XFX 5850 HDMI trouble - Page 3

post #21 of 27
All HDMI cables are the same. From the $2 ones to the $40 ones. Dont be fooled by name brand.

Then what could be the reason for my HDMI looking worse than VGA?

I honestly cant pin point the answer for you. I am thinking it has something to do with your resolutions settings. If your screenshot wasnt resized, the resolution of it on a 1080p TV would make it look pixelated.

Hey guys,

I finally got it sorted. It wasn't the cable issue. There was a setting called "Size" on my TV+Monitor. I set it to "Unscale" and the picture was clear.

As far as quality is concerned, I am not noticing much difference compared to VGA.
It looks as good as VGA. Do I need to tweak some more settings to get even better picture quality?

I have one more query. When I play 1080p HD videos, there is stuttering. I googled the issue. I think it's because our normal players cannot make use of extra cpu cores.
There is a little stuttering with media player classic and WMP. VLC couldn't even render picture. It just plays audio.

So is there any "free" HD player/codec available that can play HD videos seamlessly?

Thanks in adavance

There isn't going to be much difference between 1920 x 1080 VGA and 1080p HDMI other than the Progressive scan instead of Interlaced of HDMI the neatness of only 1 cable for sound and video. You can now also say 'im using HDMI' and be part of the 'cool' group who live in TV world and think 1080p is the ****e, LEL

On the stuttering - If its just the graphics it could be a driver issue or poor codec or the DVD drive itself - Sorry got now real ideas on that one

My graphics drivers are latest. CCC 11.1.
Could you play 1080p HD videos seamlessly on your system?

Players like PowerDVD 10 claim to play HD videos seamlessly. They claim to use multiple cores on your system. But it's not free...

No as I dont have a HD dvd player, I do have Power DVD though - which can be found for nothing if you look hard enough. It does what they claim.
