Hi,


New here and hoping one of you could possibly help me out.


I have an older model LG LCD tv, model 37LF65. One of the HDMI outputs stopped working last year, and now I have an issue with the remaining one.


When using it as a display for my pc it will not display in full HD (1920x1080), even though it has in the past and is able to.


If I lower the resolution on my PC to 1280x720 it does work.


At first I thought it was something with my new receiver but even when plugged directly into the TV it wont display at 1080.


What could be wrong, and is it an easy/inexpensive fix. Or am I looking at buyiing a new TV? My girlfriend is hoping the former, I wouldn´t mind the latter



Any help is greatly appreciated!

Are you sending your 1920x1080 native resoluiton TV 1080i/60, 1080p/24, or 1080p/60 over HDMI. If not 1080i/60 try that since almost all/ if not all HDMI inputs accept 1080i/60 and many do not accept 1080p/60.

Sorry for the quite possibly stupid question ;-) But the 24/60 is thhat the frames per second? Not sure how I change that on my graphics card on the computer.... And the same goes for i or p, which I assume stands for interlaced and progressive?


Will have to look into it. Any further help is appreciated!

i = interlaced, p=progressive your graphics card may be able to output and your TV may be able to accept any of the 3 over HDMI. Best to try 1080i/60 first.

1080i/60 is 30 frames per second and 1080p/24 and 1080p/60 are 24 and 60 frames per second.

All graphics cards are not the same, read your card and O/S display instructions for details.

Not sure I quite understand. I can´t see anywhere that I can change the number of frames/second, only the refresh rate.


And I tried running interlaced on my computer screen but it keeps telling me that it isn´t supported.


I have an Nvidia GT430, with a Benq 2420HD monitor.
