Just bought the LG 42" 42LD490 from Currys. I've managed to get it set up via a dvi to hdmi lead so that I can use the pc through it. I did this before (using just a dvi lead) with my previous 720p 32" tv. My previous tv looked sharp as. I was expecting this one to look better, it's a better quality tv, and full HD which should make up for the increase in size.
The text doesn't look very sharp at all, and the icons aren't great. It looks like my 800 x 600 projector when I try to put 1024 x 768 through it, obviously in that case there aren't enough dots so it interpolates (I think the right word!). Now there should be enough dots here, so I can't see the problem. I've got a dvi -> hdmi lead v1.3 which should be enough. I've tried different res/tv options and can't get it much better. Game setting on cinema zoom aspect ration seems to be the best, not alot of difference between 1920 x 1080 and 1680 x 1050.
Phoned LG and they said to change the font setting to a bigger one, which of course makes it look better, but that's not the point, I want the bigger res with standard size text, otherwise I might as well have just bought a 720p again!
Any suggestions or anyone who has one can help me please??
