I am about to rip my hair off!!


DVI-VGA connector words perfectly fine connecting my PC to my SONY 32" 32S2000 720p TV using a 9600GT graphic card on Windows Vista x64.


Today I bought a DVI to HDMI cable and connected it. Windows is unable to recognize 720p!! any resolution higher than 1280x720 will be treated with 30Hz refresh rate max which makes it interlaced!!

Even 1080i on 30Hz seems jaggy and the text is not clear (i am not talking about font size, i am talking about how clear the letter itself).


Whats the solution to this problem?

I tried:

- updating to latest nvidia driver.

- back to an older driver

- use the 2nd DVI port on the graphic card.

- search for solutions


If this problem is solved already on this forum plz link me to solutions.

If not... plz help me!!!

When you say any resolution higher than 1280x720 displays interlaced do you mean that 1280x720 works? Because that is 720p. Are you trying to hit 1366x768? Some TV's cannot accept that resolution over HDMI as it is not a valid ATSC resolution and they expect only CE devices not PC's to hook up via HDMI.

Yes I need to reach 1366x720 to get the max my TV can output.


What do u mean? I have no chance connecting via HDMI?

Will DVI-component work then?

I found some interesting info regarding 1366 X 768 resolution vs 720p / 1080p...

(http: separated from link, due to forum restrictions)
// hd1080i.blogspot.com/2006/12/1080i-on-1366x768-resolution-problems.html


So, I have a question too:


What kind of picture quality is to be expected running 1366 X 768 (i.e "PC" 720p) into a TV with only VGA input for PC?


I'm in a similar dilemma as OP. I need to connect my new HTPC to the TV. It's 2 HDMI inputs are already in use.

I could get an HDMI switch, but would then have to reduce resolution to 1280 X 720? Or no?


I would much rather just use the PC input, and avoid the switch, but am concerned about whether I will truly get Blu-Ray quality from the analog VGA connection.


Also, is better to run PC VGA to VGA input... or DVI w/dongle to VGA input?


thanks, in advance
