    I had to resort to buying a PC2TV kit to make my media centre PC work on my 27" SD LCD TV and it connects though composite/S-Video and the text in XP is so fuzzy I can hardly read anything. It is only for playing movies so I am not too bothered but it would be nice if the text was a bit sharper.

    640x480 is the resolution and cannot go any higher as the screen shakes and text become worse.

    Sorry but you're hitting a basic limitation of composite video, it wasn't designed for high bandwidth use like that.
    How about a VGA->Scart adapter?

    It does have a VGA port but I cannot switch it to PC as I do not have the remote. I'd like to try and find a remote that I can program the PC button to it but then it might be worth trying the VGA to Scart.

    The TV is a Bush LCD27TV005A
