Finally got my new PC today and I have my LG W2361V hooked up via HDMI now. I've compared HDMI to DVI and DVI seems to look better. First off, in HDMI, I my screen shrinks into a wide screen letter box and I can't seem to change this in any of the OSD settings. Perhaps it's because of this, that the text also just doesn't look as crisp/clear. The menu shows I'm in 1080p 60hz and the highest resolution it supports is 1920x1080.
Just checked my device manager, and the monitor is installed as a "Generic PnP" or something. I got the latest drivers from LG and applied. It now shows LG W2361 (HDMI), and no difference made. I am connected to a Radeon 5800 using the latest and greatest drivers from ATI.
If you have another HDMI cable laying around, give that a try. It could be that the current cable you are using is sub par. However, if it is a newer cable, it could be an issue with the monitor. Have you checked any reviews of the monitor to see if this is a common issue?
I have exactly the same problem with the same monitor. using a HDMI i have from my ati 6950... i havent try it yet with normal cable or with diferent hdmi... on some spots of the screen (maybe some lines) i see (specialy small text) very fuzzy/blurish... i have tried everything but nothing worked...
What is the native resolution of the monitor? If it is anything other than 1080 vertical, then you may be seeing an issue (not a problem) associated with scaling to resolutions other than the native resolution.
Ok i figured it out. its all about catalyst settings.
at my Digital flat panel settings there is an option > Pixel Format > by default it is set to ycbcr 4:4:4:4 i changed it to the bottom setting RGB 4:4:4:4 Pc standard full RGB and Fixed all my problems with this monitor amd HDMI. Now everything is crystal clear. i dont see borders anymore its completely accurately full screen and texts show clear and perfect.
