Thumbs down

Hi,
I am going to buy a Pioneer KURO KRP-A 600. I've got an HTPC whose graphic card is a Nvidia Geforce 9300, with HDMI output. I wonder... should I give it for sure so easily that

1) HDMI to HDMI will work
2) The TV will be able to display my HTPC output in full HD 1080p res

?

Thanks in advance,
Andrea

Both should work. I have a nVIDIA 7600 GS and another HTPC with a 8500 GT and they both work at 1080p. However that is at 60 Hz. I don't think your card will output the 24 Hz that would take full advantage of the 1080p/24.

Hello everyone, I have a quick question.

I have a Toshiba laptop w/ vga and svideo outputs. I bought a 32" hdtv w/ hdmi inputs and svideo inputs.

everything works fine when i hook the svideo to svideo, except of course the tv picture is fuzzy.

I bought a hdmi-dvi cable, and then a vga-dvi adapter. i hooked the vga adapter to my computer, the cable to the adapter and the hdmi end of the cable into the tv.

this is where i get lost. i have nothing at all show up on the tv. are there computer setting ill need to change to get this to work? some one please help me.

Default Computer won't detect tv

I'm trying to use my Westinghouse 32" LCD (SK32H5105) as a monitor for my Gateway desktop PC (GT5268e). The computer has a built in Intel graphics card with DVI-out, to which I have connected to the tv via DVI-HDMI cable. However, it does not appear that the computer is recognizing the tv; In graphics/display devices only my regular monitor shows up, not the TV. The tv does not say that there is no signal, there's just a blank screen (so apparently the tv recognizes its attached to the computer). I've updated all the drivers, BIOS information, changed the resolution to a supported res for the tv (1024x768 60hz)...nothing doing.

Is there anything I'm missing that could be causing this lack of communication...any way to force to computer to detect the tv?

Thanks for any help.

Hello zv47146. Welcome to the forum. Good questions about this hook-up. First, your LCD, according to Westinghouses' website is not SK32H5105. It should be instead SK32H510S. Now, this LCD bests resolution spits out 1080i instead of 1080p. That's fine enough. Secondly, I disected the specs and I didn't see the magic letters and words in the description of the monitor: HDCP Compliant. It should be HDCP compliant in my opinion. Secondly, you're treading on thin ice with a 1.8Ghz Dual Core processor on an Intel (Love Valley G) G965 Viiv Motherboard. You can put a Intel Pentium D 945 3.4Ghz Dual Core in it. Third, the on board video states that it is HDCP compliant, but most people don't use on board video unless the chipsets are Nvidia or ATI based anyway. You can purchase a good cheap NVidia say 9500GT for a little of nothing. Lastly, that power supply of 300w is tearing down that system as well. Just be careful with what you're doing here. I think it really is an HDCP issue with the 32" because the website clearly doesn't say it is HDCP compliant. The two have to work hand-in-hand. Good luck.

Default Thanks for the info

Wow, thorough research indeed...thank you kindly!

From what I had been able to find out, I was beginning to think it was an HDCP issue...but I wasn't quite sure how to verify that.

This really began as a what I'd hoped would be a simple project, I just happened to have an unused TV (the Westinghouse) and I thought "Hey, I'll hook it up to my computer". It has since turned out to be an aggravating process to say the least.

If I understand correctly, if its' a problem on the TV side (HDCP non-compliance), I'm out of the use-TV-as-a-computer-monitor business, right? But if its on the computer side of the house that's causing the problems, any suggestions on the most "recession-friendly" solution? I know the onboard video is not an ideal situation, but would add-in video card do anything to help this particular scenario?

The add-in video would not only increase your options (such as a card with component out which would take care of the HDCP problem) but also take some heat off the CPU.

I checked the specs on this set from the previous post and it shows your native resolution 1366x768 (which is essentially 720p). That figures with that size set (I have a Dynex with the same resolution). I'm using a VGA cable since I can't get my Nvidia card to fit the screen properly in Win 7 with component or HDMI, and your set shows a VGA input. Try that first and see how it works. You did get good advice from the last post about the PSU also.

One of your HDMI inputs should have a stereo audio connection. Might be 2 RCA jacks or a mini headphone type jack. Run your audio outputs from your sound card to those.

Pardon my ignorance but im not sure what you mean the hdmi input on the tv should have an audio connection.

Looks like the audio in is to the left of the HDMI 2 jack. Since it shows it will work for multiple HDMI inputs, I would guess there is a menu selection for the audio.

Question Streaming Video issues...

I have a Compaq Presario SR1520NX desktop connected via VGA to a HP MediaSmart HDTV. Everything works fine. No problems using the hdtv as a monitor. I can access the internet and open any site, watch youtube videos as well as small clips from websites like abc and fox. I can also watch dvd's using my PC as the player.

The problem I am having is watching streaming video from websites such as abc and fox. I have audio but the video portion is just colored lines across the screen. Can someone tell me what adjustment I need to make to allow the streaming video to work?

Thanks so much!
