No. Modern video cards have no trouble outputting interlaced content. My Sony runs at 1080i and that's what my Nvidia GT6600 puts out.

What is the reolution of the PC set at? The refresh rate MUST be at 60hz to match the display (AC power is 60hz)

PC resolution is 1920 x 1080. Running at 1080p output on the TV. The in-game resolution is also 1920 x 1080.

As far as refresh rate do you mean the ingame refresh rate or TV/PC refresh rate? I know the refresh rate in WoW is at 60hz currently, if it needs to be set at that anywhere else though I haven't investigated it.

Thanks for help :}

OK the problem for games is that an interlaced display is kinda wonky. Some games will play well, some not. I play only FPS games and because of this I run at 720p to play them. That gives you a non-interlaced solid 60 fps. Much better for action games.

Try the 540p setting for games.

Trying to prepare for my Panasonic 50" (50PX60U) plasma coming in a couple weeks. Since the format war seems far from over; HD DVD, Blue-ray, Mpg4, Divx/Xvid, etc. I'm thinking I might just try to use my computer as my DVD player until the dust settles and/or prices come down. I have some nice 720p Divx TV shows and some HD video podcasts that I would like to watch in addition to regular DVDs. Also, would running a 1080i picture be better than a 720p?

I have a P4 3.2 cpu, 2GB RAM, and BFG 6600 OC 256mb video card with vga & dvi outputs. I have a recent nvidia driver. Does anyone have a similar setup? I should be able to run my computer LCD monitor on vga @ 1280x1024 and run the Panasonic at 720p or 1080i from the dvi port to HDMI, correct? For audio I can just run a single to composite audio (R/L stereo) from the onboard sound card to R/L on the TV correct?

With the TV on will the video card auto detect it and set the right resolution? I'm thinking of using this setup just to watch movies, no gaming, no TV as a monitor stuff (at least for now).

Any info appreciated. Thanks!

Hi all, ive been racking my mind over this for about a month or two now..

Im basically trying to get a tv to use as a monitor for my pc for gaming (C&C3, battlefield 2142, warcraft3 etc).

my gaming righ has a BFG 8800 GTX OC card in it, with 2 X DVI-D output and what looks like an S-video output. I am planning on using a DVI-D to HDMI cable though.

The tv I am looking at is http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/...Tab=2&NoMapp=0 42inch LCD, or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sharp-LC37XD...5393804&sr=8-1 37". Obviously id like to go with the Vision TV, but cant find much info about them.. so sharp seems more reliable.

I really have not got much of a clue of what im looking at in terms of specs.. all i know is 1920 X 1080 is good, and the I is interlaced (??) and p is progressive.

I dont know if 1080i is better or worse than 1080p and i dont know what will work the best with my card.. so im still trying to find out more info.

could anyone throw me some advice on this please? from another post i found out that the card i got will be able to handle hd output nicely, just really want to know more about the tv part where it connects up.

Thanks much for help :)

PenGun 04-11-2007 07:05 PM

For games p is usually better. I can do 1080i but it's a solid 60 fps at 720p and that's better for action games.

I imagine 1080p would work fine.

The S-Video out on that card almost for sure is a hybrid. I have a component - S-Video breakout adapter that plugs into that on my GT6600.

Just got my Panny 50..60U this morning and am trying to connect my PC to it but am getting no picture. I have a 1280x1024 monitor on DVI and VGA -> component connected to the plasma. The nvidia drivers seem to recognize the TV as an analog display, the resolution is set for 1360x768, however I don't have anything on the screen. I've got the latest, 93.71 drivers, can anyone help with this? Did I miss a step?

It's setup in dualview mode right now. I ran the auto wizard and then changed the TV's resolution from 1280x720 to 1360x768.

Thanks.

Hey guys, been reading LOADS of threads on this and other forums, haven't really spotted a definitive answer to my query:

I have a Philips 32PF5321 HD ready LCD tv. On the net, native resolution is stated as 1366 x 768. For a HDMI PC Connection, though, the manual states that max resolution is 1024 x 768 at 60, 70 or 75 Hz. I want to hook this up to a PC I plan on buying (DVI to HDMI), so I presume that it'll initially only display at 1024 x 768. But if I use Powerstrip to select another resolution, will it display something fairly close to the native resolution of 1366 x 768 (ideally in proper widescreen) on my Philips LCD?

I would really really appreciate an answer to this...

Thanks guys!

Try getting MonInfo and see what it says. For more info see: Hooking Up A PC to A HDTV there are links in the article for MonInfo.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately though, I don't yet have a PC that has a DVI output, so I can't hook up my tv and run MonInfo. I'm hoping to figure out if my tv is suitable before I spend a lot of cash on a new HTPC!

I'll keep searching. Thanks!

sharp
 
I just bought a sharp aquos LC32D62U, I hooked it up to my Nvidia 6800 ultra. When I set my desktop resolution to 1920*1080 I get a lot of green pixles and lines. I have the 1080p model and I dont get this problem at the 720p resolution, I have no idea how to fix this, and I have the latest Nvidia drivers. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have an M8 series Samsung LCD TV, and am having trouble using the VGA PC input. When connected to a PC, the TV does not recognize the connection (hence it's not switchable to PC input in the "source" menu). I have tried two different PC's, and on both systems (each with two OS's, mind you) the TV was recognized (although as a generic screen with no bells and whistles), so it's probably not the PC hardware. Any suggestions?

Dell Laltop to Vizio LCD HDTV
 
I'm new to these forums, but I was wondering if anyone knew the best (and cheapest) way to connect the two. I know its supposed to be tricky, but I basically intend to use the tv as my regular monitor.
Thanks
