PC into 42PHD8


Standard Member
Hello Folks,

Going to plug my PC into my new plasma for the first time tonight. I've got Powerstrip and wondered what settings people have had most success with?

I understand 1024*768 panel but non-square pixels, what would be best for 1:1 pixel mapping?

I'll try some HD stuff, again i'm a bit confused - Widescreen HD video, Non -square pixels, how do i get the best from this?

Many Thanks

Just use the Nokia test pattern...


Don't even worry about powerstrip at first, just set the output to 1024x768 at 50 and at 60hz and run the resolution pattern.

While it is running adjust the H and V size on the screen until you see the image snap in, it will be very, very obvious. You may have to adjust the clock phase too is you have noise in the image.
Now use the position to get it fitting the screen properly.

Job done! :)
