Have you tried ReVision ?.. .That looks very very good in 1920x1080 !...Hi All,
I have a 40" Samsung LA40M81BDX (thats what they call it in Australia anyway). It works perfectly with my PC at 1080p @ 60Hz via VGA. I am using just an old ATI Raedon x700 in my HTPC. I have a DVI to HDMI cable which also works well to the TV at 1080p. The only problem is that the ATI Catalyst software does detect the conversion cable but doesn't allow more than 30Hz. This is a limitation of the card/software and not the TV though. The TV just takes what it can get and works perfectly! time to upgrade the card. May as well just get one with HDMI output and avoid the hassle. The TV has 3 HDMI inputs (and incidentally looks great with Blu-rays from the PS3).
I wish there was a native 1920x1080 skin for MP though. Streching a smaller one just messes with the fonts
I cant see how your demand 1) and 4) can be satisfied at once. A given lcd tv has only one physical resolution, all others have to be scaled.Hey Folks,
My pre-requisites for buying the tv were as follows:-
1. Did it support 1366*768 resolution with a low response time, oh I do like playing games on big screen lcd's.
2. Did it have VGA connectivity as with the machine I had at the time I didn't have HMDI as an option for output.
3. Did it have a HDMI interface for future connectivity.
4. Did it support 720p natively and was it able to 1080 albeit forced down to 720p.
5. Could I get it for less than £800, remembering I bought this over a year ago when prices hadn't dropped as much as now.
I certanily dont feel "elite". I have a cheap nvidia 6600gt, using DVI to an inexpensive 40" lcd. I still would like my live tv and dvds to play without stuttery movement, living in i PAL country. The Samsung tvs cannot do that in a good way, as VGA cant support 50Hz and its HDMI is limited to 720p/1080 withoverscan.Haven't had the time, the incliniation, or the funds :-( to try out connectivity via HDMI yet. I'll leave that to the 1:1 50Hz experts on this threat ;-) as they are obviously the elite few who can afford to use it ;-)
