    hdmi with monitor?

    Well i finally got my hdmi->hdmi cable to work(instead of dvi-->hdmi) but i cant use the resolution of 1680x1050, only 1900x1080 or other "HD Modes". Any ideas why this is?
    Card is 4850 vapour-x and on widnows 7 64bit.

    Re: hdmi with monitor?

    Depends on the monitor in question. It usually tells whatever is connected to it what resolutions it can display.

    I have a Hyundai LCD TV that had to be sent back to the manufacturer to get a DDI update as it was telling my PC it was a 17" monitor and wouldn't display the correct resolutions.

    Have you tried powerstrip? It allows you to force custom or unsupported resolutions to the monitor or TV.

    What's the make and model of the monitor and have you confirmed that it is a supported resolution?

    Re: hdmi with monitor?

    Well forcing the resolutions jsut provides a "no signal" message. The thing is, using dvi to hdmi where the hdmi connects to the monitor and the dvi is connected to my card, it works flawlessly so i presumed changing the input from dvi to hdmi wouldnt actually change much apart from the use of audio which is what i wanted for lan since it has built in speakers.

    Oh and the model is an LG 22LS4R, 1680x1050 naitive hdmi/component/built in tuner other connections and speakers .

    I've frequently come accross this problem with numerous flatscreen monitors and TVs, and its really frustrating because it should be _so simple_.

    I've found in two seperate instances, and others may have a better method, that simply switching to and from various resolutions until the correct one becomes available works for me.

    So say I have a TV thats 1360x768, i'll go up to a random res - say 1920x1080, then down to something to say 1280x1024 - then back up to something else, and, after a little while, 1360x768 is available. Once you've got it.. don't change it

    This winds me up, because it goes against everything I know about how to troubleshoot problems. If I come up against a problem, I like to understand why it happened and exactly what I did to solve it. In some instances i've gone so far as to extract the related information from the display driver IC just to make sure I wasn't cracking up. (One time I wasn't - came accross a Samsung SyncMaster 205bw that had been misprogrammed )
