i recently connected my pc to my panasonic viera lcd television set(32",720p capable) through the analogue[VGA] connector.
i watched some hd trailers on this setup and they worked and looked quite good.
but the lcd tv doesn't support resolutions of above 1024*768 when in the 'pc mode'.
1. so was i actually watching videos in 720p HD or did they just look better due to larger/better screen(my monitor is a standard 17" CRT).

2.if i were to connect the pc and the tv through dvi-hdmi cable,could it help me select higher resolutions? [ Currently the monitor is running at 1024*768; when i try higher resolutions through the tv setup or through nvidia control panel, the screen blacks out.
Would appreciate any suggestions.

Core2duo E7300; intel DG43NB; XFX nvidia 9500GT[1*DVI out, 1*VGA out];Kingston 2GB DDR2 800Mhz; ; sata hdd.

dont use the vga out=analog video output. You will get a clean sharper image if you use the DVI to hdmi cable because it's digital. THE TV ONLY SUPPORT 720p=you can't set the resolution any higher regardless of the cable. 1024x768....the 768 is the 720p. In tv term 720p is 1280x720 progressive scan. People just say 720p, 1280 is understood. Like 1080p is 1920x1080. If you want to set to higher resolution; you need to buy another TV=one that is 1080p
