Looks like the best resolution I can run at is 1650x1050 on HDMI...
It's not too bad but it doesn't fill in the monitor. It there any kind of benefit over VGA/DVI/HDMI?
Maybe I'll give DVI a shot.
edit: yeah DVI runs 1920x1080. I guess that's the best I'll get. *shrug* happy to have display at least haha. If anyone else encounters this issue and knows a way to run HDMI at 1920x1080 I'd sure be all ears!
Thanks for the help!
I also recently bought an ATI 5850 card (Powercolor) and I get the same issue as you do. I connect with hdmi 1920x1080 @ 60 (also tried 59 and 50Hz) to my 47" LCD TV. When I set the resolution it works fine but after a random time it suddenly turns pink and distorted. The time can vary between 3 minutes and 30 minutes but I have only been at this for a day. If I change the resolution (or any setting in Catalyst or driver properties) it turns back to normal...for a time until it turns pink again.
Running lowet than 1920x1080 is absolutely no option for me. So, if anyone has any other idea please help so I wont have to go back to the store and swap to a NVIDIA.
