Better TV Picture?


Standard Member
I've just built my first HTPC with the spec being the following

ASUS A8N-VM CSM motherboard featuring VGA and DVI out, nVidia 6150 graphics with PureVideo support
Silverstone lc11 case
AMD 3800 X2 Dual Core
1GB Ram
Hitachi Deskstar T7K250 NCQ 160GB SATA-II 8MB Cache
HP840i DVDRW Lightscribe
Sweetspot MCE TV card

I've got it connected to a 27" lcd tv using dvi connection but when the picture is fullscreen it can look a bit blocky at times compared to my freeview box. What i need to know is would i get a better picture if i was to put a separate graphics card
Any help would be grateful:thumbsup:

No, I don't think a separate graphics card would help, have you got 1:1 pixel mapping, and have you tried calibrating your display with something like the DVE disc?
