Blurry picture on Monitor

#21DetectiveZ(Topic Creator)Posted 8/26/2014 8:02:13 PM
Don't currently have a VGA cable on me, was going to use a DVI cable, but my monitor doesn't seem to have a slot to put it in.

I'll probably try and see if I can find a VGA cable tomorrow, the text is really starting to strain my eyes.

Thanks everyone for the help, hopefully I'll be able to fix this tomorrow.

Is your TV set to game mode? That'll turn off all the extra processing features that may be messing up the picture. If not, try manually turning off every picture setting that can be turned off (dynamic contrast, pure white, DNIe, etc).

If you could post some pictures of every image adjustment your TV has it would help a lot. Only other thing I could think of is trying a bunch of different resolutions that you haven't tried yet. I once had a TV that was 1366x768, but would only display a proper PC image if you used 1360x768.

Ah, finally found it.
The TV had a hidden menu.
I have no idea why someone would program a hidden menu to adjust the settings. ._.
I'll play around with it, but I think this is the manual for the tv.

The bleached out look might be due to your video card being set up to output a RGB signal but the TV is setup to receive a ycbcr444 signal, which is the standard digital color format for TV media. Try switching to the ycbcr444 color format in your graphics card setting..

I don't think a setting like this would be on a cheap offbrand TV but if possible look for a setting that lets you change the TVs color format to RGB as RGB would be more ideal for PC viewing..

Changing it doesn't do much, it still doesn't change the colours.
I managed to turn overscan H Size and V Size to 0, which makes it fit into the screen.
But now, it only fills in a 2/3rds over the whole TV.
(Black bars between both sides)
I can sorta fix it by changing the aspect ratio on my TV, but that still keeps everything blotched and blurry.

Only other thing I can come up with is that the HDMI inputs on your TV weren't designed to take input from a PC.. The VGA input might be the designated PC connection.. They use to have a dedicated PC inputs on old TVs where that was the only input that would receive a PC signal and that dedicated input was usually the VGA input..

Even newer TVs do this but the dedicated PC input usually ends up being another HDMI input
#29DetectiveZ(Topic Creator)Posted 8/26/2014 10:50:05 PM
Yeah, there's a PC input slot (VGA) for the TV.
I think it is that. Tried the HDMI input on my other monitor and it worked the exact same.

Oh well, I guess I'll try to find a VGA cable or just buy one tomorrow.
Thanks everyone for helping!

That means you're using the wrong resolution, then.

But yeah, a VGA cable should fix everything. As you've found out, sending a PC signal to a TV via HDMI is a major PITA.
