Ok I really need some help from you all for steps to take on getting my monitor to work. I searched the thread and only saw one person who was getting the scrolling color pattern like I got today and he didn't mention how he got it resolved. First off:

2600k 3.9Ghz
8GB RAM 1333
MSI 770 GTX 4GB
24 AWG Tripp-Lite DVI-Dual link cable
and 9' Amazon basics HDMI to DVI cable

I was running my HDTV to my computer as a monitor at 1360x768 with the HDMI to DVI cable. I did not switch any of these settings at all when I went to hook up the new monitor I just assumed it would display an output having it plugged in. When the monitor detects a signal it blinks quickly and then proceeds to scroll the color test patterns endlessly. Even switching ports and cables, doing full shut down and restart cycles, I cannot get it to display an image. I cannot even get it to show the BIOS splash screen. I normally run DVI from the computer to HDMI on the TV, but no matter which of the two cables I used (I also tried with the included cable) it will not display anything besides the color pattern.

I have a return policy to Amazon and it is already boxed up to go back. However, if you all have seen this before or have suggestions that I could use to get this to work properly I am definitely open to it. Short of opening it up of course because that would void my return capabilities. Any help is appreciated because the screen appears to be flawless and I'd like to keep it. Thanks everyone.

Edit: To ensure my 770 GTX ports were performing properly I grabbed an old acer monitor with a DVI display and hooked it up. It displayed everything and even chose the correct resolution for the monitor (1650x1080) without me having to change anything. I get the feeling that this is how the QNIX should have performed...
Your not using the hdmi to dvi with the new monitor right?



Messed with SVP. Works as advertised for sure. But not for me. Makes everything look so fake idk. To each is own.

Yes and No. I first used the cable that came with the monitor, switched to the 24 AWG Tripp-Lite DVI cable, and then for kicks tried using the hdmi to DVI to see if I got output from the HDMI port. None of them were able to get a response.

Yeah it's so clear, all the illusion of reality is definitely stripped away. You can tell the props and costumes, and CGI and Painted backgrounds, I love it. Most people hate it though.

You should delete all resolutions except 60hz. might have to plug in another monitor to do it, worht a try.

In the NVIDIA control panel where it showed my resolutions and I can say that now all of them are set to 60hz except for 1152x864 but that is because it only has the 75hz option. 800x600 and 1024x768 were at 75hz as well but I have changed those back to 60hz now. It won't let me delete 1152x864. Is that what you were having me try?

Edit: On the Acer monitor I have the default resolution set to 1280x720 @60hz and I was wondering if I shut it down and connect the Qnix monitor and restart, if the display works it should display this resolution correctly? Just in a 4:1 pixel ratio?

When I first saw it I was amazed. It was incredible Hulk at a local fry's store. Looked like 3d. But after watching it a bit I can't get into it. Its cool for Pixar movies. I want to check it out on football this sunday, heard it looks good. (Go Chargers)!!!!!!!!

5. My guide is more in depth on some of the features, it is up to date, it has better filters, and it has better documentation and explanations on some aspects of SVP and the setup process in general.
6. My guide is better than no guide at all.
7. If the guide is followed to a T, there may be less problems getting video/audio played correctly than SVP Full, as the9quad and a couple others (iirc) had.
8. You learn something in the process.
9. I like contributing to OCN thumb.gif

My apologies, I didn't mean it as in you wasted your time I just didn't know there was even that much involved with it. I literally installed everything and opened up svp manager and then MPC and played my movies. Your guide definitely brought some things to my attention though and I am thankful for that. Sorry again if that came off rude.

Always love when people contribute! biggrin.gif

Newer movies are getting better about some of that stuff but man, one of the worst is watching the first Ghost Rider. You can literally tell all the buildings are made of foam haahahaha!

But I'm with you, I love it! Avengers and Hobbit I think look incredible at high framerate.

No hard feelings, bud thumb.gif

As segregated as OCN can be at times, I've learned a lot of information reading through this website, and I try to chip in whenever I can.

Quick update; I've only had this monitor for a few days and so far I absolutely love it, games look amazing on it and I'm still trying to figure out tweaking my settings in game. I have one question though and it's the quality of the movies. I feel like it could look better? I know there isn't any 1440p content except Timescape; only thing I found online. I had my bluray drive installed and I had to download a trial program of CyberLink PowerDVD 13, because it was the only way to view my bluray movies. I popped in Game of Thrones and it looked good, viewing Netflix looked good, and downloaded a movie, and it looked good; but not amazing like my games. Is this because it's all HD/1080p content that is being upscaled to 1440p? Or should I try to calibrate my monitor?

I need some advice,

I'm thinking of buying this one http://www.ebay.ie/itm/121133303453?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

It's the QNIX with multiple input ports. I read in the FAQ this not OC'able - this makes me very sad as I'm looking for high refresh rates (120hz if possible but I'll settle for lower) HOWEVER I also need this monitor to work with my PS3 system (hey if Tekken was on PC I wouldn't need it) which is currently connected to a TV which I'll be selling in order to afford this monitor. I really need that extra HDMI port for it but I also really want high refresh rates for the PC (the main reason I'm in the market in the first place). Is there absolutely no way to OC the multi input monitor I linked above? Any and all advice and comments welcome. Thanks in advance.
