I have an ancient ATI 7500 video card, but it's going to have to do until I get my house sold. I have a Samsung LN46A550 that I'm trying to a good resolution with.


The problem is that the TV will only accept 4:3 resolutions and then stretches them to fill the 16:9 space. I have the TV set to 16:9 in all modes.


Even though the owner's manual gives 16:9 resolutions as acceptable resolutions, the TV gives an error of 'mode not recognized'.


I'd love to display 1360x768 but of course full 1080 would be great. What am I doing wrong?


I've attached the display settings page from the Owner's manual.


Thanks for all of the help,

Neuner

you need to run the native resolution of the tv. which in your case is 1920 x 1080.

you need to suck it up and get a new video card for $50. Come on, after spending the cash on the TV, you didn't spend another 50-100 for the video card?


I'm not trying to sound too harsh, but come on!

First off, I totally understand the tight budgeting.


However, last year I went nuts trying to get my NVIDIA 6150 onboard to play my HD files with my brand new Samsung 5265F LCD TV until I gave in and bought a 8500GT and everything.. just worked.


After buying such an expensive TV, I really had to cut back on all expenses big time. However, in retrospect, the amount of frustration and time I had spent wrestling with the subpar onboard video was not worth the money I was trying to save.


Good luck!

I'm waiting for my house to sell so I can get a new all-around HTPC with BD. I'm not going to blow $50 in the meantime just to get it to work for now. I got more important things to worry about. Since I don't have my HomeTheater setup anymore I thought I would try and give this a whirl.


If you believe it's the video card that is causing the problem then at least I have my answer and I can deal with not using the htpc at all. It's no big deal for me to wait until I can totally re-vamp my htpc.


I was able to get my Sharp DT-500 to display 720p with it so I'm wondering why I can't get the LCD to at least do the same.


Actually, anyone want to buy a very nice home in O'Fallon, MO?
