I think the biggest factor in this is not the high fidelity output, but the possibility to more accurately match a given target color. Especially when working in print, you want to take care that what you're seeing on screen matches the printed result to a tee. That is much harder if you only have a small amount of colors to chose from. If you have a ...

I know you have answered your own question. But in case others don't have the same setting on their TV, but are still getting the image cropped all round, I'll leave this answer. My TV, an 8 year old Panasonic, has what it calls "Picture Overscan" where a small number of pixels, maybe 20 or so, are cropped off all round. Irritatingly enough, this is ...

VGA is analog. HDMI is digital. Meaning: the digital output of your computer is converted to the analog VGA signal. The analog VGA signal is converted back to a digital signal by your monitor. These conversions depend on the quality of the involved cable, connectors and especially the analog/digital converter components within your graphics card and the ...

I am not sure there is a limit in the standard. However: Your graphical card needs to be able to provide the image. 400MHz DACs are common, which would commonly limit it to any configuration using a lower than 400MHz bandwidth. E.g. 2048x1536@85 Hz (388 MHz). If your DAC is more capable then you can go higher, e.g. to 7680x4800. You monitor needs to be ...

No, HDMI cables don't support this functionality. HDMI does have a backchannel (CEC) which in principle could be used to carry mouse and keyboard signals, but I don't know of any hardware which actually uses it for that. You may be able to use it that way in hardware you built yourself, but it's extremely unlikely your monitor supports it. Monitors ...

Each and every VGA flat-panel display has an "Auto" button. It automatically adjusts the interpretation of the analog signal to achieve a (more or less) pixel-perfect mapping. Activate this function when the outer edges of the image displayed are clearly defined (nothing black) and you have text visible. Still, 1080p is in the upper regions of what's ...

author of f.lux here. DisplayLink does pass through DDC/CI commands to displays. We've had an implementation to do this for a few years, but we've been cautious to support this for a few reasons: Most displays store color settings using an EEPROM, and these typically have a finite number of write cycles. We could get away with changing things a couple ...

VGA is an analog signaling method, and as such is greatly affected by: Cable quality, which includes the gauge (thickness of the wire), shielding, and EM/RF filtering such as ferrite cores Output signal from the video card Signal processing on the display External interference - proximity to power lines, microwaves, blenders, etc. Most laptops are not well-...

Basically, HDMI is digital and VGA is analogue. There are a few solutions: 1) Buy a docking station which provides access to 2x HDMI or 1x HDMI + 1x DVI. 2) Use an on-board DVI instead of the VGA. 3) Buy a HDMI -> VGA converter. The 1st VGA will no longer seem blurry in comparison with the HDMI.

It turned out, there is a setting I have never needed in this TV: Changhong Chiq UHD43E6000ISN It was the Aspect Ratio = PTP (Pixel-To-Pixel? Feel free to comment, if you found a link to wiki or something, I did not). Selecting this option instead of 16:9 or Auto, fixed the problem. Original picture, Aspect Ratio 16:9, cropped After-Fix picture, Aspect ...

It is possible, but involves lots of work and is kind of useless. You wouldn't call the end result a monitor, as such -- the Paperwhite logs into an SSH session, so it pretty much only works for terminals, as the lag between wireless keyboard and the e-ink screen is around 200ms. An article about this exploit is published by Max Ogden : Kindleberry ...

Both the Intel and Nvidia GPU seem to have a max resolution that is dependent on the connection type. From Intel Graphics Reference and nVidia the max resolution: Display Port: 2560x1600 HDMI/DVI: 1920x1080 Analog VGA: 2048x1536 The Intel link is less clear that HDMI and DVI are less than the DisplayPort but there are a number of other sources that claim ...

The pixel clock adjusts how wide the input pixels are. VGA is an analog input, there are no clear-cut boundaries between pixels and the monitor must guess. If the clock setting gets misadjusted, your display gets blurry and that’s probably why it no longer causes interference. To adjust the clock and phase settings properly, view a pixel checkerboard on ...

As others have said, VGA is an analog signal but the pixels in a flat panel display are digital. The monitor has to know where in the VGA analog waveform to sample the signal to convert it to digital. The auto adjust feature on flat panel displays attempts to guess the best timing for that sampling. But if the timing isn't perfect, you will get a blurry ...

As @Wyzard says, computers talk to monitors via DDC and this uses 4 pins on the vga. See the pinout on wikipedia. A working vga cable needs all the pins wired independently from each, and also from the cable shielding to the chassis, i.e the metal cover of the plugs and sockets. Only pins 4 and 11 can be missing or not cabled. Inside a monitor there is a ...

Immediately I thought to recommend enabling HiDPI mode, which basically allows you to change the display to use half of the real pixel density without changing the resolution: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true but then I did the math and realized that you want 2/3 of your full ...

OK I feel stupid: the answer is to open the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel (right click the desktop and choose Intel Graphics Settings, then go to the Wireless Display section and increase the Picture Size to 100%. See screenshot below. You would think this would DEFAULT TO 100% (hello Intel???) but it was defaulted to 75%.

I am successfully using a Korean 27" IPS display (Crossover 27Q) at 2560x1440@60Hz in Linux over a VGA cable, with an old (GM45) Intel chipset. To my surprise, the hardware can drive the image just fine at that resolution over VGA. The image is relatively sharp, but there are some "ringing" artifacts to the right of hard intensity transitions. The most ...

Multi-monitor management software is very helpful for situations it sound like you are in, however to accomplish the specific goal of accessing windows on other desktops you mention it is easily done with hotkeys in Windows. Use Alt-Tab until the window you'd like to move is selected, then press Windows-Left_arrow or Windows-Right_arrow to move the window ...

Dell now offers (at least) two monitors with DisplayPort 1.2 ports for daisy-chaining: Dell U2713H 27" Monitor Dell UltraSharp u2913WM 29" Ultra-wide monitor I cannot, however, confirm that they work with the MacBook Pros. If/when these ports start showing up on their lower-end monitors I might take the plunge.

BenQ make a lot of them. When a new model is made - at least in the USA, a "FCC Declaration of Conformity" must be issued - stating that the screen complies with all required legislation and regulation. For the 24056FPW monitor - the declaration (link here) says it was made by BenQ A little bit of googling has sent me to other pages which also list BenQ ...

This is an old question, but I just found an answer to it. There is an MSDN tool called devcon that can be used to restart devices without reboot: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff544807(v=vs.85).aspx You need to run the command prompt with admin rights. After that, for example on my laptop this is how I restart my display driver ...

Your display is set to Extend, which means you have two desktops now: the internal display and the TV. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. You can drag windows from your internal display to the TV (and back). Just use your mouse as if it was one big display. The extended desktop is to the right of the regular one: If you want to disable this feature: In ...

I believe it's most likely a bug in the generic Windows display driver. It's possible you can solve this with a driver from Dell for your display. I've struggled with exactly that same behavior in one of my monitors, where it randomly goes dark for a couple seconds, then comes back on. The interval between could hours or it could seconds (almost constant ...

I know there's no standards on VGA connectors/port for max resolution. You should check your laptop's specs to see what the max it will output as a starter. Wikipedia says with sufficient quality cable, up to 2048x1536@85 Hz is possible. A laptop with just a VGA card, most likely the max resolution it will support externally will work fine.
