Samsung 2333HD LCD TV Part 4 FX5200

some photos i took while playing 1080p videos using my old desktop via vga d-sub cable. sorry i have no dvi or hdmi out.

2.66 GHz P4
ASUS P4PE socket 478, AGP @4x only
Palit GeForce FX5200 128MB AGP 8x 128bit

Star Trek trailer 1080p

notice the jagged lines? even after updating to the latest nvidia 175.19 driver for fx5200 still gave the same result. turns out that fx5200 doesn't support 1080p resolution videos although my winxp desktop looks good at 1920x1080 @60Hz. even my 720p avi videos has barely noticeable jagged lines.

after 2 days of tweaking and reinstalling drivers, codecs, players i finally gave up playing videos at 1080 and change resolution to 720.

Samsung 2333HD LCD TV Part 2 Hidden Menu

to get to your 2333HD Hidden Menu, make sure your monitor is turned off then using the remote controller key in Mute -> 1 -> 8 -> 2 -> Power.

this is shown at the main menu of my first 2333HD:

mvd_HD.bin: 0184
LIB_CC_J.LIB: 005062
LIB_Demux_ATSC_J.LIB: 0017
LIB_Demux_lsr_J.LIB: 0008
demux_atsc_bin: 0017

at the back panel of the monitor the manufacturing date is November 2008. i returned this unit because of a defective remote IR receiver.

if any of you guys can discern what the text means please leave a comment.
