What's the refresh rate of your tv...and also, what is the refresh rate for your tv on your computer? Last time I tried hooking up a tv with VGA I had to manually change that setting before it would work.
Sorry everyone, for some reason the default res was giving me grief but every other one appears to be working, so onto my next question. How do I optimize my visual settings? Currently this is very hard on my eyes. It's too bright, is there any way I can adjust the brightness for my PC without simply lowering the brightness on my tv screen? Also I've played around with resolution and font size DPI but I still have to strain to look at the screen. What am I doing wrong?
