Sony LCD 40" 120 hz refresh rate (Sony 40 BRAVIA LCD TV)

[qanda]This thread is about the Sony 40 BRAVIA LCD TV. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Now that my TV/Monitor can support 120 Hz do I need a graphics card that also supports Hz? I have a Radeon 4850 card but can only seem to choose up to Hz. It is connected to my PC using HDMI cable.

It wont go above 60Hz so no

do I need a graphics card that also supports Hz?

No. I don’t think your source makes a difference. For NTSC it’s expecting 60Hz, the TV then displays/converts to120Hz. You should be able to turn the 120Hz feature on and off and note the difference.

Double post

Since your T.V. is 1080/24p Input Capable the answer to your question is it is possible, if it’s truly capable and will accept the work around measures that are taken.

NVidia drivers have the capability to set custom refresh rates including 24, 24PsF, 48, 72, and 120. With ATI cards, you need Powerstrip.

Note that this guide is a little old, but you get the point. There has been issues and it’s not a 100% guarantee.

Platinumsword…I just read some of the guide and checked out the web site. I only wish I understood half of what they were talking about. But I will save the website for when I feel like going on a learning binj. Thanks a lot.
