Hello,

I have recently bought this:

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/lg-47lm760t-full-hd-47-led...

As you can see it is a 42 LG TV and the frequency is 200hz. When I use my HDMI cable from my computer (GTX 570 GPU) It says 60hz. When I click on Nvidia Control Panel and try to change the Hz to 120 or 200 (or anything above 60) nothing is showing up (I mean 60hz is the highest I can choose)

Really not sure what to do!

Thanks.

Yep, still not there. I even unchecked the 'Hide Refresh Rate Etc Etc' and highest is still 60hz! :( , It says Generic PnP monitor though, but whilest in the 'Right Click, Screen Resolution' it says LG Monitor

Sorry didnt read your post fully, the HDMI cable is your problem, not enough bandwidth for 120hz.

Does your tv have inputs for display port or dual link dvi?

I don't think so, it will probably work if you drop your resolution to 720p

Yea they can be, but I would even blame the computer. The media industry is so disorganized...

HDMI is pretty much a fail, it has so many issues and its only going to get worse, LG have plans to release the first 4k tv at consumer level soon enough... so I would expect HDMI to be getting phased out over the next couple of years.

Computer component manufacturers actually have it sussed they have had display port etc for a while now, its still a pretty rare sight on tvs

Sorry, to a bit harsh, but it's a misinterpretation on your side! 200Hz means that the TV uses a higher frequency internally and even that is more like a marketing trick then a technical advance. There is no TV that can take 200Hz from any port.

Don't really know that much about TV's, yea its not rare its non existent. Had to look it up :lol: 

It's still useful though, not sure on the exact science behind it, but I do alot of video work and shoot footage on Sony EX3 and Canon 5D2 and sometimes while your panning across areas with lots of detail it can look a bit "jittery" on a 60hz tv whereas the 120hz+ tvs with frame interpolation or whatever look perfectly smooth. Why is that? always wanted to know......

That's because there ARE 120HZ LCD TVs. just like monitors. Depends on them frame rate you shoot if it looks better. Or TV settings

The footage is either 25 or 50 fps or occasionally 24fps. I don't understand your response? How is it because there ARE 120hz tvs?
