I've had a small Brazos HTPC setup on a 46" plasma for a while and have been quite happy with it.
With the advent of a 55" led replacing the ageing CRT in the den I decided I wanted a HTPC there as well so I set out building an i3-3225 on a Z77 board. I use Win 7 (licenced) and XBMC. DXVA is switched on.
Now I'm unhappy with the picture quality. It just seems...too clear. Too much contrast or something. I can't put my finger on it. Best way to describe it is the picture is cold and hard. Cartoonesque, almost.
Watching normal HD TV is fine.
I've been unable to narrow it down. Could it have something to do with refresh rates or something ?
I've been searching this here forum but the information ios somewhat overwhelming. Please help.
