What resolution is better?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
1280*720 (HDReady, 720p) or 1280*768?
And why when I set resolution on 720p, everything is hazy? My tv is HDReady (MAG L32M81 LCD), My GPU is gtx 460.

HDReady TVs have 768 vertical pixels. x720 is being stretched, that's why it becomes blurry

Ok, I made you 3 PNGs with parallel lines of 1 pixel. Open them in Paint or so, without any zooming. If each line is exactly 1 pixel wide, and no blurring occurs, you have found the correct vertical/horizontal resolution

That's how I found the res of my TV

You just open the one with Vertical lines with Paint on your TV (Has to be Paint, cause other programs apply zoom-in or zoom-out in order to fit the screen, which ruins the efect totally and makes the pictures useless )
Then step back and look at the TV. If the lines are straight and equal, and you get equally spread gray color, then you have the appropriate horizontal resolution. (1280x768)
Then do the same with the vertical resolution. (1280x768)
You can change the res, while the image is open, so you'll see which resolution causes "waves" in the image, and which keeps them clean.

On a TV with 768 vertcal pixels, set on a 720 resolution, the image with the Horizontal lines will have blurry "waves".
A TV with 720 vertical pixels, set on a 768 resolution will also result in blurry "waves".
They are very easy to notice, the image will not look like even gray, but will have lighter and darker segments.
On a TV with properly set resolution, all lines will be exactly 1 pixel wide, no blurring, no waves
