I am setting up a HTPC,

The following are true

I am using a HDMI > HDMI cable (I have also checked the cable by replacing it with another one)
I am outputting via a 9300 or a GTS250 (so not the video card that is at fault)
I can output from either video card using HDMI or D-SUB
TV can input via PC/D-SUB or HDMI
TV is a Logic 40" and it is a 1080p display with native Res of 1920/1080
TV is set to 'Dot-to-dot'
Refresh has been checked @ 35/30/50/59/60 all are blurry

The PC/D-SUB picture is pefectly clear (like a monitor), the HMDI is fuzzy/blured, There have been many many many posts about this on lots of different forums, yet not decernable answer.

Why is a 1:1 pixel ratio from a digital output to a digital input on a digital device blurry? running native resolution. I'm assuming some sort of overscan issue, but running a 1:1 ratio should remove.

Anyone know what is causing this issue ?

Many Tv's seem to do this, and I'm still entirely unsure why. I have the exact same problem, and find that (weirdly) it looks much better over VGA.

If you can, use a VGA cable, I'm sure it will look much better. Hopefully someone will have an ides why it does this.

VGA cable wont transmit BluRay though as it does not include the encrytion

You can use a VGA > HDMI adapter, but thier is no point, I might as well do VGA > VGA as VGA > HMDI dont include HDCP

You need to change the "sharpness" in your Tv settings.

Sharpness is set to minimum, its not that.
