Vizio 42" E3D420VX 3D LCD HDTV

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can't seem to get this tv running at 120hz when hooked up to my PC.

I have a gtx 680 for a graphics card and am using a standard HDMI cable... I've tried both 1080p and 720p and neither give me the option for a 120hz refresh rate in the nvidia control panel or windows control panel... Why?

For the thousandth time, those 120Hz, 240Hz etc TVs can't accept anything overa 60Hz signal. They aren't true 120Hz displays, they just use interpolation trick.

And I'm pretty sure 1920x1080@120Hz is well outside HDMI spec anyway.

yeah i thought I'd need to use DVI to get 120hz on the PC... but you're saying I can't watch blu rays on my PC @ 120hz??
