Which model of TV?
I recently got a Panasonic 50' projection TV.
Right now I'm using it as a monitor, using DVI - HDMI cable connecting my 8800 GTS to the TV itself. Due to problem with nvidia driver, I have overscan problems, but picture is very clear and I have no problem running in 1080p resolution which is 1920x1080.
My TV actually have a VGA input as well, so I tried a DVI - VGA cable, but even though the overscan issue is fixed, the screen is somewhat blurry and I can't achieve the max resolution on the TV anymore.
anyone got idea what's causing it.
Which model of TV?
Isn't pretty much all VGA blurry and impossible to read at 1920 x 1080? I thought the max resolution for VGA was somewhere just north of 1024 x 768.
That said, sometimes TV's have limits to the inputs they accept that might be having an impact here. Without knowing the TV model it's hard to say.
Edit: I also recall there may be some issues with Nvidia drivers or the 8800GT in particular having some issues when transferring the signal to a TV.
it's a panasonice 50" LIFI HDTV forgot the model, not at home
but it's blurry almost for all the resolution, not sharp and clear like the DVI-HDMI connection.
Make sure it's a properly shielded cable. Analog paths like VGA can really start to suffer from various degradation problems when you get up to high resolutions like that and over longer lengths, so cable quality becomes far more important.
hmm true I brought a 3rd party one from bestbuy. horrible choice I'm looking at a few on newegg but they are all sold out.
I need dvi-vga Male to male(no gay jokes) cable.
idrisz, those cables you got are too fat. You should have gotten thinner cables - they will work harder and take less time off

Slim nancyboy cables aren't the answer!
so any recommendation on cables?? I dont really mind running at at slightly lower res as long as picture is clear.
I just really hate whenever I setup my Overscan compensation and fix the overscan issue, every time some applications put me in fullscreen mode, it goes back to overscan problem again and I have to restart the pc to fix it.
But an application make a resolution change on the monitor, it disable the overscan compensation, I have to restart pc again.
