View Full Version : 56" TV + GTR2= No work?
20 July 08, 20:38
I cannot get GTR2 to work on my television. I have a 56" Samsung LED DLP tv and can play Richard Burns Rally just fine. Whenever I try to open GTR2 I get an error message. What am I missing?

what does the error message say?

I get the error message of the sort that there is a problem and wait for Windows to find it.
I tried with a 19 inch Sylvania.

I had a similar problem hooking up to my 47'' LCD. All fixed now.
Make sure the tv supports the resolution you are running GTR2 at.
What is your Tv's resolution?
I get error too, if i try to use wrong resolution in my 32" LCD, which i use when i play race sims('cause i have Playseat Evolution). It's my secondary display, primary is 22" Samsung 226BW, resolution are 1680x1050 and 1360x768 for the tv. I have dualview selected from Forceware's options.
And i have both displays connected with DVI-cable.

The tv is 1920x1080. It's a 1080p TV. I am not sure what the error message is. I get a window that says GTR2 has encountered a problem and needs to close. GTL works just fine, too. It only seems to be GTR2 that doesn't work.
try the config utility and set the resolution to something you know works

I am not that smart. All I know is GTL and RBR work. I could not find a resolution to match the 1920x1080 in the PC display set up menu. Are you suggesting that I try to adjust the TV?

If resolution is correct, than maybe refresh rate is causing problems?

A lot of tv manufacturers don't officially support hooking up your PC to HDMI - apparently they are not interested in the 50 zillion support calls they would get.
My tv is 1080i but the native LCD VGA input res is 1280x1024 @ 60 htz. It will display 800x600 and 1024x768 also - not pretty. (I'm using DVI to VGA adapter).
LCDs run 60 hertz refresh rates so try that.

in gtr2 go into your "config exe" file...in that you set the resolution to your Sammy's native resolution that you stated above and its refresh rate ..which should be 60hz...although the Samsung manual says you cant run a pc through the hdmi...dvi to hdmi on tv ...you can and it will work. I do it..
I think somewhere along the line here you have resolution set incorrectly...assuming you've got a good installation of GTR2 to begin with...

Thanks. I will check that out. I have been playing this installation of GTR2 since it came out. Just trying the TV out.

I have a 42" HDMI Plasma screen and I found that it wouldn't work as well. I found I had to change the display resolution in the control panel to match that of the TV, not in the GTR2 config and that got it going, good luck:-)
you should be able to dual monitor . set your GTR2 config, pc monitor res to the same as the tv res. . video and winamp should be fine but GTR2 won't look as good but it is passable.
