Intel HD4600 screen tear?
I just built a new general purpose desktop PC for my bedroom. While it's not an HTPC per se, that is one of its functions. It's connected via HDMI to a Yamaha AVR and a Sony HDTV. The monitor is connected with DVI and I'm running clone mode (1920 x 1080). I'm getting screen tear on the second display. I have the latest Intel drivers, Windows 8.1 64-bit is up to date, as is my motherboard's bios. This only happens in clone mode and only on the second display, regardless of whether the monitor or HDTV is the second display.
The simple solution was to make my HDTV the primary display. When the TV is turned off of course my monitor becomes the primary display, and there is no screen tear.
So this isn't really a big problem in terms of real world use, but I am curious if anyone has come up with a solution (short of a new GPU)?
Here is the build:
Gigabyte GA-Z87 DS3H motherboard
Intel i5-4440 CPU
2 x 4GB DDR3 1866 RAM
2 x 2TB HDD (for now)
Pioneer BD ROM drive
I use XBMC 13 for movies (uncompressed blu-ray rips) and MediaMonkey 4 for music (FLAC, including hi-res and multi-channel DVD-Audio rips).
