Needless to say, it looks like ****. That's the highest resolution I can get on this TV without the screen going black and giving me a no signal message. Anyone know why? Stuck with using my TV as a monitor until my real monitor gets sent back from the company.

What kind of cable are you using? And what is the brand & model/resolution of the TV?

No idea what the native resolution of the TV is. Got it from a furniture store on an impulse buy as I needed something bigger for my Xbox gaming and it was one helluva deal. I'm guessing 720p since it gives me a black screen when I try to switch my Xbox to HD mode on it. Using the standard VGA cable with an adapter since that's all it has to plug into.

This! Your are trying to put the wrong resolution put 1360x768 and it should be fine. Comming from a TV sale rep.

What do you mean by "looks"? Is it blurred, stretched or mutilated?

Look at the model number of your TV and type it into google... Is it really that hard?

720p is really 1280x720, so you'd be lucky if it did that resolution (1360x768).

You could measure it and find the pixel/dot size (you never told us the model #) to figure out what the true resolution is.

Anything anyone here would do is just ask you for the model number (again) and then google it for you... I mean really. What are you expecting here?

I used a 32'' 720p and 26'' 720p as a monitor for a while.What I came to realize is the intended viewing distance is farther away than what we use them for as monitors.As televisions they look good from 8+ feet away.As monitors and the viewing from 2 feet away they aren't going to look as good as we would like.I liked one as a monitor due to the large screen but realized it just wasn't made for that purpose.

Dude

What exactly are you using this for? xbox or PC? or dvd/tv?

If your hooking up your PC to it, thats exactly why it doesnt look good. i have a 42" 1360x768 tv, and i used to use my pc on it before i got my monitor when i started my build. TVs just arent ment for desktop browsing or whatever, the pixels are HUGE compared to a monitor. My 22" is 1920x1080, and my 42" tv 1360x768 - the pixels must be 5x the size on my tv than on my computer screen lol. if i stand close, i can actually see three horizontal lines on each signal displaying red blue and green colours each.

Maybe you have a setting munched on your tv, try resetting it to factory settings - it could possibly be set up to convert a HD signal to a SD signal or something....
