I got a RCA D56W20 56 in. TV and it supports 1080i, I connect the HTPC to the screen and the TV acts like it is the wrong res. I can view the PC but the screen bleeds over past the edge of the screen, I cannot however scroll to those points on the edge like on a PC monitor with the wrong res. I have tried Intel, Nivida, and ATI cards all with the same result. I do not have the remote for this TV to reset it to defaults.. Any help would be appreciated.


I am connecting the PC through the DVI port (which works with my XBOX 360 HDMI > DVI cable and looks great)


I have not yet tried through the component cable since I will have to buy the dongle to send component out of my video card.


any thoughts on this?

Your TV does not look like it is designed to accept a PC input. You can send it a 1080I but it will overscan it just like any other video input, cut off ~5% of the picture.


ATI and Nvidia drivers have overscan correction that should be able to fix the situation.

I found this thread..

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=947830


I was able to adapt my Acer Aspire L350 to work with this TV. However it is slightly blurry.. (I don't think I can fix this) It looks fine when playing video from Hulu or from DVD. I also upgraded the CPU to a Q6600 and am now able to play BD using an external drive. Only problem now is that the unit overheats randomly. (probably cause the cooling isn't the greatest. I might add a liquid cooled solution later, but this would mean i would need to remove all the fans from the unit.)


Anyway thanks for the help.
