I need help on connecting my laptop to my plasma TV. Here are my hardware specs:
- Dell XPS M1330(display: 13.3 inch, 16:10, 1280x800)
- LG PJ350 plasma TV (display: 42 inch, 16:09, 1024x768)
When I connect my laptop to the TV, the picture quality is very bad. I have tried connected my laptop to my dad's 50" Panasonic TV, the picture is perfect. So, I am pretty sure my laptop is ok.
Here are the reasons that I think might the cause:
Resolution setting on my laptop(I've tried 1024x768, 1168x666, 1280x800, 1980x1080 and many more), but no luck.
I bought a cheap HDMI cable. I don't know if the cable has that much effect on this.
The TV is just defective.
The specs on my laptop just doesn't go with the TV.
If the picture quality can't be improved, I am thinking to return the TV. Please advise if there is something I can do. Thanks in advance.
