Here are the results for your suggestions.

Thanks for your help, truely appreciated. Any other suggestions?

Something's seriously wrong, there. Are you filling all the DTD_1 registry entries (there are like 12 in some cases), or just one? I ask because the last three DTDs I gave should all be 1920x1200, not 1680x1050 or 1920x1080. Seems like something isn't going right in the registry. Leave DTD_2, DTD_3, DTD_4, and DTD_5 alone; they'll be ignored anyway if TotalDTDCount is 1 (again, there could be ~12 of these; I'd modify all TotalDTDCount to 1).

If text is blurry, you're likely looking at a scaling issue (the TV is trying to scale the incoming resolution to its native rez-- 1920x1200-- and doing it poorly).

Did not comprehend that you were on a laptop; the BIOS could be refusing 1920x1200. One thing to try to verify that would be 1918x1200:

28 3C 7E A2 70 B0 23 40 30 20 36 00 00 00 00 00 00 1A 37 01

I try to utilise Archibael suggestion to eliminate overscan on my Mitsubishi65" TV using DTD Calculator on my Inspiron 1525 with Mobil Intel 965 Chipset.

When I try to write DTD which I generated into a registry by pressing "Write DTDs to Registry" button I am getting errow message:

"An unhandled error has occured and has been logged.
Click OK to continue:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Apparantly I can not create entry to a registry.

Can you help me.

Setup:
PC: Dell Studio Hybrid 140 Intel mobile 965 express chip
HDTV: Sony 57WS520
Connected: HDMI/HDMI, Have also tried DVI/HDMI with same result.
OS: Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP 1

Problem:
I can get the Display set up just how I like it but after viewing a Video through Mediaportal or XBMC the resolution of my monitor shifts creating black lines on the screen or in the corners. I have used the DTDCalc tool but one thing I noticed is that when I use the Ruler portion the right side of the screen has a slant to it. I don't know if this is related but I am completely stumped. I have tried everything I can think of and I am about to re-install as a last ditch effort.
Hopefully someone can offer advice or guidance so I can get this corrected.

Could my problem to the issue above be to the fact that my HDTV is not relaying a fixed screen sized?

Screen size.............. Undefined or variable

If so is there anyway I can force a screen size using DTDcalc or Moninfo custom .inf file?

I have not seen that error in DTDCalc before; perhaps Wo0zy can chime in with thoughts.

You can always manually enter the DTD into the registry. Tack a "37 01" onto the end of it and stuff it in all instances of DTD_1, then change all instances of TotalDTDCount to 1.

What resolution are you trying to send?

I have tried 1920x1080 and 1280x720. I used DTDcalc for custom resolution also. I can get the screen where I want it but it drifts over time and it's driving my bonkers

HI Archibael, thanks for the response.
I tried the 28 3C 7E A2 70 B0 23 40 30 20 36 00 00 00 00 00 00 1A 37 01, but that too produced 1920 X 1080. There is only one DTDTotalCount per device, and I assume Device 0 is the laptop screen, and Device 1 is the Samsung Monitor. I have made all DTD_1 changes to Device 1. I did change the DTDTotal Count on both to 1 though. I have not interferred with any of the other settings in DTD_2 through DTD_5.

Regards

Archi,
Thank you for your reply.
I did not quite understood how I can shavel manually DTD into registry.
I substituted last characters in string on "37 01" and I had only one instance of DTD to send to registry but when I pushed "Write DTDs to Registry" I got the same error message:

"An unhandled error has occured and has been logged.
Click OK to continue:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Thank you for your future answer.

Unless you're missing some DTD_1s or TotalDTDCounts (did you look manually, or search using F3?), you've exceeded my area of expertise. I'm at a loss. Putting a new DTD in should either produce no effect or produce the correct resolution. It shouldn't produce something random like 1080p.

Thank you for your future answer.

Again, I don't understand why that would happen with DTDCalc... although "37 01" should only be added if you're adding the DTD through regedit. If you're adding that in DTDCalc I can see problems.

Wo0zy?

Sorry. Been tied up with work.

Last time I saw one of Paul's app's produce an error like that it was on a Vista PC with a DotNet installation problem. The fix was to manually download the latest patch for DotNet version 2. It wasn't DTDCalc but one of our VMC DVD library apps but the info may point vobekk in the right direction.

BTW a new version of DTDCalc is immanent. Just testing it now. Will PM you once I get the release notes.

Thanks, Wo0zy,
The direction you pointed me I did not understand.
But I found that I had DTD calc v1.00 and although I changed it to v1.02 I am still getting the same result:
"An unhandled error has occured and has been logged.
Click OK to continue:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Will put all my hope on "imminent" latest DTD calc release and a little bit on your assistance as well, guys.
Thanks a lot.

I suspect you'll have the same problem with the new version although it may be using DotNet 3 so perhaps not (I'll check with Paul).

Check Windows Update for anything DotNet Framework related. If nothing comes up go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en download and install. The service pack is also listed at the bottom of the page. Get that too (that may well be the issue).

Edit. Just a thought. You are right clicking the DTDCalc shirtcut and selecting "run as administrator"? This only applies if you're running Vista.

