1920x1080 resolution problem on 65" dlp tv

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I have a Mitsubishi 65" dlp tv and I recently hooked my computer up to it.

the native res is 1920x1080, i think, and that is what Windows recommends for it.

The problem is that the resolution cuts off about 3 inches all around the screen. I can barely see my icons and start bar.

The tv has no settings for zoom or auto fix.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like a defect with the TV. I have no problems with my Toshiba DLP.

Most likely a 1080i screen being scaled. My friend has a Mitsubishi 1080i screen and his does the same thing.

It could just be a glitch that they never realized?

blue ray and every thing else plays flawlessly. This is a very high quality tv so it would shock me that they skipped that.

could it be the hdmi cable? I was using a 10$ hdmi cable from walmart lol I thought it was working great for a 10$ cable.

Is your screen 1080i? If it is it may just be the built in scaler that messes up the image. The problem is that the scaler does not handle 1080p which is 1920x1080 every frame. Instead it interleaves frames every other line that is visible on the screen. I am not sure how the TV would interpret this from a pc outputting a 1080p. I would think that the computer would have adapted the image for your computer but who knows. Like I said my buddies screen did the same as yours and well I didn't spend that much troubleshooting it.

It's a scaling issue. Your vid card driver should have a slider for adjustment of the over and underscan.

yes it is 1080i. I remember that.

also when I changed the resolution is nvidia control panel, it locked the hertz at 30hz, which sucked crap.

Windows resolution changes it and leaves it at 60hz.

Very weird. Must be the same thing that happened to your buddy.
No problem. I just lower the resolution on notch in Windows and the screen is still giant and the entire thing fits. Thanks all!

Do you know how to use that slider or where it is? nvidia control panel?
I looked all around it and couldn't find anything.

1080p @ 30hz is what it was doing which is 1080i @ 60 hz. I would personally drop down to whatever fills the screen at 60hz. TV scalers are usually pretty good. Either you choose less pixels and decent frame rates at full screen or you will get full screen full resolution at seizure inducing frame rates. Not much you can do about it.
