Screen resolution with DVI cable

Recommended Posts

Now that i have bought a DVI cable i can connect my PC to my TV. Heres the problem i cannot get the right screen  resolution with it. Down below is a pic of what i mean. I have a 53inch projection tv with a DVI input. My PC has a HDMI ouput that came with a HDMI to DVI adaptor. I have tried all the settings on the ATI catalyst control center(if you know what i mean). This is the best ive got it but it still cuts a lot of.

I dont know if this matters but i bought a 18 pin DVI cable, There was a 24 pin cable, but that was more expensive.

What are your thought abouts this?

Do you have a VGA jack or DVI jack on the TV, that the owner manual said to hook the PC up too? My 40" Samsung LCD will only  get the right resolution[1366X768] when i use the PC jack. In the owner manual it say the HDMI jacks do not support PC connection.

all you need to do is adjust the settings on your tv, its just over scaling the image. If you have a "good" TV there will be a setting for it so you can push the sides and top and bottom in. If not there should be a setting in your ATI settings for that.
