How can I display Hi-Res (1280X720) PC DVI-A output over my Toshiba 26HL83 26" HD LCD Television's DVI-D (HDCP) input?


It will only display 640X480.

You can't. One is analog, the other is digital.

Robert


Then why does 640X480 work over a DVI-D cable?

Does your Toshiba have a 15-pin D-sub (standard computer monitor analog VGA) connector for PC input ?


What is the output/cable from your PC's video card ? (some have analog VGA outputs only, some have DVI-I for providing either analog/digital)


Why would you want to display 648 x 480 ? My 4-year old kids have video games that don't even request that low a resolution.

Mario,


No, just a DVI-D HDCP inout- it's a Toshiba 26" widescreen LCD HD Ready TV.


My nVidia has both VGA & DVI outputs.


SInce it does do 640X480, why won't it do a higher resolution, includig 1280X720 the native res of teh panel?

Murray,

Are you able to display PC output on the Toshiba through the nVidia card's DVI output at 640 x 480 ?


If so, you probably aren't far from getting native resolution.

Yes, I can.


But, all other resolutions fail to pain the display.


I have Powerstip, but, I am not sure what help it can be in this instance.

When you say it won't do anything higher than 640x480, do you mean it doesn't work, or you're unable to select a different resolution in Windows? If Windows doesn't know the monitor type, I believe it defaults to 640x480 only - you need to change the monitor type to get more resolution options. I would guess that you need Powerstrip to do 1280x720.

I would also think that the only way you would get 1280 x 720 would be with Powerstrip. That's a very non-standard resolution for PC video cards.


I would go with djs's statements, since I wouldn't expect the HDCP issue to come into play for all but one resolution.


Let us know what happens if you try other resolutions.
