Yea, I've messed around with that, but it still looks funky. I have it set to 1920x1080. I've gone up and down. The lower res look decent, but the higher res text is garbled. 1080p video on it is absolutely amazing though.

Could be a problem with the DVI cable perhaps. Seems suspicious that lower res is fine, do you have another dual link DVI cable to test with?
Tried both inputs on the card? Haven't checked any specs for your card, so not sure what it actually has. As long as it has dual link DVI, it should be fine from all I've read in the past few months.

I'm just throwing out some guesses mostly. biggrin.gif

- Using two different dual-link DVI cables, one of which came with my monitor (both work on my old monitor).
- Using different ports on my graphics card.
- Selecting the screen resolution in control on my 1080p monitor and moving my mouse over the "detect" button, unplugging the 1080p monitor and plugging the cable into the Catleap and pushing "detect."
- Doing the same thing as above but using the Nvidia control panel.
- Rebooting with my monitor on and my monitor off.
- Plugging an HDMI adapter into the Catleap and running video with an HDMI cable.
- Loosening the screws in the bottom of the Catleap's base. I read somewhere that it may work...
Any other suggestions? I thought this would be a simple plug-and-play but that doesn't seem to be the case. Thanks!

 

If you have the regular version, not the multi input, then HDMI will not work since this has no scalar.  

 

First test - connect it to another computer system if you have access OR if you have access to another GPU - try the other GPU (I don't think it is the card).  I have run all my Cats on some pretty low level cards without issue (and have run them all on a single 560 card and 560s in SLI.)

 

Solid green means signal so if you don't get an image on another computer or with another GPU, then you have two choices:  return it or open it up.

 

You could have the DVI PCB signal wire issue where it isn't seated properly in the panel PCB (if you open it you will see how the panel PCB can get disconnected or not be properly attached at the factory.)

 

Report back.

Sounds like a single-link output or cable. Are you certain you're using the cable supplied with the Catleap and the dual-link port on the GPU?

I'm assuming this would be a great replacement?
http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604
or a XFX Double D HD-695X-CDFC Radeon HD 6950 or XFX FX-785A-CNFC Radeon HD 7850.
Thoughts??
My CPU is an i7 920 and 8 GB

 

Unless you want to use this as an excuse to update your card - I would go to your manufacturer's website and check the card's specs.  Can it push 2560 x 1440?  If not then you have your answer.

 

If you want another card - that is all subjective IMO.  I would go nVidia, but I am an unabashed nVidia fanboy  I don't care who knows it.  After everything green has done for the Cat 120hz OC community over the past six months I am a customer for life for sure.  AMD is doing better, but still lags a bit.

 

Your CPU and memory is great for gaming still.  Rock on!

Every "break it" test I have done with a single link DVI shows the desktop in four blocks like x x - although I do my break tests on a crappy GTS 250 GPU.

                                                                                                                           x x

 

Although now that I think about it it would make sense for different cards to respond to a single link DVI to the dual link connection differently - so I will shut up now.

No, that makes sense. I tried it with the single-link cable from my old monitor and it filled the screen but text looked all pixelated, blocky as kablam0r described it.

When I put a single link in to mine, it's just a blank lit up screen.

HOLY CRAP, I switched cables and the picture is now AWESOME! Thanks RollOver.

Only complaints are the stand sucks ballz and there's a slight buzzing from the monitor itself. I'm pulling the stand for a mount tomorrow.

thanks again guys!
