Hi all,


I got my Panasonic TH50PHD6UY and I'm finally getting around to connecting one of my computers to it. I know the native resolution of my screen is 1366x768 and that I need to use Powerstrip to achieve this resolution.


Does anybody have this monitor and have a computer connected to it using Powerstrip? I'm hoping someone can share the timings they're using to get the native resolution.


I'm currently using a GF4 card, but I'm getting an ATI Radeon 9800XT.


Thanks,

Greg

Here is a link http://www.entechtaiwan.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=394 and here is another http://www.entechtaiwan.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=313


I have it and running on the default ATI 1368X768 ATIHD res. You will not be able to get actual 1366 on ATI and the rest of the so called "vga" compatible cards (you have to use multiple of 8). If you want true 1366, then Mtrox P650 (I think that is the model #) will let you set the res to 1366, I do not have it and do not know if it would work.

I am glad it worked out.

When you say "it is working great" I am assuming that you had to set the Panny to "full" mode to fill up the screen. I am working on resolving that issue, I would like to have the entire screen painted in normal mode.


When you get your ATI, make sure to download the new Cat drivers, 4.1


Will let you know if I get full screen in "normal" mode on the Panny, I have the ATI 8500DV driving the display through VGA. May be this issue is specific only to this card.

I've had the monitor for a week. Radeon 9700 Pro over DVI-out. Driver 6.14.10.639 dated 9/30/2003. Below are a couple Powerstrip settings I've been satisfied with. I think the 1280x720 gave the best result playing DVD movies. The rates ~equate to the "750" signal of the TY42TM6D DVI card. These settings leave the monitor with small bars (0.5") on the sides (artifacts of the software player?), and bars of 2.5" top and bottom, playing LOTR, full-mode. Playing movies in other scales such as "Monsters Inc." exhibit smaller t/b bars which can be adjusted out acceptably with the monitor's controls. The 1360x768 setting leaves somewhat larger bars around the picture. I set it up as close as I could to the [email protected] signal of the TY42 card. Acceptable, though I think the 1280x gives a significantly better result for movies. I've experimented with a number of other Powerstrip settings, trying to match TM6D specs for other rates, without much luck. Trying to hit the 1080i spec (so switching to interlaced) was particularly messy. Couldn't seem to get the Powerstrip recovery keys to work. I ended up disconnecting the Panny and reconnecting my primary LCD to get a display back so I could restore Windows (and lost a DLL entry point in the process - still gotta fix that...). Got lots to learn! So will be interested to continue reading what others discover with this monitor.


cheers,
