Right, i have a 434HDE plasma and a HCPC with a DVi output. i also bought a DVi--->HDMi cable the other day. The HCPC uses a Radeon 9200 btw.

How can i get the the DVi signal on to the plasma? i have tried using powerstrip to output the correct signal to the plasma but it does not work; the plasma does not detect a HDMi signal at all.

UPDATE:

i have managed to use powerstrip to set my resolution to what i think is a supported one by HDMi. When plug in the DVi to HDMi cable in to the PC and in to the plasma media box, the HDMi option on the plasma menu is still greyed out.

What does it actually mean the HDMi option is greyed out on the plasma menu?

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you want a straight DVI - DVI cable?

The Pioneer does not except DVI signals AFAIK. It only accepts HDMI ( or at least I cant seem to find a DVI connection on the media box)

Hey I had been having the same problems but a true genius, mherrin, worked out the solution. Basically you get Powerstrip, and follow his instructions. I found that 1216x686 was the best resoultion for the screen and man does it look far sharper than a VGA image.

I have Media Center 2005 running through it and its a delight to use. I considered using a bigger resolution, but seeing the fonts might become a problem. I wonder whether anyone has dabbled with a high resolution as yet?
