  • Question for the video experts...

    I watch Netflix and Hulu.

    My connection speed is about 2.5Mbs.

    When I watch on my computer the picture is OK. Not great but not bad. It is a 21" trinitron CRT and runs at 1600x1200. The picture is very, very good for everything else.

    I also watch on my 32" Toshiba CRT T.V. Regular old TV. I watch it using PlayOn and the XBOX 360.

    The picture seems so much better on the T.V. even though the resolution is much lower.

    The viewing distance for the computer is about 5'. For the T.V. about 9'.

    Why does it look so much better on the T.V?

    BTW If you have a XBox or Wii or Playstation and also have a netflix/hulu account get PlayON. It just works brilliantly! Also there is a plugin for revision 3. Really cool being able to watch Diggnation or The Totally Rad Show in the living room!
