I tried this last night using an HDMI -> DVI cable. No joy, same screen.
I tried all the different inputs on the Panasonic TV, and even tried using strait HDMI and HDMI->DVI together.
This may turn out to be an incompatibility with the Panasonic TV, but seeing as other HDMI sources work well with it, it seems it also has something to do with the Intel MOBO drivers/BIOS.
Any help is appreciated.
I tried using an HD Fury with this last noght (HDMI-Component) and no joy. Nothing at all.
So it turns out all this is just a crappy HDMI chip on the Panasonic TV, I got the tv to display win7 but only if I connect a monitor to the DVI port while booting, then at some point the plasma kicks in and takes over, but it handels the overscan very poorly, and has other issues.
I will probably replace this TV.
Final analasys shows that the RAID Bios on these boards makes it hard for a lot of TV's to get past that screen.
I disabled Raid, and this problem went away.
A better screen sizing tool from intel would be nice though as the overscan is bad, and fixed pixel TV's do not have sizing tools.
