I have just such the card and a SVA HD LCD model VR-30. I cant seem to get it to work at any resoution. The TV can handel 480p 720p and 1080i. No matter what I set it to I get "720*480/60hz out of range". I have been pulling my hair out. I have he dual monitoer set and my VGA monitor is working fine. Any help will be great and may save me the wrath of my wife whom I had to talk into sending $140 to get this video card for this exact purpose.

hi everyone. well this is my first time posting on this forum. recently i just bought the daewoo dlp2612 lcd hdtv. not a famous brand i think for an lcd tv. right now i connect my lcd tv to my pc using a dvi cable. i am using nvidia 6600gt agp which should work fine with hdtv.but the problem is, when i set the resolution on my pc to 1080i, i will get out of range on my tv. in the manual of the tv, it was mentioned that the tv is capable of receiving up to 1080i. i managed to get everything to work at 720p, but the again the actual resolution is not 1280x720.this might be because i set the graphic card to underscan.also the native resolution of the tv is 1368x768 but i will get split screen when i set the resolution to 1360x768.have contact daewoo and they said is has something to do with the graphic card.can someone help me?

Virtually all TVs only work at 60 Hz refresh. Make sure you LOCK your refresh to that rate & don't leave it at 'optimal'.

I got a 52" RCA Projecter tv and I'm trying to hook my PC up to it. I got a 6800GT video card with vga, dvi, and svideo. The svideo works, but looks absolutely horrible so I bought a dvi to dvi cable. I can not get it to work at all, nothing shows on the tv when I switch to it. Need help.

Most likely you have a refresh problem. You should start setting your resolution in the computer to 640x480 at 60hz refresh and work up from there. Be sure to lock your refresh to 60hz. Also set your driver to send the video to both your monitor and the TV while getting set up.

Also you can run the Moninfo to find out what resolutions your TV will accept. See: Hooking Up A PC to A HDTV for more info and links to get the moninfo software.

Could it be the cable? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812189048

That cable is fine. Most likely it is your video card settings. here are the resolutions your TV will support:

Standard timings supported
640 x 480 at 60Hz - IBM VGA
720 x 480 at 60Hz - TTE
1920 x 540 at 60Hz - TTE
1920 x 1080 at 30Hz - TTE

That is directly from the moninfo you posted. I'd guess you have your video card set to 1024x768 at optimum refresh, which could be setting the card to 75hz. The 1920x1080 at 30Hz also has to be set to interlace and it will look terrible on your HDTV, so I would forget that.

Now it may be that your card will not have the 1920x540 at 60Hz setting available because it is a weird resolution and will produce a really distorted picture. It may be your set will do 960x540p at 60Hz, mine does even though it also is not listed in my moninfo report, and it does a pretty good job.

hook up and try the 640x480 at 60hz to get the TV working. Then move up in the resolutions to see what else will work. Just about every TV will work at 640x480, so it is always a good starting point to establish connection.

Seems like you have two threads working this problem. Pick one and stay with it.

Nothing comes up on the tv at all with any resolution/refresh rate combination.

Default Video quality

Does anyone really have real great resolution on their HDTV from the PC? I am running my Windows XP desktop signal throuth a Sapphire 512mb x1300 PCI-X video card using the Sapphire (same as the ATI) DVI to YPbPr adaptor. I have the toggle switches set to 1080i and 16X9 and the signal is going to my 34" Philips tube type HDTV. The desktop is set to 800x600 resolution so that the text will be large enough to be readable. Even with that much of the text in settings menus is illegible.

I do realize that even an HDTV does not have the resolution that a monitor has, but the desktop really looks like crap. Is there something that I'm doing wrong or is this as good as it will get?

I am not running any display software other than the latest ATI Catalyst drivers.

Other than display clarity I'm having no troubles. No overscan or underscan.

Thanks,

Mark

I have a Panasonic TH42PV60 (2xHDMI, 1xVGA). And want to connect it to my computer (7800GTX 2xDVI). But what would you recommend to use, a VGA/DVI cable or a DVI/HDMI? Im mostly gonna demo some HD-material through my comp. So I want the best possible picture.

Atm I have a 5m VGA/DVI cable, but tbh I think the pic is not good at all. And not even better then the pic from dvd movies played on my old Pioneer DV-525 (Scart RGB).

Hi,

If you go to the HTPC section of AVS Forum you will find a file from KARNIS which I printed out 4 yrs go and still refer to.

The video cards and tv's may have changed but a combination of your vid cards UI Powerstrip from www.entechtaiwan.com and a little work you can fit rezes from PC to TV that will be ultra crisp.

The caveat is (particularly for CRT tvs) do all of the work on you PC's monitor before trying it on your TV. It can be tough on convergence for one thing.

Default Want to connect my PC to TV Please Help

I do not know much about TVs and I need some help. I have a LCD HDTV it is a JVC model LT-37X776. In the user's guide it states that the HDMI input of the TV in not compatible with a computer. I have a DVI to HDMI cable. I have heard that if you do not have the proper resolution on your PC then it can damage your TV. I would like to connect my computer to my TV but I do not want to damage my TV. Where can I get the right settings for my PC so that it will not damage my TV? Also is there another way that I can connect them and it will not damage my TV for sure? Is there anyway that the text will be readable with any option?
