1080p grainy?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I just bought a DVI-I to HDMI cable to hook up to my plasma television however when I change the resolution to 19** by 1080 (** because I forget what it is exactly) Windows looks grainy or pixelated. I'm fairly sure that it is not the style of cable and I know my tv can run at 1080p so what is it I'm doing wrong?

DVI-I to HDMI cables work all right, but if your plasma has a DVI hookup, use a straight dvi-dvi cable.

I pretty sure that that is not going to be an option unfortunately, Hopfuly it is something that I an doing because I am disappointed with the quality to say the least. The thing that looks the worst is the text, it is kinda difficult to read.

I run a 1080P TV with my PC using a DVI to DVI cable on an HDCP compliant port and it looks great....are you sure that there isn't some sort of driver control panel setting that is upscaling it or something? It should look crystal clear......
BTW it's 1920x1080
Check your TV settings for that input too....maybe you have something weird set on it. I know I can specify the res on my TV, so maybe the signal from the video card is 1080P, but your TV is downscaling it to 480i or something?

Humm... now that you mention it, when I hit info on the tv it says it is running at 1080i not p how big of a difference in clarity could that make?

Side note it is indeed running at 1920x1080

Are you sure that Windows is set to output in 1920x1080?, the TV might be running at 1080p, but it might be upscaling a lower resolution set by windows. Also, you might need to set the refresh rate to that of the TV.

The text is grainy because of the thing in Vista (I have no idea what it's called) but it smooths over text, it isn't enabled or is set to an incorrect setting in this case.

You probably need to go the the nvidia control panel and change the settings to match the tv like change the refresh rate and resolution and change it from interlaced to progressive.
