    Hello,

    I'm having trouble despite reading this thread. http://www.avforums.com/forums/grap...ms/666277-intel-gm965-custom-resolutions.html
    and the Intel software network article about DTD calculator.

    I'm connecting my laptop with Mobile Intel (R) series 4 graphics via a VGA to component video cable to my Samsumg TX-R3080WH TV. (480p/720p/1080i)

    I've tried adding custom resolutions with the DTD calculator, but haven't had any success. With the input selected the television displays "mode not supported" for the 720p, 1080i and other PC screen resolutions. The only resolutions that the TV seems to accept are 640x480 and 720x480, but the image looks polarized, flickers and is warped.

    I know little about AV and PCs so I would appreciate some help.

    Thanks

    In 99.99% of setup's VGA to component video cables do not work with current graphics cards/laptops.
    You either need VGA to VGA or DVI to HDMI or HDMi to HDMI.

    Component out only works if the graphics card specfically states it can do so.

    Well I guess I wasted a few dollars on the cable.

    My laptop only has VGA out. My TV has HDMI, composite and component inputs. Is there an inexpensive way to connect the two.

    Thanks,
