So in order to OC these monitors (Qnix..etc) do we have to follow the OP overclocking guide or can't we just do it straight from the Nvidia Control Panel. I'am still fairly new at this.

Well... Start blinking! And drink more water.

Do you game in an otherwise dark room? If so, kiss the "cinematic experience" goodbye and turn on some lights. You want to keep your monitor brightness roughly similar to the ambient light level of your room... Unless you got a glossy screen, in which case you're kind of just screwed.

Gunnar Optics can also be useful, they do work but I'm not sure I can recommend them for the price. Also, the yellow tinted ones will screw up the color on a calibrated monitor.


on the monitor's side of things, calibrating colors and getting a high-as-possible refresh rate and frame rate will be helpful.

Just found out doing the guide was the right way to overclocking. Can't just enter "120hz" from the control panel. Also seem to increase fps in games.

I can not find "ATI MPEG Video Decoder" in the MCDU decoders....

The default decoded gets a black screen in MCE. AMD Video Decoder and AMD MJPEG Decoder both get Decoder error.

Any ideas for what else I can try to get MCE working? thanks

What version of Windows? I use shark007 codecs for Win7 or Win8 (there are about 6 computers in my house running either Win 7 or Win 8 and Media Centre is working on all of them including with my QNix).

96 hz is better than 105 hz right? For the sake of being able to watch movies and what not right?

I use K - Lite, shouldn't really be a difference?

Did you use the MCDU to change the video decoder? Or are you saying that Shark007 default just works?

Do you have a AMD GFX with patched driver for overclocking hz?

The shark007 defaults work fine for me. I do have a Radeon 5870 but I have not patched the driver and am not overclocking.

I have not used MCDU to change decoders since I switched to using the shark007 codec pack and its setup program. On my PC it works with the default settings (sound is either headphones or the QNix speakers - which are not very good). On my Media centre PC I have to play with the setttings but that is because it needs to work without expert intervention and with a remote and is connected to an Amp via HDMI).

When it is not working it can be a real pain to get right. I normally debug with Windows Media Player as that usually gives more information about the problem..

Yeah its one of the known issues with patching the driver.

http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher

However the known fix....does not work.

It seems outdated and not up to speed with Win8 + AMD Cat 12.5b2

Its fine without patching the driver....argh. I think I will just go to WinFast PVR2 though MCE has a much nicer interface.

Yesterday after having my browser open (and actively using it) for an hour or two, I booted up Dishonored, in the top right corner and some to the left there was image retentention or burn-in from my browser! This was when i had the monitor at 100hz. Went to sleep and turned the monitor off. It´s gone today. Has anyone had this issue?
