Sorry jmone but I don't think that's the issue here (guessing you knew that really ). However, glad to here 60Hz still works OK for you

Intel DG33TL and GMA 15.8 still crashes Vista SP1 on power event in igdkmd32.sys.
igdkmd32.sys version is 7.14.10.1437.

GMA 15.8 mentions a possible fix, 2553745, that are related to power events, but they refer to GMA965/945 and not to 3 series:
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/1553...nvista_gfx.htm

Still 100% reproducable on two Vista Ultimate x86 SP1 DG33TL machines
Is there another more appropriate forum to discuss this problem?

I've tried 1080p30 and even that doesn't work with 15.8 so it's not only 108024p. 1080p50 works fine.

Are you sure it's 1080p no 1080i? If it's directly selectable from the Graphics Tray then it's probably 1080i.

Still, not great news

I'm wondering whether it might be best to recommend returning to either 15.6.1. or 15.7.1 ATM. AFAIK the HDMI situation hasn't changed since then and for HTPC use I can't point to any serious fixes in the last two updates that count for much.

Hopefully we'll hear from Archibael soon. Fingers crossed for his attempts to get greater visibility within the Intel support structure.

Archi, Level 0 is a great idea. I for one would do anything I can to help.

Hi ptr727,

While I'm sure no one will mind you posting the information here, you might get greater exposure posting in the G35 thread (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...938473&page=32) or maybe even starting a new thread.

Personally I can't offer much help regarding SP1 ATM (still a lot of testing to do).

So far I'm not seeing a benefit to 15.8, and I don't have any visibility to it beyond that. I'd go 15.6.1 if possible, as it was 15.7 which started the "default to 800x600" trend.

I do not speak officially in any sense for
Intel Corp., Technology Manufacturing Group
but I do work there.

Wo0zy 1080p30 was selected from the new DTD Calculator, I just assumed it was progressive not interlaced. I get interlaced "for free" in the display settings.

Good luck.

Okey, an update to my situation

I downloaded the newest driver from Intel, manually altered the .inf file (can't get the EDID data from my LCD) by adding standard timing of 1280*720@60Hz which I got from DTD Calculator. Didn't work, so I downloaded the driver from HP (it was a bit older version) and did the same thing and voilá! Now I can select (mystically) both 1280*768 and 1280*720, which weren't availlable before. But.. as I was afraid my LCD is not supportig either one of those. Though, I'm quite sure that using my old laptop (which has some other graphics driver, can't remember..) I used 1280*720 quite alright.

But anyway I'm (for the first time in few days) having hope with this issue, cause now I know I can manually hack the .inf file and it works! Now I just need the correct DTD for 1360*768@60Hz.

Cheers for all the help guys!

Still no success.. Now I tried adding what archibael suggested to Oddish on page 12:

Quote:
Oddish,

Never was able to find an EDID for your monitor, however the -40V2000 gives

66 21 50 b0 51 00 1b 30 46 70 36 00 00 00 00 00 00 1e

as its 1360x768 DTD. You might try that.

to the .inf file, which now looks like this:

Code:
[NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings]
HKR,, TotalDTDCount, %REG_DWORD%, 1     ; This shows number of DTDs to be used. ;  0-->Disable the feature.
;Following keys have 20 bytes (18 byte DTD + 2 Byte flags).
HKR,, DTD_1,%REG_BINARY%, 66,21,50,b0,51,00,1b,30,46,70,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,1e,37,01           ;1920x1080@60...Interlaced
HKR,, DTD_2, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,80,D0,72,1C,16,20,10,2C,1A,80,00,00,00,00,00,86,37, 01         ;1920x1080@50...Interlaced

HKR,, DTD_4, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,72,51,D0,1E,20,6E,28,25,00,00,00,00,00,00,06,37,01          ;1280x720@60....Non-interlaced  
HKR,, DTD_5,%REG_BINARY%, 00, 00, 00 ,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00     ;Fifth DTD
Installed the driver with this, it gave some notice about the validation of the driver on the way which it didn't do on last installation. Anyhow I could click "install anyway" and it did. Still, 1360*768 isn't availlable. Any ideas? Could it be restricted in the BIOS? Anyway now I have a much wider selection of resolutions in both control panel and graphics tray, problem is my LCD seems to be quite picky, so only 1360*768 would be acceptable..

