Just converted my home PC into a HTPC and everything works great except for one thing, the SVIDEO image quality is very poor. The vertial edges are "squiggly" when there is alot of bright colors on the screen. Best way to describe it is a big "wave" accross the edge of the screen. This goes away once when the entire desktop background is a darker color (like blue). Even when watching DVD's the image will distort vertially when bright images enter the screen. My current setup is as follows: TV: Toshiba 27" CRT (non highdef) PC: ATI Radeon 9600 256MB (Sapphire) Asus A7N8X-VM (Nforce2) 512 MB Memory 120 GB Seagate 8MB Cache HDD LG 4082B DVD-RW Anyways, I've tried other video cards (this time nvidia) and the same thing happens. it's quite distracting. I've tried the following resolutions and they all do the same thing (640x480 and 800x600). It's not my TV because I also used another TV (19" Sony) and the same thing happened. So is the SVIDEO on PC cards just bad ? I have component video inputs on my TOSHIBA TV (i was suprised) so would the DVI > Component adapter from ATI fair better results ??
