I just tried a few websites with black backgrounds and other color backgrounds and then scanned for backlight (to the best of my ability to see) and stuck pixels (could not see any).


I have been having some problems with watching HD content though. I keep getting an HDCP error message on Vudu HDX movies and which went away for some reason and I was able to watch HDX after downloading Itunes to watch an HD movie on there, but then when I tried switching scaling to GPU scaling, I began getting the same error again and this time Itunes won't play the movie either.

Not sure if this is an AMD driver thing as several people with Nvidia cards have reported no problems or if it is something else.

Any ideas on this HDCP content thing? I can't watch I Tunes HD or Vudu HDX movies now ... I've tried a few things like clearing cache and reinstalling Itunes and Adobe Flash (Vudu) but it doesn't work.

Supposedly it's test mode that breaks HDCP, but that's no longer required to OC these monitors.

Ok great, I was able to solve it. When I switched from monitor scaling to GPU scaling to compare, it caused some kind of error in device manager with the monitor not being detected properly. Once I uninstalled the monitor and restarted Windows, allowing the monitor to be installed properly and show up without error in device manager, I was able to watch HD content again.

And it looks spectacular!

So I went ahead and got one of those Monoprice cables everyone recommended even though I've been getting a stable 120Hz all this time. I've been using the cable that came with my Monoprice Zero-G 27" monitor until now and was planning on selling it with that monitor when the time comes. I assumed I would be getting the same cable but instead I got this incredibly thick beast of a cable! To my surprise, it didn't work as well. I turned the computer on and was immediately getting screen tear at 120Hz. I tested the old cord again and watched a 1080p movie with no tear. Put the monoprice 24AWG cord back and got screen tear again. I was kind of surprised really... I'll try again later and this time with the cord straightened(it's so thick it stayed coiled) but I don't think I'll be using this thicker cable.

The cable I'm using is Space Shuttle-D E101344, Style 20276, 30V, 5ft DVI-D. Picture is attached. There's a lot of single link versions but this is one of the few dual link DVI versions I could find on ebay(might want to verify before purchasing)

So I wanted to test the true limit of this cable but wasn't able to get Nvidia to detect a refresh rate of 132Hz. Any idea why?

People stopped recommending the thick cable awhile back since they found it didn't really work, as you have found.

Doh! Guess I shouldn't have skipped around in the thread so much. Would have saved some money.

Damn... I thought I had this solved, but for some reason it keeps reverting back to the "Non-HDCP compliant" message. I'm not sure what is changing that is causing this error. Anyone have any ideas?

This is on Vudu HDX for the most part. What is odd is that when I install ITunes and watch an HD movie on Itunes, suddenly Vudu lets me watch HDX again. But when I uninstall Itunes, I can't watch HDX.

??

I've tried running the CyberDVD Blu-ray diagnostics and when this error occurs, the diagnostic says my monitor AND drivers are not HDCP compliant.

I'm running the most recent 5/13 AMD drivers for my 7950. I could try the beta drivers but does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?

I have my monitor at 120Hz and it looks darker than at 60Hz. I used the 2.2 Gamma 6500k Color Temperature ICC profile which makes it better, but it still seems kind of dark. Is there any way to make it brighter? I have my brightness button clicked all the way up.

That's a common "side-effect" of overclocking it to higher numbers. You have to just turn the brightness all the way up and use gamma boosted ICC profiles.

I chose to stay at 96hz because the screen is very smooth and the colors still remain crisp and vibrant.
