So I got a monitor to use as an external for my MacBook Pro. It is an LG e2340 and I am connecting via HDMI by the way. Anyways, there are some issues I have found and I am wondering if there are any ways to remedy them.
- In the mid-resolution range (1000horizontal-1600h) green lines appear in the dark areas of the external screen
- In the high-resolution range(1600h-1900h) it seems like the monitor can't handle it because it is all black and the menu buttons don't work.
I tried to see how it fared in OSX and most of the same things were happening. I tried the 1080p option and it did the blank screen thing. Then I tried 1080i and what do you know it worked. I looked up what the i meant and found that it was interlaced so I went back to windows and looked through the advanced resolution options and found options for 1920x1080 (Interlaced) and it worked.
Things I have noticed though are that the refresh rate is only 30Hz so I can sometimes notice flickering, especially with Windows Glass.
So, after all of that, what do you think is wrong? Is there a way to increase refresh rate with interlaced? Or even better, how can I get 1080p to work?
Thanks a bunch
EDIT: It works with 720p so its not that its not capable of progressive. On the web page here it says Full HD 1080p = YES
