Well I had a HP ze4115 hooked to my 56" RCA DVI HDTV (D56W20) with a S-Video cable. It was blurry but it was the best I could do with that laptop.
With the HP, 800x600 was the best looking res. for my TV. Like I said, it was blurry, but it did take up the entire screen.
I decided to buy a new laptop, and since hooking it to my TV was the number 1 priority, this time I picked out a laptop with a VGA, AND HDMI output. (Nothing new has a DVI output) However both the VGA, and the HDMI both have converter cables to DVI.
So I got excited, and bought a HDMI to DVI cable, expecting a HUGE difference over the S-video. Both laptop, and TV are HDCP complient so I got lucky.
Well, now I got everything hooked up, but there is a problem! For some reason with the HDMI-DVI hookup, my TV display looks like its been zoomed out, and it flickers ALOT (see attachment below)
Someone please help me out, I don't know what to do, at this point, I miss my S-video! but if this laptop isn't going to work, then I need to take it back.
I have this thread set to Instant Email Notification, So I will be standing buy to answer any questions you have. Please help me figure this mess out!
Thanks in advance!
ok, Some how I tricked the computer into going into a 720x480 display that took up the entire screen. Actually it is a little TOO BIG (pictured below).
At first when I went to 720x480 it stayed the same, but I set the display up to "extend" instead of "clone", then went on the display settings and changed it.
Then I put it back to "clone" and it stayed large. If I could just find a way to resize the display a hair, I could live with the HUGE MENUS.
Seriously the display on the TV looks great, just a little to big
