I'm just finishing my install/setup of mythtv, and I'm testing out some
different resolutions and such. So far I haven't been to happy with the
way the picture looks on the TV.
Hardware: AMD 2400XP 512MB
Video: GeForce 2 GTS 64MB DDR w/TV out.
I've got my desktop screen set to 800x600. I'm currently capturing at
480x480 (Default I think)
I've tested out both compression codecs, with divx(mpg4) looking worse
by far, even with all values set as high as possible.
I've also found that sometimes a straight svideo cable looks worse then
if I use the svideo-rca converter that came with the card. My TV is a
50 inch HDTV ready rear-projection unit. My divx movies that I play
through mythvideo look pretty respectible, just not live TV.
Where should I look first to try an improve the quality of my picture?
Should I look into a VGA->SVideo dongle? Do I need to change some other
settings? What are your settings?
Thanks in advance,