You're probably right if you added it with DTDCalc and the interlaced check-box wasn't selected.

It is interesting that 15.6.1 is the driver still be offered on the Asus website (assuming I'm correct that build 1329 is 15.6.1)

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/cs-009479.htm seems to suggest it is.

Could just be laziness, could be something more

Hi Silento,

Remind me, are you one of the people that can't get your display's EDID from the Diagnostic Report?

Hi archibael, Wo0zy, and everybody else. Thanks to this thread and the utilities linked from it, I was able to add a custom 1920x1080x24fps resolution on my Q35 chipset integrated graphics (Intel DQ35JO motherboard with latest BIOS that just came out 2 days ago). I'm using Vista 64 with 15.7.3.64.1409 graphics drivers. I thought that things were working fine...

The integrated DVI is connected with a DVI-to-HDMI cable to my Sony XBR4 LCD. When I leave the computer on, and turn off the TV, and later turn the TV back on, that's when I have a problem. When I turn the tv back on, I hear three or four windows sounds similar to when you plug in or remove a usb flash thumb drive. A couple of times I've seen it come back in 800x600 mode. One time I saw it come back in 1920x1080x24 mode, and the graphics options didn't list any other modes available other than 1920x1080x24 and 1920x1080x23. It is definitely annoying.

Blu-ray and HD DVD playback is fairly good, but I do see a few dropped frames. I currently have an E6700 cpu, but will soon be getting a Q9550, so that should fix those few dropped frames.

Bazinga!

Hi gorthocar,

Nice feedback
You're no doubt aware that the resolution reset issue is being reported by several people. Unfortunately it's proving difficult to pin down any sort of pattern .

May I ask if you've installed RTM SP1 yet?

ptr727 requested feedback on an issue returning from standby so I thought I'd install it last night in order to test and so far I haven't had a reoccurrence of the resolution/ black screen issue. Admittedly it's only been 24 hours (which means a maximum of 3 tests in my case) but still promising. Also, I'm still running 15.8 drivers as well and I wouldn't recommend you update to those yet until the mystery of the missing 1080p24 timing is resolved.

You could follow archibael's suggestion and revert to 15.6.1. AFAIK nobody had this problem back then.

ptr727, I'll get to the standby testing tomorrow mate.

Hi ptr727,

Couldn't wait 'til morning.

So far I can't reproduce your problem

In fact the Sp1 and 15.8 combo seems to be behaving very well so far (fingers crossed).

Obviously I'm running a different MoBo to you so perhaps there is a BIOS issue with the DG33TL (even though the report seems fairly conclusive). Also, what version of the INF's are you running? My test system is running INF_AllOS_8.4.0.1016_PV_Intel.

If you want me to check anything else please let me know. I'll keep testing and report any change in behaviour.

Hi Wo0zy. No, I don't have Vista SP1. Is that supposed to come out this week? I don't have any of the alternate language packs installed in Vista Ultimate, so I should get it when the general population gets SP1.

Hey All,

I just recently built/configured an HTPC using the ASUS P5E-VM HDMI mobo (G35 Chipset).

I have the htpc connected via HDMI to my HD LCD TV (37", 1080i).

I'm currently having a problem with the display results. First, it was the overscan issue (at 1280x720, there were significant overscan issues, same with 1920x1080). I used DTD to have a look and tinker with the EDID values. According to DTD Calculator, my tv supported 1280x720 and 1920x1080 (which is what I figured it would).

