I have a Avermedia Liver Gamer HD C985 capture card with a Radeon HD 5850 and a 27.5" Hanns G HZ281 monitor.

With just the GFX card, my monitor is capable of 1920x1200 resolution but with the Live Gamer installed and plugged in and connected to GFX card/Monitor, I only can set my desktop and in-game resolutions to 1440x900.

Would any one know the cause for this and how I could get my resolution back up to at least 1920x1080?

Thanks for your input.

Easy, your monitor according to the specs is "1920 x 1200 pixels" not the 1920x1080 you think it is, it just runs at that resolution. (taken from here) http://www.pcworld.com/product/546524/hz281hpb-black-27...

Combine that with these key factor from the avermedia site.

" The Live Gamer HD does not work with 1920*1200 monitors." Taken from here, http://www.avermedia.com/product/ProductDetail.aspx?Id=...

Therfore, your capture card does not support your monitors resolution and drops down to the next lowest compatible available resolution. Record in that resolution or get a monitor or a capture card that supports your monitor.
