by garbage, I mean it looks like I'm watching in 480i. When I hit the recall button on my TV, it says it's showing in 720p, but there's no way what I'm seeing is HD.
It must be some other issue, but I don't know what. Here's the rundown of what I have...
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 925
4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2
BIOSTAR MCP6P M2+
512MB GeForce 8400 GS
8 Mbps internet
I have dual displays (LCD Monitor by VGA and 52" Panasonic LCD TV by a 25' DVI cable w/HDMI converter) set at 1280x720. Windows 7 and/or nVidia won't let me set the resolution to anything else when in dual display mode. I have tried it in single display mode on the TV at a higher resolution and it still looks bad. Previously I had the TV hooked up by the VGA and it looked bad then too (TV said it was 480p).
Oh and I know the picture can look better because I often watch ESPN3 on a different big screen HDTV via PlayOn and even though its only 480p, it looks much better.
Any and all ideas would be great. Thanks!
