I can't help you with the first issue, but with this...
What is your screen resolution? Keep in mind that plain old, analog
cable is approximately equivalent to a digital resolution of 320x200
(give or take), whereas your PC is probably running a screen
resolution 1024x768 or better. Garbage in, garbage out. The picture
quality is only as good as the source. Figure a clean NTSC (ie. from
a DVD) signal is approx. 640x480 (or 720x480) and it can look
questionable depending on the resolution it's scaled to.
