T260HD Xbox 360 and PS3 issues

by judolf / December 30, 2009 1:33 PM PST

I've tried connecting both via component and hdmi to my new samsung t260hd monitor, and while hdmi looks slightly better than component, the picture is still blurry and washed out. I set it to "just scan" so it doesn't stretch the image, but I'm not sure if this is an issue with the settings or if the monitor is defective.

judolf,

Have you tried adjusting the output resolution settings in the game console?

Yes I've tried every possible configuration in both consoles. The weird thing is the menus look sharp its just when you play games the picture is blurry.

T260HD to PS3 via HDMI = Terrible Quality

T260HD hooked up to my PS3 via HDMI... the pic quality is borderline terrible. Same deal as above, the menus look great, crisp and sharp. Once a game loads, it looks blurry and bleeding. I have tried everything and I'm at my wits end. It is some sort of game-play issue between the PS3 and t260HD. I'm starting to regret buying this monitor as i have never had any issues with my ps3 connected to any of my other HDTV's (Sony and Sharp)

Mine looks good
by adam2121 / March 4, 2010 1:33 PM PST

Not a solution, just a comparison. I just got my T260HD from Buy.com and hooked it up to the 250G PS3 slim I got from SonyStyle the other day. Looked good to me almost straight out of the box. This was the first time I'd used the HDMI on the PS3 so it (the PS3) asked if I wanted to automatically optimize settings (or something like that), I said yes, adjusted a couple things in the monitor's settings to make it a bit better to the naked eye (as opposed to a calibration DVD which I don't have with me in the hotel) and MLB10 and Bioshock 2 look fine.

Once again sorry that's not a solution but maybe your's is faulty, there's settings you're missing, or I'm just not a videophile Happy

I found the best thing to do, is set AV mode to off then set image size to wide.

i have a samsung t260 monitor and to make the picture sharper, this is with xbox 360 through hdmi is to set it to:

Xbox 360 settings
Resolution: 720p
Reference level: Intermediate

Monitor settings
MagicBright: custom
Brightness: 100
Contrast: 75
MagicColor: off
Color tone: Normal
Gamma mode: 3
Image size: Just Scan
AV mode: On
Hdmi black level: Normal

some games look better than other, it depends on the games native resolution, Forza 3 looks really nice for me now.
