i'd obviously like it to be in 1080. running windows 7, and in my resolution
settings it does show 1920x1080, but when i select it, my tv reads "invalid format". i seem to be able to run up to 1360x768 as max res on this tv. tried running hdmi directly from the pc to my tv and bypassing the amplifier, same result. any idea?
Are you plugged into the HDMI input on the TV or are you using the dedicated HD15 PC input on the TV? According to Sony it makes a difference.
I always assumed that using the DVI from the GPU to one of the HDMI-TV inputs would work best but I had resolution problems that way also same as you.
The screen did not fit the picture and I had to reduce the resolution with the custom settings to make it fit the TV screen. So I decided to actually read the directions for a change....
According to the directions that came with my Sony Bravia 52" which I just recieved two weeks ago. The first thing it said was that for a PC you need to use the PC input on the TV to gain proper resolution. This baffled me because it was the older HD15 input.
Sony also says that if you need to use an adaptor it needs to be on the PC itself, then use the HD15 to HD15 cable between the adaptor and the TV's HD15 style PC in. Resolution works out perfectly this way with no adjustments needed.
I can only assume that your TV has a dedicated PC input but it seems like most of the newer widescreen TV's have that.
