Re: Monitor display resolution question

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?

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.
