Image quality issues with a HDTV as second monitor. Tags: Tuner Cards HDTV Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: November 26, 2010 8:18 PM in Graphics & Displays Share murchy October 14, 2010 9:54:51 AM Hey All, Not quite sure how to start, so I'm just going to dive right into this: I recently bought a HDTV - a 32" Hisense DVB-T HL81V88 (http://www.hisense.com.au/products/television/detailed/...). I have it connected to my graphics card (ati radeon hd 4870) using VGA (DVI out of the graphics card into a VGA doggle into the VGA input on the TV). The TV's information button says that it's running at 1360x768 @ 60Hz. I also use a 23" Samsung P2350 (http://www.samsung.com/au/consumer/pc-peripherals/monit...) with 1920x1080 @ 60Hz. Basically, It just feels like the TV should be getting a lot better image quality than it is - the resolution FEELS very low, and seems quite grainy. Is there something I'm missing or are TVs (Even full HD ones) still pretty poor as monitors?

If you want 1080P get better HDTV with 1080P (1920x1080) panel resolution.
