sorry to zombify this thread but Packet a friend of mine told me that his was doing the same thing from his video card because his screen wasn't digital and the hdmi was sending it out as digital...
can this happen?
he send me out a HDMI to VGA that he bought to fix the problem...
lets hope he is right.
