    Intel hd4600 - z87-ds3h - HDMI and Resolution issues. 14/4/14 sound fixed.

    Oh_dear

      SoundHi

       

      Hoping some Intel 'experts' will be reading this post.

       

      MB - z87-ds3h.

      Monitor S24c450 - DVI-D connection

      LG LH4000 - HMDI connection.

       

      A new computer, custom built of course, with I3 Haswell 4430.

       

      The Intel GPU panel is at best amateurish and rubbish. Has anyone from Intel ever looked at their competitors, like ATI, and see how brilliant their software is for dealing with GPU.

       

      Problems i have is similar to what ATI had 5 years ago and they did sort out the drivers issues. Now i am seeing the whole thing again plus more problems then i had 5 years ago. It does begs the question that if ATI dealt with HDMI issues long ago, why is Intel so far behind. It's beggars belief that i'd built a new computers and only to find Intel GPU has somewhat transported myself back 5 years, via TARDIS maybe.

       

      Problems.

      1. No HDMI sound. Plainly ridiculous. Found that i need to update my bios so i did it and the sound worked. I can see that Windows 7 64 can recognise my LG TV. Yippee..........until........something goes wrong, as outlines in the problems below. The audio no longer function with code 10 error in the Device manager - system devices - HDAC. If i start my computer then there is no sound. Ping Ping, 5 years old memories comes flooding back. Re-started my computer with TV on, connected to HDMI to PC, and the sound worked. ATI sorted that out 5 years ago by the way.

       

      2. My monitor is 1920*1200 and clearly stated in the display panel and Intel GPU panel as main monitor extended with LG TV.(1920*1080 of course).

      When i switched my TV to connect with PC, from normal TV channels, my monitor goes off and comes back on again 2-4 seconds later. The fonts have changed into some weird crappy font. Checked my panels and found that the resolution had changed itself from 1920*1200 to 1920*1080. Had to change it back to 1920*1200 myself to restore my monitor to it's original setting. For crying out loud, this is plainly ridiculous.

       

      3. When all looked ok, i started to watch a program and KMPlayer comes on the LG TV........not before......repeat.....my monitor and TV goes off and comes back on again 2-4 seconds later. The fonts have changed into some weird crappy font. Checked my panels and found that the resolution had changed itself from 1920*1200 to 1920*1080. Had to change it back to 1920*1200 myself to restore my monitor to it's original setting. Oh lordy lord....ATI sorted that out 5 years ago.

       

      4. Now after so much hassle i watched my program, with sound, but when i wanted to access my stop/play/rewind/etc functions, i can not access it. Turned out that i had to rescale my TV using GPU panel from 100 to 74. I do wonder why i need to do that when the output resolution matched my TV resolution. Although it is now solved, it should not have happened in the first place. Now i can relax in my reclining sofa and watch TV without any problems despite the fact that i have to go through so much hassle to get to my state of relaxation. When i finished watching a program.....oh dear...

       

      5. Closing my KMplayer, my monitor and TV goes off and comes back on again 2-4 seconds later. The fonts have changed into some weird crappy font. Checked my panels and found that the resolution had changed itself from 1920*1200 to 1920*1080. Had to change it back to 1920*1200 myself to restore my monitor to it's original setting.....for the 3rd time......lordy lord.....my relaxation was very short-lived.

       

      6. Turned off my TV, my monitor goes off and comes back on again 2-4 seconds later. The fonts have changed into some weird crappy font. Checked my panels and found that the resolution had changed itself from 1920*1200 to 1920*1080. Had to change it back to 1920*1200 myself to restore my monitor to it's original setting........aaarrrggghhhhhh.

       

      ATI solved all the above problems that i experienced 5 years ago. Why has Intel not bothered. Now someone please give the CEO a kick up the backside and tell him to start earning his pay.

       

      One more thing. I look at the device properties, can't remember which, and it said connection type for TV is HDMI, Jolly good, Looked at the monitor and it said connection type HDMI, not so jolly when it suppose to be DVI-D.

       

      Yours most frustratedly,

       

      Oh dear.
