    Someone has to have experienced this as well.. TV/Monitor.

    Hi guys,

    So I just bought this 32 inch Samsung TV (1080p)

    I plugged it in , set display to only show Desktop to the TV..

    and while it shows, the fonts and everything are not that clear..

    I"m connected by HDMI cable..

    The reason this is an issue, is because I just replaced a previous 32inch Olevia TV - that I had connected by VGA cable but it was more CLEAR than the new Samsung 1080p TV with HDMI!?

    has anyone experience this using TV and HDMI?

    Ok nevermind.. I think I got it.. see im good at doing my own troubleshooting and yelling at everyone else.. right..


    the solution is I had to change the "type" in my Device Input on the actual TV... on the TV ... not the computer..

    I changed the input type to "PC"

    it said "edit name" on the tv in the menu...
