Streaming VIDEO from my PC on my HDTV = Quality Loss?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have my Sony Bravia connected to my network through ETHERNET. On my TV, I can access videos that are shared on my network, however the picture doesn't seem to look as good as it does on my PC. The video is 1080P, my monitor is just a regular 22" with max res @1680X1050. My questions are, does accessing the videos from a shared folder lower the quality any? Would I be better off buying a DVI to HDMI cable and streaming videos that way? does it just look better on my 22" because the screen is smaller?

Doesn't look as good in what manner?

Your TV might have some filter that rapes the image, but we can't tell unless you're more descriptive.

I guess not as detailed? Hard to explain but on my PC I can see the guys face, detailed. On my TV, not so much. Kinda like pixels are maybe being stretched? Not as crisp,clear. I've tried to change the noise reduction from high to off, but still doesn't help. Tried changing the widescreen to normal vs full, doesn't help.

Playing video's that aren't 1080P on my TV from the shared folder look like absolute trash, but I'm pretty sure that's because its a lower res being stretched to fit the TV right?

Another thing, when playing the video thats 1080p on my tv through the shared folder, it has black bars on both top/bottom? Shouldn't this be shown full screen since the video is 1080P?

HDTV is SONY BRAVIA KDL 40HX800
