Hi all, I recently purchased a 32 sharp aquos 1080p HDTV for my desktop. I connected a s-video cable from my computer to tv, but now I dont have the same resolution. I am using a 7600 gs nvidia video card which I think will support my hdtv. Anyone know what I can do to get better resolutions? will I have to buy a dvi to hdmi cable?
SVideo is limited to the standard NTSC resolutions, which maxes out at 525 lines. You are not going to be pumping 1600x1200 resolutions through there, and certainly not HDTV signals. If your Aquos has a VGA or HDMI port on it, best to get a connection supporting that from your video card instead.
aaaaaaaaaaahhh, I'm still having problems with this computer to hdtv, I connected the tv to computer using hdmi to dvi, but the tv doesnt recognise signals. is there some a setup for my video card that I have to do? I have a 7600 gs nvidia
Check the settings on your video card. I have an nVidia in my HTPC and there a checkbox to force TV out. The "help" says to check this on if you can't get a picture on your TV.
I have an LG 32" and read in a forum that if you want to display a PC through the HDMI port then you have to label the TV's HDMI input as PC in the TV setup menu. Maybe your Sharp behaves the same way.
I finally got my hdtv to work for my computer. I didnt reset the power after connecting the plugs. lol. but now I think my video card and computer cant handle the hdtv. I can only 1360x768 for windows without any problems. Maybe during sumer I will get a new system, but for now this will do. thanks.
A 1080p display will work the best (assuming a HDTV is used.) That way you will be able to get 1920x1080 resolution without interlace. Just make sure the TV actually accepts 1080p. A 24" computer monitors are getting reasonably priced as well. They provide 1920x1200 resolution.
