Need to stop gaming @ 1804x1004, need monitor! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Wow, I never heard of LCD panel with no way to fix overscan.

Have your thoroughly checked all your tvs menu with the remote. The option to turn off overscan on my tv was quite well hidden.

If you have to buy replacement, make sure its LED backlit.

Have you tried calling samsung for ****s and giggles. Maybe there is some secret way to turn off overscan.

Analogue should have the same quality signal as digital unless you've got the cable going half way round the house through the skirting boards, otherwise you just have a massively faulty wire or woefully insufficient shielding.

I have a sound system, and my hdmi goes from the audio receiver to the back of my card via DVI adapter. I tried using the vga to dvi adapter and pluggin my vga cable to it, i can clearly see the difference. VGA is soft and not sharp, through Hdmi is crystal clear, words are super sharp, they stand out almost

My model tv came out in 2006, so it did not have this feature built it, although there was a firmware update in 2007 which enabled "fit to screen" feature on these models. I did not know that a the time. I found out recently trying to fix the darn issue. Went to Samsung website and looked under firmawares for my model TV, none were there. I even called customer support, and they don't even have that firmware anymore.

You would think they would have an archive of firmwares.

So to answer your question simply.... yes.. there is absolutely no way for me to fix the issue.
