I bought the purple ati component tv adapter a long time ago, never got around to hooking it all up until now. I ran into a few problems beforehand.. My 9800 pro is connected via dvi to my lcd monitor, so i had to buy a vga-to-dvi adapter get it all hooked up. So its setup like this, bear with me. DVI port on vid card is connected to lcd monitor. VGA port on vid card is connected to the vga-dvi adapter, then from that to the ati dvi-component adapter, then from that component to my tv. Now, ive been fiddling with this fuckin catalyst crapware for the past few hours and im pissed! The only time i can get any visible image is 800x600 60hz, even then the picture on the tv is a dark purple and it just fucked. Ive got the dip switches set to 720p and 1080i because my tv DOES support those. Any idea as to what im missing or is this vga-dvi adapter the culprit, somehow changing signal information before getting passed to the actual dvi-component adapter?? EDIT: so now i have my lcd connected via vga and the tv connected to the dvi port minus the vga-dvi adapter.. Everythings working fine. One nitpick you guys might be able to figure out.. Catalyst wont allow separate resolutions in "Clone main with HDTV", it'll only allow different res'es if i have the mode set to extend main to hdtv. Is there a way i can clone my desktop of my lcd which is 1680x1050 to my tv but my tv display be 1280x720???
