[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 597

EDIT: coelacanth beat me to it. My response anyway:

I'm pretty sure "perfect pixel" is just a term that many people are using. It's not something guaranteed by the manufacturer. Hulustar happens to indicate which monitors they have hand selected as being perfect pixel. By ordering from someone other than hulustar you can't really expect that marking to exist.

Just got my Qnix QX2710LED. I connected the cables and tried to boot up the computer. The screen showed POST and I was happy, but the moment it passed that, the screen turned blank and blue light started flashing. Any idea why?

Perhaps if you didn't have a HDMI compatible receiver you'd be forced to do this - but lossless audio codecs or multi-channel PCM audio wouldn't be possible. If you're specifically talking about audio from games then I think that you must be encoding the audio with Dolby Digital Live. Unfortunately I believe you're limited to 5.1 which will be heavily compressed. Either that or you're outputting Stereo PCM.

My current onboard sound doesn't have the DDL license to do this and the software solutions that I've tried cause AV synchronisation issues. To use Dolby Digital Live I'd need to buy a dedicated sound card and if doing so I might as well buy a 7.1 card with analogue outputs (removing the need for DDL).

Thank you for the info about the Qnix and TV running in tandem successfully.

Just got it installed. Haven't noticed any BLB or any dead pixel. So far, so good.




Is there any really good quick method to check for BLB?
I suppose turning off all the lights and set a full screen black image?

Yes there is apparently some factory sticker but idk if on all "PP" or from all sellers and who the hell knows exactly what they check for exactly...at any rate there is really no sense in wondering or fretting about it. If no dead pixels then great that was the point and if there are--well now you have a better shot at getting a replacement, I guess.

So just hook it up!

Edit: oops responded to your latest post already lol...so cool no DP. Though considering they have only gone down in price for that much it had better be an immaculate one.

Nothing happens, just continuating blue blinking light. Switch cable back to old 1080p and it works fine. Blinking blue light when I switch it back to qnix.

I can go into bios, but thats it. Everytime I restart, it will just goes into standby after post.

Try hooking up both your monitors to the video card, and check to see what resolution your video card is sending to the Qnix. Make sure it's 1440p.

Also, check what kind of cable you're using with the Qnix. It needs to be a Dual-Link DVI cable, so the end should look like this:

Has anyone tried to paint the bezel with a matte coating?
