Samsung 2494HM Resolution problems. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
seems like people are happy with using their TV as computer monitor here. Just want to check: the text quality is good enough and big enough for you to browse webs and type emails even if you sit 2 meters away from the monitor? (say if your TV screen 32")

Any suggestions for wireless keyboard with build in touchpad/trackball?

Many thanks.

Hello.

I've found out the solution of the 2494HM HDMI problem:

1. Deactivate "AV Mode" in the Monitor Menü ----> no more blurry screen
2. Set "overscan" to 0% in your advanced graphic options of your graphic drivers (eg catalyst control center) ---> no more black bar

thats it. pretty simple. the monitor is great! have fun

Hi All,

I bought this 2494HM and have the same problem , blury text and googling from 2 hours and found this forum now.

My problem is I have laptop T400 with ATI RADEON 3400HD card, and using VGA input,

I can't even find that AV option in menu?
Someone have any suggestion?

thanks..

Well, after stumping both Samsung and Dell (XPS M1330 laptop) tech support, I found that one of the monitor's own menu options (under Setup if you scroll down far enough) is "AV mode." It can be toggled on or off, but seems to come pre-configured as ON for HDMI from the factory! Everything looks great now that it's off.


Interestingly, other people who bought other makes of LCDs were also posting similar complaints about the overscan problem when using HDMI...maybe it's not just Samsung.

Just got mine back from RMA... Completely forgot about this, so many thanks once again!!! thumb.gif

Thanks so much for letting me know about AV mode and the HDMI issues.

I kept mine on HDMI and turned off AV mode and the blurry text problem at least went away.

I bought this thing from Costco so I may try and exchange it; sometimes they will allow that.

Regards,
Mike

Sorry to bring an old thread from the grave but I really got to hand it to textinmotion, he completely solved the problem with AV mode. In fact I didn't even see you could scroll down for more options until my gf said something about it and he mentioned this mode I had never seen before. Sheesh I've had this problem and this monitor for ages now and only NOW am I figuring this out. Thanks!
