I recently started building an Intel H55 based HTPC but I'm facing one really nagging issue with 1080P output.
The following is my HTPC configuration.
Processor: Intel i3 530
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H
RAM: Transcend 4GB (2GB DDR3 x2)
OS HDD: Kingston 128GB SSD
Media HDD: Seagate ES 1TB x 2
OS: Windows 7 64 Bit
The HDMI O/P is connected to my Philips 42PFL7409/98 100Hz LCD TV which is 24P capable @ 1080P unscaled.
Everything works fine till 1280 x 1024 resolution but when the HTPC is set to 1920 x 1080 for Full HD playback, the windows desktop icons gets jagged edges and the font edges are not smooth. Not to mention that the same image distortion is seen in video playback as well as the menu of XBMC, MC7...
I've tried the following...
# Updated Intel Video drivers to latest ones - Problem remains
# Turned OFF all image processing features on my TV (HD Pixel Perfect) - Problem remains
# Changed HDMI cable (but same brand) - Problem remains
# Tried different refresh rates - Problem remains
Any help in isolating the issue would be much appreciated.
