Tried everything you suggest.
I know one work-around: I can install the Catalyst Control Console
Didn't want to go there. May not becuse my BluRay plat is ok through PowerDVD.
I can live with the reduced screen.... :\
Ok., I'll try your suggestion.
Thought removing my video card too.
What I tried was plugging in a BluRay Player into the same MDMI port on my TV, that didn't help.
The BluRay Play played edge to edge and the TV reports the HDMI port as HDMI, not PC.
But when I plugged the PC back in, the TV went baCk to PC label on the port.
PowerDVD 12 plays edge to edge, buy my Windows Desktop is not edge to edge.
Didn't used to be, my Windows Desktop used to be edge to edge.
Last night we unplug the HMDI cable from my HTPC and plugged into my daughter's laptop to watch a movie on her hard drive.
(all with power off on all devices)
This morning when I booted my HTPC, the screen on the TV is wrong and the fonts are wrong.
The screen won't fill border to border and the fonts aren't clear.
I have the HTPC plugged directly into my TV via HMDI and I have the HDMI port setup on my Sony KDL-46XBR6 as "BD" (Blue Ray)
This worked great until...
Interesting enough. When directly connected to my TV, the BluRay player reports 1080P. Yet, when connected to my Receiver it reports 720P.
So the HDMI talk-back between the Receiver and BluRay is different.
I can force 1080P through the BluRay menu. Right now it's on HDMI Auto.
That did the trick! My colors are good direct connect to my TV.
So now what?
Is it my receiver? I went into the TV menu and labled the HDMI every label in the Sony TV and no change in color.
It seems if I go through my receiver I get less than favorable results in BluRay. DVD is fine.
I plan to do that, and if it works, my setup will get messy.
I guess I can go
Video - BR to TV via HDMI
Audio - TV to Receiver via Fiber Optic....messy
I'll try it.
Also, I plan hook it up to my Bedroom TV too.
TV - Sony KDL-46XBR6
Receiver - Yamaha HTR-6140
BluRay - Dynex DX-WBRDVD1
BluRay --> HDMI Receiver --> HDMI--> TV
I usually play BluRay with my HTPC, but it is in the shop because my BluRay colors aren't good.
So I bought an inexpensive player for two reasons: 1. to play movies while my HTPC is in the shop 2. to see if the colors are bad on it too.
The colors are bad on player too.
I'm using a 8 foot HDMI cable to my receiver. Could that be the...
What video card are you using?
I suspected my BD Player when in fact it was the video card and driver.
I have Liteon Blu-Ray drive and I tried a LG and the problem did not go away.
I went to a dedicated Sound Card, off loading the sound from my video card, and every problem went away.
If you aren't using a video card, then this tip won't help.
But if you are, try this.
See if your Blu-Ray Player software lists your video card and mother board sound chip as...
I can now play all media without problems.
Windows 7 64 Home
ATI 5750 - HDMI Out to Yamaha Receiver
AMD Athlon II X4 640
Antec Case - Viris
Had many problems with initial setup. This forum helped with the Sony TV issue - I had to Label my HDMI port to "Receiver" to get smooth Blu-Ray play.
Still I had a few Blu-Ray issues. One new Blu-Ray release of Star Wars wouldn't play well. The Ice Planet episode had weird...
