Setting up 50Hz on Plasma...


Active Member
Hi all, could someone please help me to set my Panasonic PHD8 to accept 50hz via vga? I read on the specs that 24hz should also be possible.

I've played around with powerstrip a bit but i don't think it was doing anything - ie 24hz/50hz material was still a bit juddery?

50Hz over VGA is pretty non-standard - and may not be supported by standard drivers.

IF your plasma supports 50Hz and 24Hz (or better 23.976Hz) via VGA then you may need to use something like Powerstrip, or the advanced or custom modes in your drivers.

Some displays only support 1920x1080 and 1280x720 at 50Hz and 23.976/24Hz via HDMI and Component and have different supported formats via VGA.
