My TV claims native resolution of 1280x1080 and I'm having troubles connecting computer to Component Input of that TV becouse PowerStrip and Windows does not seems to recognize 1280x1080 as valid resolution. Any ideas what shall I do to be able to hookup computer to this TV? I have GeForce 6600 which connects to TV via DVI-Component video cable.

You wouldn't want to run at 1280x1080 on Windows because that's not a 16:9 resolution, even if the set would take it, which I doubt it will. Try feeding the TV 1080p (1920x1080) to start with.

I've hooked the tv up to my computer via hdmi. It takes 1080i/p or 720p without a problem. Just set it to 1:1 pixel mapping (zoom mode 2) and you won't lose the edges. The higher the resolution, the better your video card/computer needs to be to play hd content.


I have a monoprice hdmi switch that I use to use to switch between the tv and a 1080p monitor in the room with the pc. That makes it a little easier to work on than using the tv from 10 feet away.


My only real problem I have is hdmi audio from the video card which I can't get to work.

just because it has hdmi doesnt mean its carrying the audio, espcially out of a video card, you will more than likely have to get a sound card with optical out and use an optical cable from the sound card to TV
