I have an older Maxent plasma TV. It is hooked it up to an HTPC running Windows 8 through my Denon AVR via HDMI. Windows recommends 1024 x 768 resolution. Is this really the best resolution?
I tried 1920 x 1080i. But, when viewing stuff on the desktop it looks terrible. My TV says it supports the following via HDMI: 720 x 480i, 720 x 480p, 1280 x 720p, and 1920 x 1080i all at 60Hz.
I lose video for a few seconds each time I switch between Media Center and Desktop. Windows or maybe my TV is seemingly "recalibrating" the display resolution. It's a minor annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless. Any advice?
