I recently bought a Dell Studio Hybrid for the sole purpose of using it as an HTPC. Since it had HDMI output I thought this would be an easy setup. It turns out I can not get it to work with my Panasonic 42" Plasma TV whereas it works fine with my 32" Vizio (bedroom TV).
I have been on the phone with Dell Support and they state that it must be an issue with the TV. I have an AppleTV connected to the same HDMI port using the same HDMI cable (not at the same time of course) and it works fine. Because of this I can not see how it can be a problem with the TV. What am I missing here?
The resolution I am testing with is 1024x768. Previously, a Dell technician came out to replace the motherboard and he stated that it could be because the Intel graphics adapter on the Studio Hybrid wasn't powerful enough to output to the larger TV. But 1024x768 should be the same output regardless of the TV size, shouldn't it?
The large TV is a Panasonic TH42-PX600U - http://www2.panasoni...H-42PX600U.T#ts
The small TV is a Vizio 32 VW32L 720p LCD HDTV - http://www.vizio.com...d=2720&pid=1506
Can anyone confirm if they have a Studio Hybrid outputting to a large (42"+) TV? I am not sure how to proceed from here so please let me know if you have any input.
