So mine is not really a problem. I have a Radeon X1050 graphics card and a DLP HDTV. I am connecting via hdmi/dvi cable. I am able to get my desktop to clone to the TV, but I am unable to tweak it to get a) the entire desktop on the TV Screen & :thumbsup: get the image quality I have on my monitor.

Any advice would be appreciated.

What is your screen resolution at? Also, do you know what resolution your TV supports?

When you're using the tv, are you using 1280X720 resolution?

Waiting on your response to the resolution settings. You could try a program called Ultramon. It may help you set your resolution settings.

Sterling- Yes I am trying to use 1280x720, but the only refresh rate that CCC offers is 30h. So when I use those settings the screen looks awful.

CCC is the Catalyst Control Center software for ATI graphics cards.

Have you updated the drivers for your graphics card in a while? If not, download the latest here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx . Download the whole software package that has CCC with it.

Also, what happens if you change the resolution in windows by right clicking on the windows desktop, and going to properties?
