    SONY KDL32EX403 PC connection help required

    I bought me the above TV a few weeks back and have connected it to my pc via a CAT5 cable.

    I get a connection to my pc just fine, its just when I play movies the picture quality is quite grainy. Now I used to watch movies via the same cable that was connected to my origional xbox but didnt have this grainy effect? Anyone have this problem or know how to cure it?

    Thanks

    This sounds strange - DLNA can use CAT5 and the 403 is DLNA compatible, I'm not really sure what he's asking...

    He could even mean a VGA cable for all we know...

    I'm right in thinking XBMC worked through VGA?

    Sometimes I wonder why people even bother to help!

    It's not even like he's a newbie either!! 3 months as a member... Ah well - he's not as bad as the 0 feedback scam artists on fs/ft...

    Im trying to stream movies on to my tv, i used to use the xmbc on my xbox which streams the same movies via the same cable spot on?

    do you think it might be the player in the TV? as im guessing the tv is plaing the actual file?
