Playback problems with Blu-ray and DVD via HDMI on Acer Aspire 3200
Recently got a new PC , acer 3200 ( Big Mistake ), I got it because of its Blu-ray Player and as i thought a good spec.
The purpose of said maichine was to copy using clone dvd and any dvd ,all my dvd's appox 450 to Hard Drives, to which at the momment i have one external 1tb. The pc is classed as having the Geforce 8200,motherboard. It's Not Nvidia,but a unbranded board which acer uses.
I have this connected to a samsung plasma 42 " , WITH A 720 resolution.
connection is by HDMI.
The set up on picture is 1280 x 720 @ 50 hz.
Now here's my problem , the dvd's which i have are region 1 & 2, so are at 50 and 60 hz. The 50 hz play perfectly.the 60 hz shudder.
The other problem is the blu-ray side of things, with nearly 100 films, only the odd few play ok, the rest again shudder. these are all uk bought discs but looking at info ( when played on my projector) it states they are running at 60hz.
If i set the pc to 60 hz, the standard image of the pc is blurry and picture playback then swaps round so i then have loads of dvd'd which i cant watch.
I've tried the set up using the VGA cable, but this will only give a 4.3 ratio on screen, which my plasma is then stretching. This ofcorse is now running at 60 hz .Opening of the films then mean that i have to enlarge the images ( which i'm unsure or not, if im actually getting a 720 resolution from the blu-ray discs ) they seem like they play ( maybe slight judder from region 2 dvd's) and although i'm greatful that they seem like they now play , it does not help as i need to output on HDMI as the main reason for the pc is to run picture into a 7.1 Amp ( which i dont have yet, which will connect to a full hd proector and my plasma )
I dont understand how the picture from HDMI to VGA can be so different,when its comming from the same graphics card, and why is the picture at 60 hz on HDMI so different to that of 60 hz on VGA.
please can someone help as my wife is literally close to killing me...not joking either.
ps. Would it be possible to use an ntsc to pal converter,with HDMI connections?
