1) You are likely using the S-Video output of your video card. S-Video is Standard Definition. Not Hi-Def like your TV is. Component cables are Hi-Def, but since the origination of the signal is Reg-Def, you'll never get a true Hi-Def picture. DVI is a Hi-Def interface, and using that will allow you to get a Hi-Def signal to your TV.
2) Your TV likely supports 1080i. You vid cards max resolution falls short of 1080i. This means that whatever picture you send to your TV is NOT 1080i.
You will need the following to make a nice picture on your TV from your computer:
1) Get a vid card that supports at least 1920×1080 resolution (1080i).
2) Get a Hi-Def cable. This can be a VGA or DVI cable. Not S-Video.
Read Above I am not using a S video but an analog RGB like a standard Monitor (tv has connection for that.)
it was the resolution that I figgured to be the problem as when I display high res pictures they are brilliantly clear, but text gives me headaches and is fuzzy
so a higher resolution card will make a difference for text ? I figgured this might be it but wasn;t sure because it dosn;t appear to have to distort pictures with the current resolution so why would it text?
