Progressive v interlaced and all that Jazz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi folks. May I first of all apologise for my lack of knowledge (I won't bore you with the full story of why I need the following but wondered if you could help)

Basically I find pc monitors to sharp and this doesn't agree with my nervous system. I understand that lcd monitors refresh progressively whilst lcd tvs are still interlaced and I don't get the same negative reaction from tv.

Anyway what I would like to know is whether there is anything I can download or do to my graphics card which would allow me to run interlaced on screens and laptops which are usually progressive. I understand this is a very rare request but any help would be massive appreciated as would any ideas about making the image softer (could I do something to my VGA cable etc?)

Anyway I probably sound like a confused nutter, so will leave you in peace, but seeing as everything these days is about higher definition it may be interesting for someone to come up with an LD answer

In windows 7 I can right click on the desktop -> screen resolution. Then click advanced settings, then List All Modes (in the adapter tab). Then i have a bunch of interlaced options.
