I got a 720p TV to display 1080p - Page 2

I don't see the benefit of installing a panel with 1080p worth of pixels and setting the maximum resolution to 720p (1080p panels are more expensive). So it's not likely that the panel has 1080p worth of pixels. Which would mean it can never display true 1080p.

Of course.

But there's still the practical benefit of not forcing my monitor to resize to 720p, or else have to fool around with an extended display.

Two of my TVs do the same thing. Granted it looks fuzzier than 720p, but it still tries to display it in 1080p.

I tried doing this purposely to see if i could get my monitor to display in 1440p before, i got it to work but it was simmilar to what you described, really jittery and stuff (but much worse, i couldn't read any text)
Also, be warned you can permanently dammage your display/monitor by doing this.

Nice video. I spied a N64 and SNES thumb.gif
Anywhoo, my when my 720P sets go into 1080P I can't read text on them either.
Blurry and jittery. I can't really understand Sony advertising this capability on my Bravia when
it looks god awful.

My "TV" will display any resolution I feed it. What's the big deal?
APU what?

I fail to see what you hope to accomplish.

Are you trying to watch a 1080p movie that doesn't support 720p or something?

I could force my monitor to display 1440p but I would rather have the crystal clear image at 1080p that it was designed to display. I once forced a 900p monitor to display at 1600p but I had the same effect you describe, only much worse.


Edit: Nevermind, I think I get it after watching your video. Why not just extend the desktop and set the proper resolution for each display? Then you can have the 1080p on your second display without changing the 720p on your primary display.

I'm currently using two monitors like that. One is 16:9 the other is 16:10. It takes all of 30 seconds to set it up. Then get a wireless mouse to use like a remote control. wink.gif

Well I wasn't trying to accomplish anything. It happened by accident. See, my goal is to use my PC as a CD/FLAC player. Not to use it for anything like browsing or gaming. So I just set up my playlist, hit shuffle, then relax on the couch and read. Or whatever.

The problem is that since I'm using HDMI to connect to the receiver, and there's an HDMI going from the receiver to the TV, the PC detects the TV and registers it as a second monitor.

In extend display mode this creates the problem that my mouse can go off the side of the screen, which is really irritating, especially in certain full-screen games that don't handle multiple monitors very well.

In duplicate display mode the TV's default 720p resolution will force both screens to 720p, which is obviously bad.

By tricking the TV into accepting 1080p input I can use duplicate display mode at my monitor's native resolution, and also avoid going off the side of the screen. I'll avoid degradation or damage to my TV by just never letting it run in this mode for any length of time.

Thus allowing me to experience Imogen Heap in wonderful lossless format in my living room, AND have a good PC experience. Without having to spend additional money on hardware or cables.
