Windows 7: HD Issue

Your HDMI may still be used for your game box and sound for your PC but the VGA should solve your issues, it's basically like this with at least 90% of the TV's currently out there.

Following is from the manual.

PC IN PC input
1. Connect the PC output port in the computer to the PC port in the TV set.
2. Connect the audio cable in computer to PC AUDIO IN port in TV set.
3. Press SOURCE button to select VGA mode.
4. Turning on the computer, the screen image of the computer will display on the
TV set.
At this time, the TV set can be used as a computer display.
1. If the temperature of the TV set is rather low, it is normal that there may be some artifacts when the set is first turned on.
2. Nonconforming pixels may occur on the panel, but they have no influence on the
normal function of the display.
3. In the standard operation, it is normal if there is one bright dot or dark dot on the
VGA 640 x 480 @ 31.5kHz 60 Hz
SVGA 800 x 600 @ 37.9kHz 60 Hz
XGA 1024 x 768 @ 48.4kHz 60 Hz

Note: The above parameters are VESA standard.
So basically what youve said is that a HD TV with 2 HDMI ports and an option in the menu for full HDMI PC Input (that makes the black border bigger) doesnt support a PC that uses HDMI to the TV? That sucks!

Yep, the user manual gave an interesting hint, check this out:

(manual found online @

-When you connect this TV with a source device (DVD player, Set Top Box or PC)
supporting Auto HDMI function, the output resolution of the source device will be
automatically set to 1280x720p.
-If the source device does not support Auto HDMI, you need to set the output
resolution appropriately.
To get the best picture quality, adjust the DVD Player or Set Top Box’s output resolution
to 1280x720p, and the PC graphics card’s output resolution to 1024x768, 60Hz.

And yep, the previously posted information was found on the same user manual (check the manual page 29 -- or page 16 on the PDF file). But that is valid in case you are using the PC (analog or DVI connector, not the HDMI). For HDMI, the above applies.

I'm running a 37" Vizio, which is a full 1080P HDTV, via the VGA connection from my XFX 5870 XXX Edition and it is full screen w/o any bordering, I can use HDMI for audio, if I choose, but I run my sound card out to my Surround Sound Processor via Toslinq fiber instead. Don't shortchange the abilities via VGA, if your TV and GPU can handle the signals the VGA will deliver it.

Open Catalyst control center and go to desktop properties. In that section there are HDTV resolutions.
That is the way I do it on my 65" DLP TV to select 1920x1080 which is native for that TV. No more borders. I can also select interlaced or progressive.

Just looked there, found the HDTV resolution, set it to all of them, still get a border. Dont know how you havet got a border but I still do. I tried the VGA connection and its even worse! The best resolution I set mine to was 800x600 which was the clearest. Any higher and the text goes really REALLY fuzzy and blurred, even worse than it is in HD, infact, just looking now, I cant use any HD resolutions such as 1280x720 or 1920x1080. 1280x720 is there but whenever I select it and hit apply, my TV comes uip with No Signal and then goes back to 800x600, there isnt even an oiption for 1920x01080, the highest is 1600x1200 and that is the worst looking one, even when I select autoposition in my TV PC menu.

Right, ive worked out how to get rid of the blackborder now, by going into CCC > Display Properties > Scaling Options and scaling the desktop to fit the screen fully.

BUT whenever I launch a game, the border comes back.
