Yet Another HDTV Question

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Michael David Garrison, Oct 21, 2004.

  1. I recently got a Syntax Group's Olevia 27" for use as my primary monitor;
    I'm outputting the DVI out from my AIW9700Pro to the DVI-In on the monitor,
    and I've got WinXP running in 1280x720 mode. (Latest Catalyst drivers,
    latest Windows updates, &c.)

    Everything looks great at that resolution, but the monitor's manual suggests
    that there may be higher resolutions available. To the best of my
    knowledge, the monitor is capable of true 1080i, which to my untutored mind
    implies a true 1920x1080 pixel range.

    In a section in the manual on the VGA source, it looks like the monitor is
    capable of up to 1280x960; using DVI as the source looks even better -- up
    to 1400x788 (the manual refers to this mode as 'JVC_0.7_16:9').

    Does anyone have any experience getting higher-than-1280x720 resolutions
    across the DVI path?

    TIA (and an additional request, I've futzed with PowerStrip so much, if
    there's a solution that involves it, could you give a hint about where to
    put all the necessary values? Many thanks on that one, lol!)

    If so, you already have it at the native resolution and that's where it will
    look best.

  3. Hi,

    That's the TV set, alright -- and I think you're right, 1280x720 is the best
    I'm going to get out of it... thanks for the reference and the info!
