully connected my Fujitsu siemens amilo Xa 1526 17" laptop to my Phillips HDTV fully 1080i compatible and it works screen shows up amazing and all

only thing is, I have a HD movie on my HDD its coded in 720p
so I set my screen of TV to 720p and open the movie in WMP11
The video shown, is out of sync with the audio, mainly because the video o n tv is going is sort of a slow motion.
The movie itself plays wonderful on my laptop screen.

how can I get around this or is that impossible?
