Do I have to adjust any settings on the tv to maximize the video/audio quality?
I would like to connect my Dell XPS m1210 laptop to my Samsung 37 inch Full HD television (unfortunately I don't know the exact model name but I bought it 13 months ago and at that time it was a brand new model) with the intention of watching high definition (and sometimes perhaps a bit lower def) video (both downloaded and from discs). As the laptop doesn't have either DVI or HDMI outputs I'm left in a bit of a pickle. I'm looking for a way to get the best possible picture and sound quality (just for the tv, don't have surround system).
Is Firewire in any way usable and a choice worth looking at?
If I use VGA which I've understood basically only supports 800x600 resolution, can I somehow upgrade the quality? And what would the differences both in practice and on paper between VGA and HDMI connections in my case be?
My laptop seems to have two audio outputs, do I have to use a cable with two pins on one end and one on the other to get the best audio possible or is there another plausible audio solution?
Thank you in advance!
