    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Really? It seems like I've seen a number of people in different forums that have it. I assumed it was something to do with a combination of the firmware and 120hz settings, but mine appear to be what everyone else is using. I'm going to try the modded firmware out to see if that helps. I...

    Has anyone solved the issue where on the 39" at 1080p 120hz, the screen will black out every hour to hour and a half? And I'd be in for a DIY kit for the 39 inch.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    The patch doesn't work on 10.9 because it isn't needed. The pixel clock limitation that the patch fixes doesn't exist in 10.9. Also, if you are using Chrome when you see the slow tabs, it has an issue with it right now that we are trying to get the Chromium devs to fix. It seems to be the...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    When you go to the software version in the hidden menu does it say Baseline: 522712. Just want to make sure I have the latest one, since this shows May 21 2013 compared to August for the 39". I notice the same significant mouse lag decrease over the 39" firmware. Now it feel almost normal...

    Anyone running a hackintosh setup....Do you have issues with lag when using mission control? It seems to do ok with a very minimum number of windows, but with a fair number (which is the point of this monitor) my 6850 seems to choke. Maybe getting 5-10 frames in for the entire animation. It...

    If anyone is interested in turning off vsync in OSX, I found this did the job: http://www.tonymacx86.com/customization/92201-beamsyncdropper-tool-disable-beamsync-permanently.html You definitely start seeing tearing in the windows and if you move them fast they almost look wobbly like with...

    Thanks. Yeah I went ahead and ordered one yesterday and got it today. Plugged it into my 6850 in Windows and it was recognized very quickly. Rebooted into OSX and again it was instantly recognized at 4k with the 30hz refresh rate. I spent hours playing with settings in OSX with the hd4600, so I...

    You have your iMac outputing to the Seiki? If so, using the DP to HDMI adapter?

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    This is a hackintosh. I have 2xhd6850 cards but they don't support the 4k resolution via HDMI, so I was using the 4770k hd4600 onboard graphics via an HDMI port built into the Asus Z87 Pro motherboard. It works fine in windows with the hd4600 graphics, although I think it might be a bit more...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    I just got the 39" model and had no issues getting it working at full resolution in Windows 8 at 30hz using the on board hd4600 for my 4770k. However, I am having issues getting it working in the same capacity under osx 10.9. I can get it at full resolution but it always is 24hz or so and when...

    Glossy Screens on MVA/PVA/Etc - They Exist?

    I've got the soyo 24" and it has a glossy screen. It's not so pronounced as some laptops I have seen, but it definitely is more glossy than my Dell 2005fpw. I think it's a good compromise.

    zmjone2992 It's When Incubus Attacks Vol. 2. I think I've seen most of them out there, and by far I'd recommend this one the most if you are into their more psychedelic ways.

    SOYO 24" DYLM24D6 Official Thread

    I'd try taking the Soyo back and hope to get the September model. It seems like most of the issues have been ironed out in these. I've been using my for 2 days without the lines and it seems like most people with this problem have had them show up rather early. I havn't bought the protection...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    15" Macbook Pro, 24" Soyo, Dell 2005fpw The Soyo and Dell are both hooked to my Desktop which is core2duo at 3.4ghz and a 8800gts with 2gb of ram. Not too bad for a college student :) Older picture of the desktop in a different apartment, but it's all still the same.

    SOYO 24" DYLM24D6 Official Thread

    If you have buzzing and poor image quality, I'd definitely take it back....after all you do deserve to get what you payed for. When was yours manufactured? Mine says 09/2007, and it seems like people have been having more luck over with the september ones over august.
