Re: Monitor display resolution question

said by printscreen:

Not even 16:10 can be found anymore.

Eh? 1920x1200 is 16:10 aspect ratio, and as I said above 1920x1200 monitors are making a comeback due to continual pressure/complaints from folks like us who really do prefer the real estate. So, 16:10 can most certainly be found easier than, say, 2-3 years ago (but still not as easy as 5-6 years ago). Maybe the distributor situation in Puerto Rico is different than here in the mainland US?

I presume the Dell U2412M is HDCP compliant? I ask because my present Dell 2405 FPW isn't.

Heck if I know. I avoid HDMI entirely because of HDCP.

My screen keeps giving me a message that it's not compatible, when displaying TV and I have to trick it by starting off in a small window and expanding it;) Ridiculous...

That sounds odd. What is the hardware configuration, TV signal source and software application being used?

I'd say there's a 99.999% chance it does. My 2007WFP supports it, as well as every DVI/HDMI monitor I've set up in the last few years.

The Dell 2405 FPW is not HDCP compliant. All of their newer 1080p and higher models support HDCP, everything since the 07 series I think.

During my first use of my new Auria EQ276W 2560x1440 IPS 27” monitor I ran Windows 7 Media Center as a test on a test system. I believe the error message you are receiving is the same one I received during the test run. Basically I don’t think Media Center likes resolutions greater then 1920x1080. Since that is a typical resolution for media or an upper limit that doesn’t seem that odd. Still, if Media Center could either do away with the error message or automatically adjust the resolution,…or something that would be an improvement.
