Hi guys,

I've spent many an hour looking for a resolution to this problem and I think I have resigned myself to failure but I'd be ecstatic if any of you can help.

Firstly, the problem.

When I connect my Matsui M22LID618 HD TV to my computer as a monitor via a vga cable, niether Windows nor my Nvidia (Ge8500GT 512mb) control panel will allow me to choose my native resolution (1920 x 1080). In fact, the tv is just shown as a generic PnP monitor in Windows and a CRT in Nvidia!

So, what have I already done with no success? Tried to find a driver (rather than the default windows one) but with no luck. Tried ticking the 'show modes this display cannot handle'. Tried creating a custom resolution in nvidia's control panel - but the test just fails. Tried creating a new EDID file (but got rather stuck with that) and most of the programs just didn't seem to work.

So then I used the dvi port on the graphics card and wacked on a hdmi converter, this then made Nvidia wake up and release it was a HD display. It opened up the native resolution option, but when I chose this the picture quality was awful.

Any ideas? They'd be much appreciated :thumbsup:

Casey

Take it to a repair shop, one that will repair/inspect it. This is not software, it is hardware. I have saw people have to deal with this issue, and they did it by taking the TV to a shop, only to find that their is a fault in it. This current TV is a faulty model.
