So.... at my girlfriends house they have a Polaroid TDX-02611C 720p HDTV. Weve used this tv in the past numberous times to connect my pc to when I bring it over. Lastnight was the same deal...accpet ive always noticed it will run in 1366x766 (dont quote me on the exact res) but the point is it wouldnt display in 720p. I have a Radeon HD 6850 card so my pc is more than capable of running in that format. I changed the res to that and the picture was burry and began to flash black faster and faster until the tv screen went blue and said no signal or something along those lines. Turned the tv off and then on again then I just ran it at the 1366x766 res and played swtor for about an hour. Then we swtiched to direct tv and watched a show for about 10 mins then the tv just turned off and it wont turn back on. I thought maybe it was overheating because the back of the tv was extremely hot but its the next morning and it still wont turn on. I want to know if I caused this by messing with the resolutions with my pc. Like I said ive never had this issue before but im worried I fried the family television to feed my mmo addiction. Any feedback or knowledge of this happening with HDTV's would be greatly appreciated.
