Default Re: PC on my TV, question.

as far as i remembered hdmi only did 1920x1200 (1920x1080 mostly.. due to tv's!)

but maybe i'm wrong.. i'll check it out in a min.. i ain't doing squat at work

and ya.. on regular tv.. not even clear type can help out with text....


and as i've said previously.. hdmi and dvi are the same thing.. just hdmi has audio capability

EDIT

apparently there is a type of HDMI that does 2560x1600 now.. guess its been a wihle since i've really looked into it!

HDMI version 1.0–1.2a 1.3+
Maximum signal bandwidth (MHz) 165 340
Maximum TMDS bandwidth (Gbit/s) 4.95 10.2
Maximum video bandwidth (Gbit/s) 3.96 8.16
Maximum audio bandwidth (Mbit/s) 36.86 36.86
Maximum Color Depth (bit/px) 24 48[A]
Maximum resolution over single link at 24-bit/px[B] 19201200p60 25601600p75
Maximum resolution over single link at 30-bit/px[C] N/A 25601600p60
Maximum resolution over single link at 36-bit/px[D] N/A 1920x1200p75
Maximum resolution over single link at 48-bit/px[E] N/A 19201200p60

i still think dvi has the edge... seeing here
[edit] Digital
Minimum clock frequency: 25.175 MHz
Maximum clock frequency in single link mode: Capped at 165 MHz (up to 3.96 Gbit/s)
Maximum clock frequency in dual link mode: Limited only by cable quality (up to 7.92 Gbit/s)
Pixels per clock cycle: 1 (single link) or 2 (dual link)
Bits per pixel: 24 (single and dual link) or 48 (dual link only)
Example display modes (single link):
HDTV (1920 1080) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (139 MHz)
UXGA (1600 1200) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (161 MHz)
WUXGA (1920 1200) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (154 MHz)
SXGA (1280 1024) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (159 MHz)
WXGA+ (1440 x 900) @ 60 Hz (107 MHz)
WQUXGA (3840 2400) @ 17 Hz (164 MHz)
Example display modes (dual link):
QXGA (2048 1536) @ 75 Hz with GTF blanking (2 170 MHz)
HDTV (1920 1080) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (2 126 MHz)
WQXGA (2560 1600) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (2 174 MHz) (30-inch (762 mm) Apple, Dell, Gateway, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)
WQXGA (2560 1600) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (2 135 MHz) (30-inch (762 mm) Apple, Dell, Gateway, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)
WQUXGA (3840 2400) @ 33 Hz with GTF blanking (2 159 MHz)

i'm not sure about hdmi refresh rates.. but i'm seeing some nice ones here in these lists

i'd just say dvi = hdmi

but i guess for home entertainment.. hdmi makes things loads easier and requires less cabling..

so i guess this whole talk was pointless and hdmi > dvi.. hahahaha

HDMI>DVI

HDMI can do Surround Sound as well as all other audio. DVI can only do Video. That is why HDMI beats DVI. If DVI did audio as well then they would be equal. but since it doesn't HDMI edges it out.

His card does not have HDMI so the DVI to HDMI will only support video not audio from his PC. He will need a audio source too.

did topic starter ever post his tv info?

edit: as for the hdmi/dvi talk...i've also heard hdmi will be better for refresh rate then dvi. Never tested it myself though

edit: that cable you are using will have horrible video quality compared to what you are using with your computer monitor.

Wow, didn't expect this thread to get this many posts... lol.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll prolly just buy the cord, its only like $4 and I have a gift card to use at Amazon.

The next challenge will be figuring out what else I should get... maybe movies, something else computer related, I don't know!

Again, as always, thanks for the help!
