Media Center PC question

By bminich ·

I just moved my old PC with an FX5500 video card to my living room to be used as a media center PC. I ran S-video from the graphics card to the TV (Sony Wega Trinitron 27") and I get a dispaly, but it is quite blurry. The only res options are 800x600 and the one lower than that. Available color quality settings are 32 and 16. Tried a bunch of different options, played with the contrast on the tube itself (and many other twaeks on the tv as well) and still getting a pretty blurry picture. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to sharpen up the picture so that I am able to read the text (mostly want to be able to read folder names for my music)?

But your TV probably doesn't have the resolution necessary to do it. I have the same problem on my TVs because they aren't HD. Video playback looks fine, but the fonts in Winodws weren't designed for display on TVs. You might be able to mess with the fonts some and it could look better.
