Resolution only 720 x 480

Hello,

I have the following things:

- WD TV Gen. 2
- A monitor: LG2452-TX
- Cable HDMI => DVI-D

If I set the resolution at the WDTV to "auto", the resolution "720 x 480 60 Hz" is used. I can try all manual resolution settings with my WDTV, my monitor shows always "720 x 480 60Hz".

But the native resolution of my monitor is 1920 x 1200.
My test-movie had a resolution of 1280 x 720.

I'm fearing that I've found the solution. My monitor is able to display the resolutions below.
Is is possible, that 720 x 480 x 60 is the only resolution, which is capable for monitor and WDTV?

Is there a chance for change this issue?

Or is it the same problem as here?



Best regards

akapuma

Have you tried contacting WD's Technical Support? I would consider giving them a call about this.

Re: Resolution only 720 x 480

I have the wdtv live version with the same problem.  The hdmi to dvi problem has never been resolved.  Resolution is output at lowest setting.  I've written numerous times to western digital but I'm only getting low level tech support. 

There is a deeper discussion at this forum regarding the problem.

This problem doesn't exist in the 1st gen wdtv, and is the only reason why i'm still holding to it.  I hope this will be fixed soon.

Same problem here on HDMI ---> DVI connection.  Only 480p no matter what resolution is selected in the menu.

I have not tried. This can lead to damage to the monitor.

I thought  this utility just report what kind of display you have, doesn't change how it behaves.
