    Hello All,

    I recently upgraded from a Radeon 8500 to a 9800 and although I am very happy with the card, the TV doesn't initiate unless you manually do it (I have a macro in place, but I have to wait for windows to boot, then login my password BLIND) :wow:

    I thought it was driver related, until I pluged my Radeon 8500 back in and the TV booted just fine right from the get go! With the same Catalyst driver!

    Anybody dealt with this before or know how I can fix this?

    PS: Ive asked this 3 times already (sorry) but, how can I over clock my 9800. whether it be a program or some thing more physical.

    Thanx alot

    :cheers:

    I run a dual display a lot with TV / screen, and if I boot with both devices running, then it'll automatically pick up the screen as the primary device. Just make sure that you've set the TV as the primary device, although if it's your only output device it should be.. Interesting...

    This is my "recreation" CPU, for gaming mainly (lot of emulators as well). Its just not the same playing "Legend of Zelda" or "Super Mario Bros." on a 17" monitor, you know what I mean?

    I haven't quite got $8,000 to invest in a HDTV right now, so I make due.
