The "I-feel-stupid" thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just posting this thread to say how I feel stupid about an HDMI problem I was having for a couple of months.

While I have been experiencing various problems with my 6970 (one of which, driver-related, I haven't yet solved), I was having an issue with my receiver and sound and basically getting HDMI to go from my graphics card, to my receiver, to my screen. I ended up instead sending DVI to my screen, and HDMI to my receiver (sending two of the same video signals, so "duplicate display" mode).

This caused major issues with screen tearing (as I was having troubles with in another thread) which wouldn't go away.

So I found out why my receiver was having issues with HDMI passthrough: I forgot to go into my ATI catalyst, go to Scaling Options, and set the Overscan to 0%. >_<;

So now I've fixed my issue by setting overscan to 0% (default 15% for some reason), and now I'm using my receiver to pass-through my HDMI signal to my screen. Finally no more issues (until my receiver breaks down from running so hot lol! vsx-1019-ah-k).

At least you figured out your own problem and learned.
