Can anyone work this out?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Have no idea what's going on here:

The tv didn't cost me anything so meh whatever.

However,

I find this extremely strange;

Scenario 1
Using Dvi to Hdmi cable, not able to get proper recommended resolution
1080p - Windows text insanely blurry, have to resize the desktop, you name it.

Have tried to over ride EDID manually, you guessed it, same.

Scenario 2

Mini HDMI to HDMI cable to HDMI input, black picture, invalid format message.
Tried dropping the res. Same outcome.

Scenario 3

Dvi to vga to vga, Pc Mode on tv
1920x1080 60Hz Crystal clear picture.

Now, should the vga be displaying 1080p in the first place, In Nvidia control panel shows as recommended but shows also as analog?

Tv has option for 100Hz enhance,

Another major confusion is it will not let me pick more then 60hz but when tried a specific game that allowed me to pick between HDTV and LCD it did let me pick 100hz choosing the first option (Call of Juarez Bound in Blood)

Basicaly Am I running digital but showing up as Analog and is there any way to force the 100Hz or use HDMI

Tv is some weird brand

Bauhn 32"

Be interesting to see if someone can work this one out or explain it to me as I'm quite puzzled. Not really sure about power strip and how it works, but would this be a direction to look at next also?

Thanks guys

This exact same this happened to me.... except I was using hdmi to dvi-d through a mini hdmi adapter. It's a cable issue.

Just try and make sure both ends of the cable are for the same input/output (e.g. dvi-d to dvi-d or vga to vga). I've had nothing but bad experience with those weird cables.

Scenario 1 is due to a nVidia issue with HDTV's

Scenario 2 I have no idea

Scenario 3 If this works, whats the problem? Picture quality will be the same between VGA and HDMI anyway (theyre outputing the same image, just with different methods)

Is your videocard's output format NTSC or PAL. I just wrote a huge response until I realized your info says you're in Melbourne. Your card might be NTSC format (60/ 120/ 240hz) and your TV (obviously PAL 50/ 100/ 200hz). The only reason that 60hz worked via VGA is because of the analog format. If I'm right, then it would explain why they won't match.

Check and let me know, you may have to use analog video.

Very weird indeed. I just went off with cables I had laying around basically.
As I said the tv didn't cost a thing so meh, just wanted to see if the picture could be better, that's all.

I thought nvidia fixed the issues in 275.33 drivers...
It does work but I just wanted to make sure I was getting the best picture possible.

I am in Melbourne, Australia.

I have no idea about the output and very little experience with tv's.

This is my card though;

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N560G...ozr-II-OC.html

As I stated previously the actual tv is some weird weird brand and very little info on it

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1256156

The very first google hit with obviously dead links

I mean I don't mind using it as is, just wanted to clarify I was getting the best possible picture.

I have a spare DVI to D-Sub which I had to use on 42" Panasonic in the living room and every time i tried to use that it was just horrible looking.
After a fair bit of research it lead me to believe it was due to no 1:1 pixel mapping.

Before buying a hdmi to hdmi cable as I was now able to use it due to receiving a mini hdmi dongle with my new card, I borrowed a hdmi to hdmi cable from a friend to test it out.

As I said though, the only thing that would display was Invalid picture and black screen.

The only way I was able to get this to work was by using a DVI to D-Sub adapptor and old vga cable I had laying around which then I hooked up via
PC-RGB on tv.

The downside to this is basically that you can't change colour, sharpness or tint. Nvidia control panel is able to do a similar task but I can never seem to get the 'fine' results.

Here's a thread I came accross.

It also seems to be using EDID for the 42" model for no apparent reason.
