I have a spare computer and I have thought to use it for showing DVD's and playing games. At the moment I have a TV with just two scart connections, and although I can connect through an Svideo/scart lead, the picture is very distorted. The graphics card is a Matrox Millennium G450 Dual Head. Does anyone know the best setup to use, even the best type of TV to use,ie. digital, LCD or any with Svideo?. Or do I need to add or change anything in the computer.
I wwould like to clarify my last posting. My problem is to get a clear image of the desktop onto my tv screen. I have reduced the resolution as much as I can, and get a double image, ie. two desktops in b/w. Is it possible to use a tv as a monitor, if so what type of tv. is recomended.
yes u can. I am using a philips pixel plus screen, using svideo and the pixel enhancement setting with 100hz scanning. I have used a 50hz before and that was awful for text but was still JUST readable. Some t.vs will not accept a signal from a computer, something about 5 volt output they dont like i read once.
