Have another question?

Just bought a Samsung 32" 550 for a computer monitor and the resoluntion at normal 1080 sucks for a computer image but several others work ok//TV picture is perfect.

work fine=1600x1200, 2848x1536,1920x1440,1792x1344/:slight_smile:

suck=1920x1200,1920x1080,1856x1392,1800x1440,1776x1000,:frowning:

marginal=1680x1050:eek:

What is weird is that the higher resolution even works at all:confused:

etp, it sucks when showing plain text (eq word, browsers, my computer) but graphics, jpg or movies will be fine. If you have an ATI Radeon video card, have you tried installing Catalyst and set the resolution to 1080p60 (1920 x 1080 @60Hz)?

Black bands around entire picture at 1080/60. Desktop visuals are also poor at that resolution. Could not find an adjustment on the TV to fix that other than wide fit mode in the menu. Then the picture is out of the borders. Trying wide fit and 1920X1440 and its ok. It seems the BD will play on any resolution which is strange to me.

nope/went back to 16X9 mode. Great TV BTW.

Under HDTV > scalling in the ATi CC drivers there is a scale slider which is enabled when using HDTV resolutions (which you are). By default it is set to around about -7% which accounts for normal HDTV’s in 16:9 mode. My 40" Samsung LCD I run in Just Scan mode and have to move the slider to 0% scalling to get a full screen without boarders, it also gives me crisp clean letters etc whereas scalled pictures are horrid.

Generally I run at 1080p/24hz as 90% of BR / HD movies are 24fps.

That may work for movies, but that does not work as a computer display for me. I can not adjust the picture down small enough for 1920x1080 for the monitor function.


#10

Where is the Just scan mode? Man I saw it last night but cannot find it today.


#11

If its the same menu as mine then its under TV > page 2 lists Size (will list Just scan, 4:, 16:9, Pan & Scan + Just Scan)

Got a deal on this at BB $899 with an additional 12% off=$791. On hind sight I could have bought the HANSPEE 28.5" monitor but the TV has a complete built in tuner which will work for dual use.
