Sorry if this doesn't belong in this forum, but am hoping one of you fine HTPC folks have the same TV I do and can reassure me before I hook my PC to it.


As the subject mentions, I have a Sony KF-60WE610 LCD HDTV. It has a DVI input and I have recently purchased a PC with DVI out that will project at every resolution from 1920x1080 on down. The PC's video card specifically indicates it will be friendly via DVI with any HDCP device. The Sony manual states "Can accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP) to other devices (such as digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The DVI-HDTV input terminal is compliant with the EIA 861 standard and is not intended for use with personal computers."


I've read users of other TVs indicate that they hooked up their PC regardless of this indication from the TV manufacturer, but I wanted to check before I purchase the cables and DVI switch I will need to hook all this up and also don't want to damage my TV.


All help and advice appreciated.

I had a similar question that I posted and as you can see I got no response:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=457646


Anyhow, my videocard(nVidia gf4 Ti 4400) that I used although with DVI out is probably without HDCP, I tried it with my slightly newer model Sony(WE620) and can only get the 1280x720 to work with a bit overscan. nVidia's driver allows for easy adjustment to solve that problem, but I can't get any higher res to work without some crazy flickering, and it even flickers at some lower res in other environment like in game as well...

This question has been asked over and over, and has been answered over and over.


TV manufactures print that in their manuals so they don't get swamped by technical support calls. Call them up and they will say "No" and hangup.


Both of you really need to read the REVISED: Custom Resolution Guide for 1080i HDTV-HTPC-POWERSTRIP-RADEON


I still can't figure out for the life of me why that thread was removed from being a sticky. :confused:

will the timing information in powerstrip work with nVidia's own advance timing function? or the use of powerstrip is required? Also what happens with desktop res is different from say in game res? how do you account for that?

Hahleq and RacingManiac, since you have a digital television you need to find out what it's native resolution is and feed it nothing but that to avoid it's internal scaler as your HTPC is much better.


Use PowerStrip to set the rez you need then run custom resolutions in the native resolutions timing.


For more info read the second half of this
