Resolution Issue - Fuzzy Picture

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is my first post, so please be gentle.

Just finished a new comp, but I'm having some resolution issues. Everything besides HD videos/movies is showing up fuzzy, especially text. I've been fighting this issue for several days now, and I've done loads of research on the net already, but nothing seems to work, or I can't find / don't have the options listed. To simplify things, I'll just list what all I've tried and checked and stats of this new comp.

Comp Stats/Info:

Windows: System Rating: 7.7
Processor: Xeon 2.67 GHz
Memory: 12GB
Windows 7 x64 (Updated/Current)
Video Card: GTX 570 SuperClocked | http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...s%20Family&sw=
Monitor: Samsung UN40C63 HDTV | http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN40C6300SFXZA
Mobo: Asus Rampage 3 Extreme | http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=jy0uafxYBCrJwksC
HD #1: 125GB SSD (OS)
HD #2: 2TB POS (Storage)

The Setup:
Connecting Mini-HDMI (PC) to STD-HDMI (TV)
15' HDMI Cable: High Quality
Current video drivers: Vers 263.09

What I have done/checked on/etc:

Wires, connections, & adaptors:
All connections fit snugly.
Switched between several different HDMI cables.
And swapped between a few mini-HDMI adaptors.

Moving on to TV settings:
Verified proper settings.
Adjusted size to remove black border.
Resolution on the TV side is Native 1920x1080.
Renamed the "HDMI 4" port/input to "PC".
Color adjustments are good. HD movies show beautifully!!

Comp settings:
Resolution set to 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz.
Display shows up as a Samsung.
Cleartype ON.
Tried changing resolutions... no effect.
Digital Color Format: RGB

References and Ideas I found on the net:
Could be an EDID issue. (No idea how to adjust that)
Something called "AV Mode" being "On" and needing to be "Off". (Don't see that anywhere in the system settings or TV settings)
A TV setting called "Just Scan" being set to stop oversampling. (Again, don't see that on this TV)
Use a DVI cable instead of a HDMI. (As far as I remember, aren't they the same thing besides that HDMI carries a audio signal with it?)


So at this point I'm getting a little frustrated. I'd prefer to keep it as a HDMI connection, but I will go DVI if necessary. Any ideas guys? Thanks in advance.

can you by chance post a screen shot of the issue? or does it not show up in a screenshot?

I had this issue as well when I first connected my Samsung TV. I'm having trouble remembering exactly what I did to solve the issue, , but I'm pretty darn sure that renaming the Input to "PC" is what did it for me. Since you've already done that...

Have you tried updating the TV's firmware?

Note - When I checked for a software update for mine via its ethernet connection, it said that no update was available. Upon checking Samsung's support page, there was a newer version, which I installed using a USB flash drive.

Have you tried connecting your HDMI cable to the 1(DVI) port?

It is labeled as "HDMI1/DVI" in the Source list. You will need to label it as "PC". You will be able to receive audio through this connection.

Lastly, on a side note, my picture was originally, slightly washed out. I had to change the "Digital color format" under "Display" in the NVIDIA Control Panel to "YCbCr444".

Not sure a screen shot would do anything to help. Its not like snow or wavy lines or anything that drastic. Its just a fuzzy picture in general. It reminds me of the old days when certain TVs required physical adjustments, and if they weren't perfect, the picture would be slightly miss aligned. I suppose you could call it a slight ghost image?

I'll give those a try as soon as I get back. Thanks for the info. I'll let you know how it works out.

This is probably the solution.

According to page 11 of the User Manual of your HDTV, HDMI In 1 (DVI) port should be used (vs your current using HDMI 4)when connecting to a PC. It should be the bottom one of the 4 HDMI ports.

Try it.

HDTVs usually have a dedicated port for PC input. Older ones have a VGA usually. Now newer HDTVs have HDMI-PC input port. And I believe HDMI In 1 (DVI) is designated for PC usage.
