This is my first time delving into tft monitors and connections other than vga, but I am encountering problems when I try to play back DVDs.
Basically, games and downloaded content such as High definition videos from the microsoft play absolutely fantastically - no blurring or ghosting, and are all pixel perfect.
However, when I play a DVD, very dark and very light colours go all "patchy" and there is a significant amount of image ghosting and blurring, again most noticeably on really dark or really like scenes.
I am using windows XP X64 edition, and have a 19" GNR TS902W monitor (http://www.gnr.co.uk...?pct=lcd&&ss=19)
My previous monitor (Samsung syncmaster 753s. vga connection) played everything fine, with exactly the same setup.
There are only two things I can think of, which may or may not effect things.
1) This monitor has in-built drivers and colour profile. My NVidia control panel detects the monitor as a TS902w, but windows control panel only says "plug and play monitor".GNR will not provide me with any drivers or colour profiles, saying in an email "it is a software fault, not ours".
2)I am using the DVI connection on the monitor. My graphics card is an ASUS en7600s 512mb pci-e card (http://www.pixmania....-512-mb-pc.html) which also has the DVI connection on it. HOWEVER when I bought the monitor, I could only find a DVI-I cable, and the socket is designed for DVI-D dual link. Could this be the problem?
Also, as a note, I usually use the latest VLC player to play dvds. I have gone through the process of uninstalling all my video codecs and re-installing only the ones I really need. I still have the same problem when I try using Power DVD 7 and Windows Media play with and without the Nvidia purevideo add on.
My Pc specs are as follows:
AMD64 3700+ San Diego S939 2.2GHz
550gb samsung sata-ii hdd
2gb kingston ram
ASUS en7600s 512mb graphics card
19" GNR TS902W monitor
Creative Audigy 4 soundcard.
I hope this is enough information! (and that I dont have a dud monitor....)