I adjusted the overscan on the 1280x720 so that it would fit the screen. The problem now is that text looks... well. not good. Is this normal? Is there really much that can be done?

I then decided to try my luck with the 1920x1080. With this resolution, there is overscan, and there is alot of Jitteriness. It looks as though the refresh rate isn't good enough. Could his be related to the type of HDMI Cable you use? Again, I used DTD to tinker with 1920x1080 to fit it into the display. The resulting resolution was 1819x1012. However, when I apply this "new" resolution, my screen goes black and nothing comes back. I changed the A/V input with the remote to switch from HDMI to AV1 then back to HDMI and the picture is there, but it's really distorted (the top half of the desktop is shown on the bottom half of the display, and the bottom half of the desktop is shown on the top half of the display!!).

This is really strange behaviour and I can't seem to find a way around it. Does anyone have any recommendations? My TV is Philips, 37PF9631D.

Regards,

Craig

Hi Craig,

According to the specs, the 37PF9631D has a native resolution of 1366x768 so any 1080 image will be scaled by the screen. Also, according to your manual the screen only supports scaled 1080i not 1080p signals. These two factors probably explain the jitter and other problems you're having with 1080 DTD's. Feel free to post your DTD and we can have a look.

Regardless, I think you need to aim for as close as possible to the native resolution. The manual for your TV doesn't mention support for 1366x768 over HDMI, only 1280x720 (720p) so this is what I'd suggest you go with.

When you adjusted the 720p overscan did you use DTDCalc or the sliders under the "Aspect Ratio" button in the Intel Graphics Tray? In my experience the sliders (if available to you) do a better job of scaling the desktop but a custom DTD does a better job with video content. If you used DTDCalc, make sure the resolution you ended up with is exactly 16:9 and that the vertical pixel count is an even number. Again, feel free to post your DTD (if you used DTDCalc) and we can check this for you.

One final thought. Make sure you haven't selected/enabled any zoom options on the TV.

I can't see anywhere in the manual to enable PC HDMI/Exact Scan/ Just Scan unfortunately and it appears that the VGA input only supports up to 1024x768 so the options outlined above are your only choices.

Hope this helps.

Also, according to your manual the screen only supports scaled 1080i not 1080p signals. These two factors probably explain the jitter and other problems you're having with 1080 DTD's. Feel free to post your DTD and we can have a look.

Regardless, I think you need to aim for as close as possible to the native resolution. The manual for your TV doesn't mention support for 1366x768 over HDMI, only 1280x720 (720p) so this is what I'd suggest you go with.

When you adjusted the 720p overscan did you use DTDCalc or the sliders under the "Aspect Ratio" button in the Intel Graphics Tray? In my experience the sliders (if available to you) do a better job of scaling the desktop but a custom DTD does a better job with video content. If you used DTDCalc, make sure the resolution you ended up with is exactly 16:9 and that the vertical pixel count is an even number. Again, feel free to post your DTD (if you used DTDCalc) and we can check this for you.

One final thought. Make sure you haven't selected/enabled any zoom options on the TV.

I can't see anywhere in the manual to enable PC HDMI/Exact Scan/ Just Scan unfortunately and it appears that the VGA input only supports up to 1024x768 so the options outlined above are your only choices.

Hope this helps.

Hey Wo0zy,

Thanks for the informative and helpful response! I really appreciate it.

I am work right now but when I get home I'll post my DTD for all to see. Right now I am using a DTD Modified 1280x720 resolution (I believe I have it as 1216x7XX, I can't remember exactly what the resolution is). How do you ensure that your final resolution is 16:9?

For the TV, I have set it to Widescreen (no zoom)


Will definately post all DTD/EDID info when I get back home tonight.

Thanks again for all your help.

