Hi all, i've set my pc up to run through my 32" wharfdale tv but i only get a really clear pic at 800 * 600 pixels.
it's far too big for me and would rather it run at 1024 * 768 but at that level the pixels become blurred and the screen flickers some. Is this a tv problem or is there some software that can help me acvcomplish this???

Standard Def? If so the native resolution will be 720 x 576 or 704 x 576. Providing resolutions larger will cause overscan or a shrunk image (TV and settings available dependent). Providing smaller resolutions will cause underscan or a streched image.

If you've got an 'HD ready' set then the native resolution has to be at least 720p.

There is no reason why your computer shouldn't be able to drive this resolution, but if you post the spec of the graphics card or motherboard (if using onboard graphics). In the mean time, make sure the refresh rate is set to that of the TV if possible.
