Hi all

Im having problem with getting greenish picture every 10-20min while in 1920*1080 resolution. Doesnt matter if its gaming or movie. Have to switch off or revert in windows,and then turn back on,or just switch between hdmi 1 and hdmi 2 and back to 1 on tv...

Its even more frustrating that i got new combination in other room-and same darn thing happens...

Philips lcd 42" 100hz + win7(win xp) on ati hd5670 and dual core intel pc 500w psu...
Philips lcd 32" 100hz + win7 on ati hd5770 x3 athlon pc 650w psu

Both TVs and video cards are brand new. No response from philips or ati...Tried many versions of software and drivers.

Any ideas'?

Is there a reason for newer Hdmi cable? i got regular ones...Sure not 1.4

First, to clear away one element that can be confusing: DVI and HDMI are exactly the same as one another, image-quality-wise. The principal differences are that HDMI carries audio as well as video, and uses a different type of connector, but both use the same encoding scheme, and that's why a DVI source can be connected to an HDMI monitor, or vice versa, with a DVI/HDMI cable, with no intervening converter box.

same problem

Recently bought 32" PFL8404 and experience the same problem. Even worst when connect to my laptop via HDMI the native resolution of 1080p appear on the screen smaller/not to the actual screen borders. I have 2 cables and tried both but the same appears again. Then decided that the problem could be with laptop or video card and tried with desktop and DVI to VGA and the same green/pink picture appear again in 15 to 20 mins. the picture didn't cover all the screen despite all screen formats I changed. The TV is using latest firmware. Any help pleasee...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
