Recently got a new Sharp LED HDTV and using it as my monitor, having problems with resolution.

It says 1080p 1920x1080 60hz will work fine and yeah i can see the monitor, but its not HD at all everything seems off..i also have to resize the screen when i set it to 1080p 1920x1080 60hz to 1804x1014 1080p 60hz so i can see the whole screen.

i thought something must be wrong because its not crisp but when i run full screen things like XBMC or a game its crisp and HD looking.

I got it going from myGeforce 8800gs DVI - HDMI. thinking this would be fine?? am i wrong??

✔ Best Answer
HD TVs generally use 16:9 screen ratio. Computer monitors generally are 16:10. 1920x1090 is 16:9.

The solution is to update your graphic card drivers and hopefully you will have 1920x1080 available then. IF you already have 1920x1080 available then try using the TVs settings to obtain a full screen. If you don’t want a distorted picture it is best to use 16:10 and best to use the native resolution of 1920x1080.

Sometimes just changing the display type in your settings will allow you to get it set correctly.

Some TV's also have a way to select if you are using tv output or computer as a choice of input to TV. It may work better if you select the tv as a choice instead of the computer input.
