Better quality / upscaling / hdtv monitor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi

Have been thinking a while about this.


My tv is a 1360*768p screen but it does 1080p,i think upscaled .

If 'm watching a 720p file,would it be better to run my tv's native resolution?

And when watching a 1080p file?


Would love the hear some theories



Tom.

I got a 720p TV too, and while it scales, 1080p looks pretty terrible. Leave the TV at it's native res.

Your GTX 460 will do a much better job downscaling 1080p to 720p than your TV ever will. This plugin for Media Player Classic will give you the best possible scaling quality achievable.

Tricky to install, but it works.

On a separate note, Power DVD does a pretty good job up-scaling videos using it's GPU acceleration feature.

Yes i'm already using the madvr plugin wich works pretty nice with a 460 but not with a 8800GT for example tongue.gif

I'm gaming too at 1080p and they look amazing,its like you cant notice it really in games.

But now i'm on the desktop at 1080p and its not like its extreme blurry or something,my friend has a native 1080p tv and when you can just count the pixels of the text.Here its a bit more blurry.

So for video its best to use 768p to view 720p files because of the lower upscaling?
