Ok so I have a Samsung 46 in led with a Native resolution of 1920x1080 this one for reference:

I also have it connected to my Desktop (with a 570gtx GPU).

When I play videos through the PS3 (as a media center) the video quality is fine, however when I switch Monitor inputs to the TV(just playing through the desktop--->tv as a monitor)...the videos always look blurry?

Why is this?

and is there any solutions to fix it?

How exactly are you connecting the TV to the PC? On the PC< what resolution are you trying to use for the TV? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Feb 4 '13 at 0:13
Also look for how to set your tv to 1:1 pixel mapping/disable overscan/whatever samsung call it. – Justin Feb 4 '13 at 1:02
TV to PC is through an brand new HDMI mini cable. the tv resolution im using is 1920x1080 (which is native for the tv) – user68142 Feb 4 '13 at 4:31
Is it just videos that are blurry, or everything that gets sent from the computer to the TV (including UI elements)? – Marcus Chan Feb 7 '13 at 5:07
Seems like most things are blurry TBH, but it's especially noticeable in videos – user68142 Feb 7 '13 at 5:26