Thanks again, Wo0zy,

1. In my Vista Home Premium I always run DTDcalc as administrator.

2. I tried to install DotNet Patch you reccomended - the system said it is already installed and system rechecked it again - installed.
But result in using DTDCalc the same error message after pressing "Write DTDs to Registry":
"An unhandled error has occured and has been logged.
Click OK to continue:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

3. I hope you can help me to input DTD I was able to generate from EDID TV and via Tuning tab precisely for my TV. Take a look:

Never seen DTDCalc produce this error and neither has the guy that developed it so I'm out of ideas I'm afraid.

To manually add you need to do three things

1. Make sure you add "37 01" to the end of your calculated DTD.

2. Search the registry for all instances of "TotalDTDCount" and change the values for each to 1.

3. Search the registry for all instances of "DTD_1" and change the values to your calculated DTD.

There will be several entries for each and only some matter but change them all anyway.

Hope that helps.

In the Intel Graphics Tray, do you have "Keep Aspect Ratio" or "Full Screen"? What do you mean when you say "change the TV back to 16:9"?

hi, i cant find those options.

What i mean is in the samsung menu i have to following options:

size: 16:9, wide zoom, zoom, 4:3, just scan

if i choose 16:9 i have overscan
if i choose just scan then i have no overscan..

but with just scan i get the illegible letters

thanks for helping

Just scan is what you want on the Samsung.

On the Intel Graphics Tray, under Display Settings, I have a "Display Expansion" section, although I had thought it was called "Aspect Ratio" in other versions of the drivers. Either way, tweaking that should mess with the scaling. Don't know why you'd be getting scaling with the drivers set to 1080p, though.

I have exactly the same problem with my Toshiba 42" 10bit LCD.
There's an ExactScan option, means pixel to pixel.

After clean install of Vista 32 and then 1608 Intel drivers I get terrible fonts.
Switching TV to Wide overscales picture and make fonts a bit better but still almost unreadable.

This must be a fairly new occurence, then. The G965 board looked perfect on 1080p. Something's telling the graphics drivers to scale. Unfortunately, as I am not running Vista, it's harder for me to help you. Is there a setting like "Panel Fitting" or something similar?

Yes, there's AspectRatio Option under Intel graphics properties, which gives to adjust an overscaled screen with no problem. Fonts are better but still not intact.
And the biggest problem is that after overscale adjustment, if the TV set on Off and On with working PC, Vista gives fatal error of Windows Explorer.
So, staying with ExactScan and terrible fonts meanwhile.
Forget to say, I have G35 board.

Did see a bug (supposedly solved in a driver release) of something which was inadvertently scaling then scaling again, even when it was the right resolution to begin with. Have you tried a different driver-- earlier or later?

Yes I have. Same thing.
What's interesting that 1920x1080P 50Hz listed in Intel properties supported resolutions, but if I run TV Wizard it recognizes my FHD LCD as 720P and put 1280x720 perfectly scaled in ExactScan.

Hello

I apologize in advance if this may be slightly off-topic, but you guys seem to know the ins and outs of various custom settings of the Intel GMA hardware. My problem is getting the D945GCLF2 motherboard to output composite video via the 7-pin. S-Video works fine, but the manual also states:

Quote:


The board supports S-Video output via a 7-pin back panel connector that provides both 4-pin S-Video and a Composite Video signal.

(Bold emphasis by me)

However, the non S-Video pins seem to be dead and I get no composite signal on those pins. The driver settings offer no option to switch from S-Video to composite (only displaying that the driver is currently switched to S-Video output) and I'm guessing now that I just need to set a hidden registry flag or key to switch from S-Video to a composite signal. I don't mind getting my hands dirty, so could someone please tell me what I need to change in the registry to achieve the desired result?

PS: Yes, I already tried the 470pf capacitor 'trick'. But the quality looked inferior to a native composite signal.

PPS: The Intel TV-Wizard is avaliable on the D945GCLF2 setup CD - although it doesn't seem to work (yet?) with this board: everyone who tried it got an error about "not having the right components". Which is a bit of a shame, because looking trough the language files of the wizard it does seem to support the setting of S-Video or composite signal.

Please help me with this if you can. I really tried everything so far but still no luck...

I don't think TVWizard ever worked with the 945 chipset of any sort.

Typically the composite vs Svideo decision is made by the chipset autodetecting which pins on the 7-pin connector are giving a 75Ohm termination-- if it's just the Y and C pins, it goes to Svideo, but if the CVBS pin is the only one connected it goes to composite.

I was never able to get any sort of registry tweak to work to select between composite, Svideo, or component on my Prolink SDVO board; I had to yank a resistor off to get the proper resistance since the design was buggy.

Interesting, thanks

So you're basically saying that it should switch to composite if the right pins are connected? It didn't seem to work with my 7pin cable I bought, but maybe it wasn't set to the right pins...

I think I will try again with a cable I soldered myself. From this back panel picture: https://www.logicsupply.com/blog/wp-.../d945gclf2.jpg
Which pins are the ones which carry the composite signal?

I'd have to ohm it out myself with the cable I have. I'll try to get that done at home soon.

Hi folks,

This utility looks promising, but I'm fairly confused about what I need to do. I've got a Dell Studio Hybrid (GMA965/X3100) plugged into a Sharp LC-19SB14U via HDMI. It seems that the Sharp is pretty stupid, because it's giving out nonsense over HDMI, like that its native resolution is 1080i. According to Sharp this is a 1366x768 panel. The display works set to 1280x720, but it's obviously being scaled as all the text looks like crap. Is there any way I can use DTDCalc to force this thing into native resolution?

Here's the output of the Intel driver:
