Hello!! This is my first post on this forum. As the topic suggests, this is a question related to DVI to HDMI.
SHARP, DVI to HDMI loss of quality
I just bought a new SHARP 32Ē HDTV Ė exact model number is LC32SH2OU Ė and it my first HDTV ever, so my knowledge is very limited. My first question, is SHARP a good brand? I was speaking with a sales rep. at Best Buy for a while, and he told me that SHARP and some other brand, I think it was Toshiba or something, were the only two companies that actually manufacture the HDTV panels. All other companies buy their panels from these two. Is this true? Also, if anyone knows, is my actual HDTV any good? Iíve heard some complaints about a crappy contrast ratio, but Iím not all too sure if that even matters to me. Hereís a link to it on the FutureShop website, it wasnít on BestBuy's anymore: http://www.futureshop.ca/...S10073953&catid=
My second question is with regards to a DVI to HDMI connection. I currently have the TV hooked up to my PC using an DVI to HDMI cable. When I first did this, the resolution was at 1280 x720, and it looked great. But Iím a fiend for high resolution, and when I saw I could get up to 1920 x 1080, I did it right away. But as soon as I did this, there was a huge difference in the image. Now, any window I view on the HDTV flickers, as well as any text on the screen. It looks similar to that of a CRT when it is operating at a low frequency. Currently, the HDTV shows up a generic default plug and play monitor, and is operating only at 60Hz :( thatís horrible I think. Is there any way to fix this problem? My video card is a NVidia GeForce 6600GT if that helps any.
Well, Iíll leave up to you guys, thanks for any information or help you can give me.
