42" as monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought [ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...27&Tpk=42ld550 ] at bestbuy on Monday, for the same price. So far its great, minus the fact some of my MKVs will not stream audio because apparently its unsupported. Not really my issue though.

I currently have the TV connected with a DVI to HDMI adapter. MY 5970 has a mini display port on the back, what would be the best mini display port to hdmi converter and would I see better quality? Right now it looks great, and even better if i play files from my NAS directly through the TV and not my PC. But I feel like its being held back by the DVI to HDMI, because my refresh rate is only 60Hz when the TV can support more.

Is this correct? Or would I note see a quality increase with a mini displayport to hdmi converter?

There will not be any difference in quality, so I wouldn't recommend wasting your money on an adapter.

TV's cannot support more then 60hz input, even the 240hz ones.

That's too bad. I have a 46" Sony and there is no lag at all.

Did you make sure to turn off all the image processing? That can cause input lag.

Running an LG 42" LCD over HDMI just fine. Games work great too. But like Crazy9000 said, 60hz is the highest you can go.

^ Ok cool, and yeah... not sure why your TV is lagging, but mine is perfect. I just wanted to know if there would be any quality difference (as far as Hz goes) with the mini dp to hdmi. I'll more than likely get an adapter but no time soon, thanks guys.
