Defective HDMI for CPU, can anyone help?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a 40' Toshiba, 1080p, model number 40RV525RZ, and it work's great with my ps3 and cable, but recently i tried hooking up my computer to it, 9/10 times that i try to switch from ps3 to computer, i get a sort of colourful static screen instead. It is getting really annoying, it only happens when switching hdmi channels to the computer one, it does not happen when i just leave it on the right channel.

The only way i get it to work, is if i switch back and forth between input channels a few times, eventually it will work. but never on the first try, always around the fifth.

My video card is an Asus radeon hd 5770.
My computer is brand new and custom built, so i am wondering if there is any compatability issues?

I tried switching the port the hdmi cable was in, but it had no effect.
I tried making sure the resolution matched that of the TV, and it it did not work.
I tried updating my video card drivers, didn't work.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Check in the ATI Catalyt Control Center (CCC) to make sure your display card is set to 1920x1080, 60hz and no overscan on that output.

You should also set your TV to 1-1 pixel mapping. No idea what that is on Toshiba. On my Sharp it's called Dot to Dot.

Is your PC set to output over HDMI at 59Hz or 60Hz?
What is the version number of the drivers that you installed from the ATI website?

I can tell you what's wrong, but I don't know how to fix it: The HDCP encryption is not authenticating between the PC and the TV.

Possible fixes:
1) Plug the PC into a different HDMI input connector on the TV
2) Try a different/shorter HDMI cable between the TV and PC
3) Upgrade the display driver software on your PC
4) Call Toshiba tech support and ask if updated software is available for your TV

Good luck!

I will give those solutions a shot, I can tell you for sure #1 did not work, and i do have a shorter hdmi cable that i will try once it arrives.

Standard PC applications do not require HDCP so I do not believe that has anything to do with your problem.
If the ATI drivers do not provide both a 59Hz option and a 60Hz option then I do not know how to change it from 60 to 59.
Does your TV have any way to state that the sourec of the input to each HDMI connection so you can say it is from a PC?

Not that i can find, all i was able to do is switch the picture mode to PC, which i imagine only changes the contrast and brightness and such. There does not seem to be a way to tell my tv what is running into the specific hdmi ports.

Did changing the picture mode to PC have any effect on your problem?

Not at all. any other ideas? should i contact ASUS about the video card, or Toshiba about the tv?

I have no more ideas at the moment.
I suggest that you start a new thread with more information about your configuration and configuation problem in the subject.
It could be an ATI driver problem, it could be a graphics card problem, It could be a OS release level problem, it could be a TV configuration problem.
