    Your TV is re scanning/scaling the image you need to see if your TV has a pc mode for HDMI or a "just scan" option in its settings.

    Nb. Not all TV's have these options.

    That image doesn't seem blurry. You'll have to take a photograph of the screen.

    Is Windows set to the native resolution of the display? Are the edges (such as the taskbar) cropped out (usually a sign of under scan issues)?

    No idea honestly, but it's set to the right resolution the recommended one

    I see why you're having blurry issues. You're using 1024x768, a 4:3 resolution, when HDTVs are widescreen (16:9) and support either 1366x768/1280x720 (on "720p" tvs), or 1920x1080 (on "1080p" tvs). Set your resolution accordingly. Using 1024x768 on any HDTV would be a no-no, since the HD standard on televisions is nearly always widescreen.

    Using a screen resolution that does not match the exact pixel dimensions of an LCD screen will cause it to have to upscale/stretch the images to fill the screen area, resulting in the fuzzyness.

    If it's recommending 1024x768 for your HDTV, then windows is not detecting your TV's supported modes properly. If it allows you, try setting it to 1366x768 (or if not that, 1280x720 that I think some older 720p sets used). I doubt your TV would be 1080p, since it's only 19"... but stranger things have happened.

    Try different ones I guess. Try 1366x768 first since that would usually be the top match for a 19". If you get a blank screen or something, just wait like 20 seconds or whatever and it should return. If your 19" is older, it could potentially be 1280x720, but in that case you wouldn't be able to run metro apps. 1366x768 would be ideal, unless that 19" supports 1080p which i doubt. lol

    huh?, run true 1920 x 1080 HD or forget it. People just don't get it, only experience worth anything is a 1920 x 1080 signal fed to a 1920 x 1080 screen, anything else is really garbage!

    His TV is a 19" and likely won't support the resolution.
