Default Movies on a PC vs movies on a TV

I love watching movies on my PC seems to have better screen resolution then my 1080p TV DVD writer does. What is your opinion? Is a PC unable to match a TV DVD for playing movies? Is it equal? or does a PC give better quality?

Probably has something to do with having a graphics card on your PC. That and a smaller screen makes for a crisper picture.

Which one is better will depend on the quality of your monitor vs the quality of your tv. I always watch movies on my tv and think it has much better picture quality than my monitor but my tv is a 65" 1080p DLP and my monitor is a 19" crt.

My monitor definately looks better, but then again its 1920x1200 res compared to my 4 year old 720p tv. Although i'd much prefer to watch it at 42" than 24".

that is around the 1080i resolution so that explains that

YA the tv supports 1080i but 720p looks better.
