Has anyone noticed any problems with the tv when hooking up their pc which was not correctable?
And will toshiba be shipping any other dlp's which will support a pc?
Has anyone been able to get 1:1 pixel ratio with their pc and this set?
If you read thru this thread from the start you will find my (and others)
adventures along thease lines. To make a long story short. You can connect
the hdmi input to the DVI output of a PC. The issues are:
Some kind of processing is still enabled during HDMI input which results
in an acceptable but not 1:1 mapping of pixels. Fine text has some artifacts.
If your MAIN use is a computer monitor look elsewhere. If you want to use the
computer input as a way to run a front end i.e MYHTPC it is no probelm. I also
get Superb results running the MyHD capture card for HD and DVD playback.
Others has had good results using the component inputs for PC input
but of course there is still no 1:1 pixel mapping.
This monitor also has the same aprox 5% overscan issue as other HD
monitors and some people have had difficulity finding a video mode setting
to fit the desktop on the screen w/o overscanning the toolbar ....etc. I have
had good luck with certain leaked Nvidia drivers (read this thread).
From across the room with slightly increased text size this monitor works
fine for computer input. Given that I spend 95% of the time watching the
wonderfull HD picture I am all in all delighted to own my 52hm84.
There is another (more expensive) version of this monitor just around the
corner (HX series) which has 2 HDMI inoputs and other added feautures.
It will be interesting to see if this issue is addressed.
