Default HDMI text quality bad, video good

Okay I have a 720p hdtv hooked up to pc through hdmi. The thing is well, picture quality is fine, but the text is bad. I've tried tweaking the settings a bit, text looks a bit smoother but not as great as it should still a little sktechy. The video card running, I'm not too familar with ati's but I think it's a 4200 HD.

It's set to 60 hz 32 bit it's running a 1360 x 768 resolution

What's wrong? Any ideas

Check you ClearType settings. For XP you will have to download the ClearType powertoy. For Vista/Win7 go into the Control Panel and use the search feature and type in ClearType. It will bring up the wizard to adjust the settings accordingly.

That's exactly what I did, but still seems a bit fuzzy

Which OS are you running? Have you tried setting it to 59Hz?

I haven't tried changing the Hz yet I'll try it today, and I'm running XP which i don't think is the problem

Make sure your resolution is set at the TV's native resolution. If it's not you will get fuzzy text no matter what you do.
