I’ve begun work on a Media P.C. for all of my Shows, Music, Pictures, Etc…
I currently have an old GeForce Fx5200 in the computer and I really don’t feel I willl need anything better since it is only running movies and DVD’s to my T.V.
The video Card has VGA out, DVI out, and S-Video Out. Currently I have it running s-video to my TV.
My T.V. is a 30" Sanyo CRT HDTV 720p. The video’s look decent at best, but when trying to read text or anything, it is blurry. I’ve tried resizing the resolution to as low as possible, and the lowest the Computer will go while hooked up to the TV is 800x600.
My questions is this…
I have an available set of Component slots free on the TV.
If I buy an DVI to component cable, would the resolution go up and be clearer on the TV? Also, would I need a specific Video Card or do the cable “Just work” as though it was plugged into a Standard monitor.
I remember reading somewhere that S-Video only has a max resolution of 640x480 or something like that.
Thanks for any help Chums.
