ATI Card and ST30 Plasma?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have the 55st30 and an ati 6450 gpu. My issue is im having a hard time getting 1:1 pixel mapping to my display. I tried size 1 (95% of the video signal) and size 2 (100%). My problem is when I pick size 2 I have to use catalyst software to overscan all the way because the screen does not fill up. If I use size 1 I still have to use overscan (but less).....Not sure why this is thought I left behind these issues when switching to a 1080p set. Any info is very welcomed.

EDIT: Or when I overscan to 0% with size 2 is that 1:1 pixel mapping? This is the setting I have been running and it seems to give the best picture but it just came to my attention that it is not using the full screen. Hopefully someone has a better setting I can try.

When you have overscan set to 0% and it's using the fullscreen that's 1:1 pixel mapping.

I have a Panasonic TC-L55ET5 and I remember it being a little weird to get it working, I think it was "Full", "Size 2". Not sure if the plasmas have the same menus/settings but that works with AMD CCC set to 0%. My system has a A8-3820 with HD6550D integrated GPU so it should be the same.

Thanks but the only thing I noticed is it isnt using the full screen of the plasma. It is really really hard to tell but if I load a fullscreen white background and then cycle through the zoom modes I can see that there is maybe one row of pixels on the bottom not being lit up. Again it isnt major but I worry not running all the pixels for uneven ware. Its almost like I need one more notch after 0%

I have a TC-P50S30 and use a Radeon 6570.

I have overscan set to 0% and don't see any borders.

Do you have the TV set to full or just? (Can't remember what Panasonic calls all their zoom options.)

If you have overscan compensation disabled in Catalyst, your resolution set to 1080p, and the panel set to "Full" and "HD size 2" (at least that's how it is on the 50 series), then it should fill the screen perfectly.

If you have multiple hdmi inputs then it is always good to try different inputs also. - 2 cents
