Vizio 26" LCD TV As monitor - ASUS EAH3450 Video Card - HDMI Display mode looks bad
Posted on 2009-05-14
I have a Vizio 26" TV/Monitor (VA26LHDTV10T) connected to the HDMI port using an ASUS EAH3450 video card. The system is a Dell 530s, Intel Core2, 4gb RAM, Windows XP Professional SP2. The display looks okay, but not very good. It's not crisp like my other LCD display, the text seems to "glow" with a white border and it all looks pixelated. I know this is not a great description, but what I'm wondering is do I need a specific monitor driver for this setup? The monitor type shows up as "Plug and Play Monitor" and I've tried to use other drivers such as sony, samsung LCD drivers. I've tried all HDTV modes for the display, i.e. 720p60 NTSC, 1080i25 PAL, I've also tried all possible resolutions from 640x40 looks like lego land, to 1920 x 1080. I've also tried all refresh rates, from 35 to 120 Hertz. Is there a trick, driver, or setting I can use to dial in the appearance for this monitor/video card using the HDMI port?
