Samsung TV Blurry with Video Game

by indoscot / February 23, 2007 3:23 PM PST

I just bought a Samung LN-S2338W HDTV and connected my Playstation 2 to it. I used the RGB cable to connect it to the TV. I noticed that the TV became quite blurry and was not as sharp as it is when watching cable. Please advise me on how I may be able to fix this problem.

Don't think anything has been broken.

It probaly just a resolution thing. You need a newer console, hehe; or maybe a gamebridge adapter might help.

PS2 and high-def TV's don't get along

I played Shadow of the Colossus on a 32" LCD and when I switched back to my SDTV the picture was much sharper.

Don't know what's wrong

Yeah, I don't see why its happening. I mean you would think that if it's a better TV it would make the picture much sharper but it doesn't seem to be doing that. Please, if anyone has any ideas let me know.

Because your LCD TV is a fixed pixel display with roughly 3-4 times the number of pixels that the signal is actually outputting it has to try and fill in all those extra lines of resolution and pixels as best it can, some TV's are actually quite good at this to the point where you won't see a quality difference but most do only an adequate or bad job. If you play a game with progressive scan you'll see a noticeable quality difference though (for the better). Also if you plan on watching DVD's on this TV I highly recommend an upconverting DVD player because a good one will deliver a much better picture.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
