if you have to hide things from her you are in for a bad time.

ok so when I try to do that it just says that windows thinks the generic one is ok, and dosnt proceed.?

Which is basically my secondary computer that she might occasionally use.
I wish my wife was like that she doesn't understand this hobby. In my defense though she stays at home with the baby. I work a min of 60 hours a week on the production line fof Nissan making Altimas, Maximas and the Leaf. She doesn't understand that work is hard either but anyone who has worked for a car manufactor knows its physically demanding. So I see it as this is my stress relief from work etc. She has every tv station known to manbecause she is a tv person I can't stand tv. I am addicted to benching and ocn lol.

As long as I spend time with the her and my son, he's six months old, she's fine with my hobby. Obviously they are my main priority, but she understands I need to get away to play games and schtuff.

Yea I never hardly get on my pc unless its when I get home for work since I work night shift there asleep or when there not at home. My smart phone on the other hand I am always checking OCN or reading. I guess OCN is to me like Facebook and Twitter are to others. I wish there was some way to make her understand. Other then that I am always out doing family stuff. I think the worst part is working night shift it feels like throught the week I never see them since I am going to bed when they wake up and getting up when they go to bed. My little girl is 9 months they get big fast. I remember being able to hold her in one hand not anymore lol

So you would calibrate the center monitor and try and match the outside 2 as close to the center monitor as possible. Had to learn this the hard way myself.

+rep for info. (just joking spartan fu i mean f8) biggrin.gif

I'm about with my Spyder Elite to calibrate all my monitors separately. Samsung BW205 x 2 and X-Star 2710 Looks great! Can't respond to the eyefinity setting thou... Guess since it's "one" monitor you would have to set it manually.

Hey guys just got my monitor running. Set 120hz in NV control panel. UFOtest says I am at 60hz. But I had the option for 120hz in BF4 and it ran fine. Does this mean I am at 120? Confused.

So did you use CRU? DId you restart you computer? Don't maximize your browser window when running the UFO test.


I'm having a problem in which when I start an episode of a TV series on HBO Go my computer goes into the static mode. Its as if you change your TV to a station that doesn't have a channel.



Everything else is working fine on the monitor... I have it at 120hz my timings are these:


Except my Vertical Front porch and sync width pixels are both 2, instead of 3 and 5.

Using my stock cable, could it be the reason?
