For the past five years I've been a a proud, happy owner of Toshiba 56H80 hi-def RPTV. I want to build a new PC gaming system and run it through the TV via hi-def component. I don't see any infomation related to resolutions or screen refresh rates supported by this TV. Does anyone have any knowledge of this or success with doing the same with a similar hi-def RPTV? I've read that some older hi-def RPTV may not support the newer graphic cards adn games. Thanks

It can be a little tricky - you have to feed your TV a resolution that it can recognize. Some have had varying success with using various software, such as Powerstrip, etc. for custom resolutions and refresh rates.

The standard resolutions, such as 480p, 720p and 1080i should feed okay to your TV.

P.S. That's a great looking RPTV!

I've had no trouble feeding my X1 PJ (I know, not technically a HD device!) 480i/480p/720p/1080i signals from cable and HTPC.

MY DILEMMA: New car or PJ? New car or PJ? New car or PJ?
