A little help with HDMI output please!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody! I recently upgraded my machine to a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 670 (Which I am loving!) However, the issue is, I use my computer with a 32" LED TV, and with my old card, I used a DVI to VGA adapter, but I want to use a HDMI with this one (It's a long story why I don't just stick to what I have, not going to bother with that).

Anyway, the picture from the HDMI output just doesn't look good. Pictures are kind of "scratchy" if that makes sense, and the words aren't very crisp. Does anyone have any advice how to fix this? Or am I stuck with just having to use a VGA input (the card only has a DVI so I have get an adapter to use it with my TV, it doesn't have a DVI-in.)

Thanks! biggrin.gif

get moninfo.exe,run it ,extract edid.then look in there,it will say rgb.then it will say non srgb.if it does then you need to disable ms color and gpu color and let scrern do everything.since i know w fight toot and nail and want us to use scrgb .it might be hard.see srgb and non srgb are not the same even tho ms yell otherwise .one use yuv the other use srgb .both rgb but both very diff.to top it all off to use ycbcr all involved need to play along .this mean amd set to ycbcr,itc in gpu activated.this is were i am lost .w color on or off.i know ycbcr via hdmi is locked to 4.2.2 .yes locked.in the standard its a requirement .nvidia play along.amd is rebel.it doesnt help us anyway since last i checked amd doesnt sell ycbcr 4.4.4 adaptor or cacle and even if they did the hdtc cut the signal to 16 -235 or such.oh some hacker unlock the whole thing but it is like that out of the box.at the end?it isnt worth it.why because ycbcr is a compressed signal.moralhook via vga or get a dvi-d double screen.yes vga or dvi are the only worthy one.dvi is less good then vga.hdcp is a nightmare.its a standard on paper only .oh it can block anything but most of the time lower quality on legal stuff.moral?there is nothing but hack solution wise.

ummm.... I know your signature says you use a translator... but I can't really make out what you're trying to say.

I tried to follow your instructions, but I was stopped at step 1... I don't have moninfo.exe

You could try using a DVI to HDMI adapter. Plug the adapter into the dvi port on the card and run hdmi cable to the television. I get a perfect 1080p picture from an old 4870 that way.

On the other hand, you can probably fix the picture by messing with the resolution and refresh settings. Check all that in the NV control panel. You want it set to max res and max refresh. You should be a able to get a clear picture from HDMI.

That's what I'm doing right now... Decided to just keep with the DVI to VGA setup, in fact, I just ordered a DVI to VGA cable lol. Don't fix what ain't broken, right?
