Having problems with your Acer AL2017 20" LCD Monitor ?

Connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor

\015 Connected a dvi cable from the back of my cable box to monitor's dvi input and it say's on screen input not supported. What does this mean.\015

Answers :

The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.

For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.

The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).

If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.
