HDMI is choppy, and has scan-lines?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I decided to run my PC through my Dynex 32" HDTV today. The tv is 720P, with a native resolution of 1360 x 768, i believe.

I went ahead and changed the resolution to 1680X1050, and then used the nvidia "size and scaling" tools to resize the screen to fit. All my text is choppy, and it looks like there are scan-lines in my text. It does this on native resolution, or 1680x1050.

I am using a dvi to hdmi adapter on my video card. Could this be it? I wouldn't think so.

I heard something about how there are certain settings you have to change when you switch to using a tv as a monitor. I tried to use the VGA port via a VGA to DVI adapter, but it didnt even work, so I just stuck with the HDMI.

Unplug and plug it back also reseat the card and make sure the HDTV refresh rate is set correctly. If that doesn't fix it, connected with HDVT, uninstall Forceware and reinstall.
