Windows 7: VGA / HDMI issue on HDTV

VGA / HDMI issue on HDTV


I'm using:
  • AMD 64 3700+ with ATI Radeon HD 4670
  • A HDTV Samsung 40" LE40A656 as my computer display
The TV connected to my PCs using XP or Vista work fine (1920x1080) through the VGA cable but via HDMI the text is fringing and image quality is poor. No big deal, I just use the VGA cable.

ISSUE: Since I updated my HP from Vista to Windows 7 RC the TV can't display the PC at all - "mode not supported". It works with the HDMI cable though but the quality is as poor (I can barely work on it) as it is on XP or Vista.

Is there a fix? Should I wait for an update of 7 RC or do I need to reinstall Vista?

Try using the reccomended resoultion when connected through an HDMI. That solved it for me. mine is running 1360 X 768 now I know its not 1920 X 1080 which would be great but it looks alot better with the reccomended res. The Pic is Very clear and Sharp.
