Gray lines - not bars - with HTPC & Samsung Plasma

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Greetings all.

I have a bit of an issue with my HTPC setup. Whenever my PC sends native resolution (1366x768) to my Samsung HP-R5052 plasma, there is one thin gray line on both the left and right (horizontal) sides of the screen. Guesstimating, I'd say that the lines are approximately a few pixels wide; about half a centimeter or less.

If my PC is sending a non-native resolution image to the screen, then the lines go away. The lines are not present with any of my other input devices (SD cable, HD cable, DVD), but are present with all of the three different computers I've tested.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, as this is really annoying in dark scenes, it really takes away from the cleanliness of an image.

You know that awesome feeling you get when you are having a problem with your equipment, you search the web, and find someone else that describes the EXACT same problem you are having? Then the feeling is stepped on and squished when you realize that the other poor chap's post is over a year old and no one ever replied.

That's me, I'm having the exact same problem as described above with a 1080i Samsung plasma. I just build my HTPC yesterday and this is really bumming me out.

Here is the list of my relavent equipment:

TV: Samsung 50" 1080i Plasma (HP-T5054)
AV reciever: Pioneer VSX-1019AH

HTPC:
Home build with Windows 7 Ultimate
MB: Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H
Proc: Intel i3-530

The HTPC is connected the the AV Reciever via HDMI and the resolution is set to 1360x768.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure you read the PC chapter of your Samsung user's manual to find out what resolutions it will accept over what interface and any other information that might resolve problems you may be having.
If going through a a/v receiiver make sure you have everything working correctly with the a/v receiver bypassed before you reconnect it.