No problem

There's probably an easier way to do it but if you divide the number of horizontal pixels by 16 and then divide the number of vertical pixels by 9 you should get the same answer if the aspect ratio is exactly 16:9

For example

1920/16=120
1080/9=120

Hey Wo0zy,

Thanks for the info. I should have realized this (doh!). Easiest way I can think of doing it is say, decide on the horizontal resolution (say 1920) and then find what vertical resolution will satisfy the 16:9 ratio. That is, form the following relationship:

eg. For Horizontal Resolution 1920, what vertical resolution satisifies the 16:9 ratio requirement

16/9 = 1920/x
Solve for x
16x = 9 * 1920
16x = 17280
x = 17280/16
x = 1080

Hi all,
I was wondering if anybody had tryed or got to work 720@24p/23.9p ....this would be really usefull to me if possible as I have re-encoded many of my HD movies to 720 to save space and my projector outputs at 720p (although it accepts 1080@24p and provides silky smooth playback). The idea really is to prevent as much scaling as possible really (and also let the HTPC do the scaling with 1080p material rather than the projector!!!). Any help or light you could shed on this would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Jiff.

Hi Jiff,

It's certainly possible to create a DTD for 720p24 using DTDCalc but I don't think your PJ will accept it. You might be able to get 48Hz working though

If you want to try it, import your EDID (which you should be able to get from the Intel Diagnostic Report) into DTDCalc (using the interpret EDID tool), find the closest 720p timing (assuming there is a DTD for 720p in your EDID ) and use that to adjust the settings. If you have a 720p50 timing then a small adjustment to the pixel clock should be enough to get you to 48Hz. If your EDID doesn't have 720p listed you could use the 720p50 "standard timing" from the "drop-down" list on the calculation Tab.

I only get a black screen when connect my Toshiba 56H80 component 1080i input to G33/G31 IGP via Audio Authority 9A60 Component Transcoder. I VNC in to my computer and set the G33/G31 Screen Resolution to 1920 x 1080 and refresh rate to 30 Hertz, but nothing. Odd thing is that when I exit and restart the Intel Graphic Properties tool, the refresh rate is reading 60 Hertz, so I set it back to 30 Hertz and apply and OK. Go back, and it's reset to 60 again.

Whenever I connect an ATI card to this same setup, I just "Add 1080i30 in the Display Manager (NTSC)" and that setting gets me picture.

Is there any way to copy the working ATI settings into the DTD Calculator and thus into the registry for my G33/G31 to use?

For 1080i, refresh should be 60Hz anyway. It's 30 full frames per second, but they're divided into 60 fields per second interlaced.

What driver are you using? Have you tried 15.6.1 from the Asus website?

I do not speak officially in any sense for
Intel Corp., Technology Manufacturing Group
but I do work there.

It should be 60Hz, but 30Hz is the only setting that has ever worked on the three ATI models I've run with the 9A60+56H80 (not using PowerStrip). I'm using the 7.14.10.1409 driver. (Acer came preinstalled with 7.14.10.1283 which gave me choppy video playback, even with low CPU usage, so I used device manager to search the internet for updates.) The Intel site says version PV15.8 (7.14.10.1437) is the latest for Vista 32, is there something special about the Asus driver?

If you were to install Powerstrip on your ATi system and then find the reported information for the current config (front porch, back porch for H&V, pixel clock, etc,etc), this could be interpreted into a DTD for use within DTDCalc.

I haven't got Powerstrip installed ATM but I can do if you need help with this. If not Archibael can probably remember exactly where to look from memory.

The Asus driver is older (15.6.1) and doesn't have so many issues regarding resolutions. I know it sounds crazy but....

If you can't get an image using standard timings reported in the Intel Graphics Tray I'm not sure this it will necessarily help but you could give it a go.

Latest version of DTDCalc has the values for at-spec 1080i60.

I think you want 1080p30 if you believe the 30Hz value is the right onw. 1080i30 is half the pixel clock of spec 1080i and I don't believe your TV will actually accept it. If it did, regular component 1080i inputs from a DVD player or cable box wouldn't work.
