Hi,

I have a Dell Latitude CPxJ, PIII/750MHz.

I recently got a little adapter (Dell) to enable me to connect the video
output (7-pin mini-DIN) to the composite input on a portable TV. I was a bit
disappointed as the quality is pretty bad. Actual videos are ok but not
great, depending on the quality of the actual clip, but the Windows desktop
is 'orrible. It would be impossible to do a demonstraion of anything without
the viewers getting blinding headaches.

Is this poor quality normal for this model of Latitude. Is there any
adjustment I could make? Or is it my tv (although that seems ok with other
composite inputs)?

(P.S. I realise that using some other input to the TV would be better than
composite.)

Thanks, John

neither. TV resolution is very low quality and the sharp lines of most
fonts and such on the screen don't work well.

I agree. It just will never be very good.

Make sure you're running Windows on the TV at 800x600 or better 640x480
