***I don't know if this is the right section i should be in - it deals with HTPC but also tv's being used as monitors.***
I have a 52' samsung LN52B750 and hooked it up to my rig/HTPC (using a HDMI to DVI cable) which is connected to a GTX 275 O/C. (both TV and video card are HDCP capable)
Here is my problem, I don't know if it's from the cable, my setting or what but i'm getting alot of white pixels in the black areas. I understand tv's cant produce full black but i've never came across a problem with this. I'm attaching a screenshot of a .dream on my background so you can see what i mean by white pixelations. I'm kind-of baffled from playing with all the settings to figure if i could correct the problem, I actually have a huey PRO comming to get my tv calibrated but i'm still kind-of going back to the cable.
(just fyi, my 52' is wall mounted - so the last thing i want to do is pull it off the wall to change out HDMI-to-DVI back to VGA-to-DVI to test it). If anyone has an suggestions or been through this problem before - let me know, i'm kind-of out of ideas here.
If you need anymore information, please just ask.
Thanks in advance
(you can see in the dark areas around the corners the white pixels standing out)
