Hello have I a newer 720p Toshiba 32" in bedroom (2nd set) with an HP slimline PC Althon II x 2 250 750gb hdd 4gb pc 1333 ram win 7x64
the PC only has a VGA out. with on board nvidia 6150se graphic chip (2nd PC also) . The PC also has it's own 24" monitor I'm using a VGA splitter pigtail and 2 cables and set the res to whatever screen I'm using.
. I stream Netflix and free Hulu etc. from PC to TV when not watching Dish . picture quality from PC to TV could be better
sharpness/brightnees , color . Not too many picture settings available on TV VGA input only bright and contrast as opposed all avail on to HDMI . The Dish TV HD via HDMI picture on the other hand is excellent ..
Internet bandwidth /wifi is ok for HD .I'm outputting 1366x768 PC to TV( the panels native resolution ).
My question is would an HD 5450/6450 increase picture quality much via HDMI to TV over the present VGA out from the 6150se onboard chip .
Also would a Roku be just as good I read Netflix sends 720p HD on to ROKU box but maybe not not on PC. . via chrome or** browser . If the ROKU HD PQ is good I might just as well do that Std Def from PC is OK .
Of course I could always use independent dual monitor support and more TV picture settings available when using PC /TV . I have streamed 720p and 1080p from you tube PC to TV it looked OK but still not as good as Dish so I'm thinking the on board video and VGA at least with this TV is lacking.. The main set a big plasma has a PS3 so Netflix and everything else looks real good on that.
