Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

When I connect my computer to my TV via HDMI, the screen is too zoomed in and the colors look horrible (blurry, wrong hues, etc), but it works perfectly with a VGA connection on 1920x1080 mode.

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

SOURCE: Insignia 22'' LED HDTV screen resolution problem with VGA

I think this stems from the fact there is no VGA mode designation (not plug and play) however there are VGA H&V settings that may be overidden from autodect mode under ADVANCED in teh menu. What sux is that it isnt stored and must e reset when input changes. FIRMWARE UPDATE PLEASE INSIGNIA!

Have lg 55ls5700 tv trying to connect samsung hw-f450


I suspect that the TV you have does not support the ARC function that the sound bar has. What you may have to do is use the Optical In from the sound bar to the TV and you should be good to go. You may have to change the TV's settings to use the Optical In though. So you should end up with the BluRay Player connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the sound bar connected to the TV via the Optical In using a fiber optic cable. Hope this helps.

Pc reads tv through hdmi but tv says no signal still what do i need to do?


The TV reads the PC via the HDMI out from the computer. You must make a direct connection from the PC to the HDMI input on the TV with a proper HDMI cable. Once that is established, you need to be certain what HDMI Channel is represented on the TV, HDMI #1, 2 or 3? Etc. Best you turn on the PC AFTER all connections are made and the TV is in full operation and the channel HDMI 1,2,or 3 etc. are on. Now turn on the PC and see if you get a connection. You may have a picture if you are streaming a video, and NO sound. If so, reset the Audio by clicking on the speaker icon at the lower right of your computer screen, and in the Volume Control Options select the output you wish to use.

XBOX Live plays back with pink hue


*YOU DO NOT NEED TO SWITCH TO STANDARD DEFINITION*

To view the videos via HDMI, you need to switch the HDMI Color Space setting to "RGB". To do this go through:

My Xbox > System Settings > Console Settings > Display > HDMI Color Space > and from there select RGB

I had this same issue when watching movies from a USB flash drive and this worked perfect, so I hope this helps those of you who love your HDMI as much as I do.
