but I'm planning on getting an HDMI tuner soon and that would throw off the other inputs connected through that piece of equipment.
well that would be a waste, use component for devices which do not require HDCP
Blu Ray, HD DVD, and upscaling DVD players are the only devices which would require HDMI
that being said, yes do not adjust the TV for the PC
you can use powerstrip to adjust the picture centering
Well, I installed 5.13 and find no difference.
as I said you will need to download the older 5.6 drivers
I enabled a hotkey for rotating the display 90 degrees to the left, and another for returning the display to normal. When I switch inputs and return to input 7, then execute the first hotkey, the pic returns. I then execute the second hotkey and I'm good.
another workaround is resolution switching
but which ever is fine
Also, 1080i has never worked (wont sync). That apparently also is a known issue with this line of cards.
thats normal for cards older than the x700 cards, you will need to use component if that is the case, of course it does not sound like your video card supports component either
your video card is definitely not supported by MCE
you will need a directx9 video card
without it MCE will not produce a quality image
