Dvd playback looks horrible, help?

As stated my dvd playback looks like there is a fog over the screen or the lens was dirty when they were filming the movie and the dvds play crystal clear when using dvd player and tv. Also streaming netflix looks much better than dvd as well. Is there any way to fix this? Will switching from vga cord to hdmi cord help? its painful to watch dvds on my computer and that is so not right.

My system is:
CPU: i5-2500k

GPU: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti ZT-50304-10M Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5

MOBO: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

    Why are you still using VGA lol. And VGA to HDMI youll notice a difference in how crisp and clear it looks. But I'm not certain it would eliminate the problem your having. Try that and see if it makes a difference.
  2. Yes switching to hdmi should help. Vga is analog, while hdmi is digital. You've got a really nice monitor and vid card. There's no reason a dvd should look like crap besides the type of cable connection or a driver/codec issue.
  3. hdmi cables are being shipped but was wondering if there are any other possible issues or is that it?

    I cant be certain if thats the problem until you get your HDMI cables. If it still persists then it could be something wrong with the DVD drive.
  5. that's almost certainly your issue, my friend.
