I've had a good search but can't seem to find the answer for this, but can the 26" Panny accept a PC input via HDMI and is it 1:1?

(Sorry if this has been asked before, but I can't find the answer)

Also like to know this, found some posts from certain people saying they'd managed it, but others stating the HDMI socket didnt work when using a PC! :confused:

It will work fine - my pc picked up the panny as a hd tv and allowed various settings - it did not allow 1:1 as my graphics card does not support 1366x768.

I could tweak it with powerstrip but i am just too damnlazy.

By the way - wait till you see dvdplayback from the pc on this screen.........

I've got it to work having pc linked to the tv but i cant get it setup right and im using a dvi-hdmi lead :thumbsdow
I have a Nvidia 6800 Gt card with a Dvi and the standard vga port ive linked the card via a cheap dvi-hdmi lead from ebay :rolleyes: to my Panasonic TX26LXD52 yet whatever resloution i choose the picture quality is never sharp and if watching videos you can see the blockness as if the resolution is low.
Im using powerstrip and it detects as 640x480 :confused: so i use the detect option in powerstrip that detects all the right settings and resolution that my tv actually is which ive saved as a driver then updating the windows driver for my tv yet still i never get a proper picture and powerstrip lists as 640x480 if move the cursor over the powerstrip icon :confused: :mad:

Just received a text message from my flat mate who says it's been delivered :) (Very impressed with www.digital.point.co.uk as I ordered yesterday afternoon)

I'll be using the same as you, dvi-hdmi but with an X850XT - hopefully will have more luck.

Will post back either this evening or tomorrow.

don't forget to enter the picture menu and set it to wxga - otherwise it will be very fuzzy

Hmmm still no luck i think i might try ordering a vga to hdmi lead see if that will work as im only using the tv as a monitor so i can use either the dvi or the vga port ...just atm i only have a dvi to hdmi lead :(
Also you cant select wxga can you :confused: i think you refering to the 500 model rather than 52 :rolleyes:

Whatever screen resolution i choose powerstrip always seems to list as 640x480 when i move the cursor over its icon so im gonna just try a vga to hdmi lead and hope that works :(

Maybe you could try one of the leads that they mention in the thread i posted a link for, DVI-D to HDMI, which might work as its only letting the digital signal through, compared to a normal DVI to HDMI lead which lets both the digital and analogue signal through, which apparently makes TV's and PC's uncompatible.

Cheers i never really took a great deal of notice of different variety of dvi leads i'll have to check its a dvi and not a dvi-d before i order and try that out :smashin:

Right...I've finally got home and hooked up the PC. I have set the res on the PC to 1280x720 - but it looks like it has overscanned? as the top and bottom of the picture is being cut-off.

If I set the res to 1368 but got a blank screen followed by a BSD from tehe ATI drivers.

Anyway, I'm gonna watch some nice HD stuff and will try again tomorrow.
