postheadericon Fix for Apple TV screen flickering issue said to be on the way

One thing leads to another. First we get a slew of reports of screen flickering from folks using an HDMI to DVI adapter with their Apple TV, and now an Apple rep has confirmed on Apple’s support forms that the company is indeed “aware of this issue and working on a fix.” No more details than that at the moment, but it seems like you can rest assured that Apple won’t be leaving you behind just because your TV doesn’t have an HDMI port.

postheadericon Apple TV update reportedly causing screen flicker issues with HDMI to DVI adapters

We’ve seen reports of strange video behavior with Apple TVs before, and it looks like a new problem has now cropped up with the most recent update. According to a growing number of reports on the Apple support forums, those using an HDMI to DVI adapter to connect the device to their TV seem to have been hit with an annoying issue that causes their screen to flicker every few seconds. That’s apparently happening with a wide range of TVs, and at least some are also reporting the same thing happening even if they aren’t using an adapter. A few folks have apparently been able to fix things in the interim by simply pulling their HDMI cable and plugging it back in, but most are stuck with the annoying issue — or worse, a downgraded 480p signal. Having some similar issues? Let us know in comments.

postheadericon EVGA GeForce GTX 460 2Win has ‘double the win,’ becomes NVIDIA’s first dual-Fermi graphics card

Why, it was only yesterday that we were eyeballing a dual-GF104 board from Galaxy, presuming it an artifact of a 2010 project that went nowhere, but there’s at least one NVIDIA partner that’s going to deliver exactly such a creation, and soon at that! EVGA has just set loose the details of a new GTX 460 2Win graphics card, which ticks along at 700MHz, has 672 cumulative CUDA cores served by 2GB of GDDR5, and reportedly collects more 3D Marks than NVIDIA’s finest card out at the moment, the GTX 580. The company also gleefully reports that pricing of the 2Win model will be lower than the 580’s. It’s interesting that NVIDIA is opting for a pair of the older-gen GF104 Fermi chips here, but then again, those have been big winners with critics and price-sensitive gamers alike, with many touting the use of two GTX 460s in SLI as a more sensible solution than the elite single-card options. Well, now you have both, in a manner of speaking. Skip past the break to see EVGA’s latest in the flesh.

[Thanks, Ben]

postheadericon Motorola Atrix docks literally and figuratively torn apart, hack enables Webtop over HDMI port

Motorola’s got a fine smartphone in the Atrix 4G, but a mildly unsatisfactory pair of modular docks. Good thing, then, that you can gain the most intriguing functionality they add without buying one! Fenny of xda-developers reportedly figured out a way to modify the phone’s APK files to activate Webtop mode over a standard HDMI cable — with no dock needed as a go-between — allowing you to experience the Atrix’s PC-like functionality when connected to any HDMI-ready computer monitor or TV. Of course, you’ll need a rooted and deodexed phone to give it a try, but we hear those aren’t monumentally difficult to come by.

While Fenny’s hack could potentially make the desktop dock obsolete — assuming you’ve got a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard handy — Motorola’s LapDock is still something else. It’s razor-thin, it doesn’t require a separate monitor, and it charges your phone. So, before you write it off entirely, you might at least want to indulge your morbid curiosity about what’s inside, and thus there’s a complete teardown video after the break to show you what the guts look like. Enjoy!
