Is there anyway to convert an 120hz signal to 60hz?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there?

My reason is I want to play at 5760x1080 at 120hz, while using hardware to record soley the middle screen so I will be splitting the middle screens signal with a dual link dvi splitter, but then I am not sure if is possible to convert this some how to a hdmi @ 60hz.

You could drop all of the odd pixels to get 120hz 960*1080 120hz with a passive adapter. Probably the sipmlest (but bad) solution.

Sounds similar to what I thought, so do you think what is stated below would work?

I would like to be able to record the center screen, however I would like to not use any software and would like to use hardware, current hardware to my understanding to record will only take a 60hz 1080p signal over HDMI/component/vga.

Splitting the 120hz Signal is the easy part, however I would like to then down convert one DVI-120hz line to 60hz over either hdmi/vga/component.

My only theory is that I will be able to use a DVI to either hdmi/component/vga powered converter box, or possibly a single wire (but highly unlikely), I am unsure if it will down convert to 60hz when changing the dvi dual link signal to hdmi/component/vga or will just not give a signal.

Only reason I think a converter may work as to remove hdcp from hdmi you can convert it to dvi and it is gone on some devices, not the same thing as it is refresh rate but I think it may be similar.

edit: I forgot to mention the reason I can not just output the middle monitor duplicated from another output @60hz on the card is that all 3 will be considered 1 large monitor as it will be used in Nvidia Surround, also I have read this introduces input/mouse lag but regardless it is not possible.
