HDTV can't display 1080p properly (via hdmi)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Basically, whenever I try to connect my desktop PC (gtx460,1440x900monitor) or my laptop (gtx 650m/intel hd graphics,1920x1080 screen resolution) to the TV (via hdmi), it won't display 1080p properly. When set to 1080p, the quality of the image becomes worse (similar to when you don't have your graphics drivers installed) and the image goes out of the screen= it cannot fit the TV properly. However, when I set the resolution (when using my desktop) to 1440x900, or anything higher but 1080p, and duplicate the multiple displays, it fits perfectly. The situation with the laptop is similar. Even though its maximum screen res is 1920x1080 (unlike my desktop monitor), the image on the TV still worsens when the resolution is maximized.

What could be the cause? This is the tv I am using Samsung Ue32EH500

I have the exact same problem with my Samsung!! It has actually scared me away from buying another monitor before I figure this out, so I hope someone has the answer. Whether it be an in-game setting for resolution or using my card driver to set the resolution, I cannot get 1080p (or 1920x1080, as these are apparently different settings in CCC?) to display right. The image goes past the screen, and in game it will take the color and vividity (is that a word?) away from the image. Very frustrating. I called Samsung and talked to 3 techs about the issue, it was equally as frustrating. They didn't know what I was talking about, they said "the monitor is a 1080p TV sir" and I said yes...now why doesn't my computer display properly when setting to that resolution? The answer I got was to go in to my graphic card settings and manually adjust GPU scaling, but this simply put does not work, and is not the answer. In-game settings override this and still don't work, and the image will never be correct. The only thing I can do is adjust to a resolution that actually works for the screen, like 1776x1000, disappointing to me that I can't seem to display the advertised resolution. My hardware is in my sig.

a. change the aspect ratio on your tv, on my tv it's called "screen adjustment". I think the default mode is "scan" which results in picture too big for tv.
b. turn on game mode. game mode disables any optimizations the tv may have applied.
