That is awesome I think I am going to look into that once I get my house. I'm not actually even worried about building one that is small though, I will just mod my walls/cabinets to hide or enclose the pc. That is acutally one reason I got my first pc in the frist place. So I could use my ATI AIW to play video on my tv.
One thing I have often wondered, is how a show like The Screen Savers, or Call for Help (on TechTV) get their picture such good quality on their televisions. When I put my pc out to a tv the desktop and words are all blurry. Theirs looks very crisp and clear, anyone know why or how?
my home system has the big TV right next to the main server tower, and it outputs to the TV. I use the PC as a video recorder / player and its all linked to the cable TV and surround sound. I have long supposed that eventually the PC will hit the living room.
Yes but does your desktop look crips? Mine is VERY blurry, I have tried it on multiple TV's
Same problem with me poert. I try using TV-out but the quality is terrible. No idea as to why, though. I would play videos from my PC with my TV, but It's just terribly blurry!
The videos I play look very good, Even if I play a game like CS (I tried a long time ago) it looks decent. Just the text in the start bar, background, etc. If I were to open an IE window, I would have to strain my eyes to read what it said.
Mine are crisp Poert - and I don't do anything special - I can just run an SVHS cable out to the television and it's very pretty - even my games look good as long as I drop res to 800x600.
yes I knew you had to drop to 800x600, but it just bothers me that I can't get it to work well. I am thinking of getting the new AIW 8500, I found it for pretty cheap online, I wonder if that will help.
I wonder if it would help me in game play as well?
I just watch the dvds, divx, etc, on the tv. Everything else is on monitors...
