Acer X243w monitor as a TV Pic great but "not supported" box

\015 So my TV broke and I though till I got another, I'd use the monitor as a TV. Trial and error got me to:HDMI out of cable box to DVI-D in on monitormonitor set to 1920X1080Monitor is DDC/CISO the pic looks awesome, flawless, EXCEPT.. a gray box moving around saying "input not supported". So why does it look so good if not supported? Just to annoy me? Is there some way to get rid of the box? The pic is excellent.\015

Answers :

My assumtion is that the monitor is not displaying in 1920x1080 but has defaulted to a resolution that it can handle so as to display something. Step down the resolutions on the monitor until the gray box disappears. If you're satisfied with the picture your watching then hopefully you will be happy when you find the resolution the monitor is actually displaying.
\015\012Good luck!
