View Full Version : 1366x768 resolution with 6600

I am having troubles setting the resolution with our home media PC. The PC is in the study with a Panasonic LCD monitor (1280x1024 SXGA).

In the living room we have a Sony KLVV40A10 (1366x768 1080i) in the livingroom which is the main viewing screen.

We are currently cloning the two displays.

I can't set the resolution to 1366x768. Everytime I do I get an error message saying that the resolution is not valid.

Really irritating!

It's because 1366 is not a multiple of 8. Set the resolution to 1360x768 or 1368x768 (using a custom resolution if you have to), and you should be fine. You might also want to try 1360x765, as what looks best is different between TVs.

I had to, for example, set up a custom resolution for 1360x768, as my card only allowed me to set 1360x765, whereas the former resolution looks much better on my TV (which has the same resolution as yours).

Your users manual should have the "PC Input reference chart" somewhere (it's on page 32 according to this PDF (http://www.css.ap.sony.com/consumer/template/IMDetails.aspx?Id=17397&category=TV&model=KLV-V40A10)), showing you what modes you can use. Just set the computer to 1360x768 and it will work fine, leaving 3 blank pixels on either side in order to keep the native resolution.

(1366x768 1080i) <-- ??
Naw, that's 720p. I can't even guess how a fixed pixel display would be interlaced natively.
