connecting computer to flat panel (plasma) tv

by tubers / October 30, 2003 5:22 AM PST


New at this so any help would be greatly appreciated. We connected a plasma tv and crt monitor to a machine running Win 98se equipped with an ati radeon 9000 pro graphics card. The display works on both monitor and tv, but the tv picture is blurry and I can't seem to find the right resolution to get the picture to fill the screen. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on this? Do I need a different graphics card?

I've been fairly unhappy with every TV Out I've tried.

If you are going to try another card, make your needs known and tell them the card is coming back if it doesn't work proper.

I'm on card number 8.
