Well the most obvious thing to check first is your resolution. Are you sure your PC is set to 1920x1080
Once you've verified that, right click an empty spot on the desktop and open AMD Catalyst Control Center
. Then click on Preferences
and enable Advanced View
. On the left you should see your projector. I forgot the exact terminology, but it should be called something like "HDMI display" or "HDMI TV". Click on that and within one of the menus that dropped down (I think it's called "Properties") there should be a color mode setting. You want to change that from "4:2:2" to 4:4:4 (Full RGB)
. That should fix your picture quality issues. Also while you're in CCC, go into the Display Color
settings and reset everything to the middle. Color Temperature
should be at 6500K
. Try toggling the EDID
checkbox to see if that improves anything as well.
If that doesn't work, look inside the projector's menu for a setting that changes the HDMI color range. You want that set to RGB
Lastly, try connecting via VGA instead of HDMI. Some projectors don't know how to handle a PC input via HDMI. Don't worry about what badshah said. So long as you're using a decent cable and the VGA clock and phase are set correctly (you can check that here
), the image quality will be fine.
As for audio, what connection are you using? Are you playing the audio through HDMI, or are you hooking up your headphones/speakers directly to the green-colored jack on the back? If it's HDMI, then you probably have a bad cable. Also, make sure you're using a High Speed
, there isn't a way to tell simply by looking at it.
