Okay, so I decided to secure a 4:3 CRT HDTV from a thrift store becasue I thought it would made a decent SDTV gaming TV.

So anyway, I plug in my PS2 using component cables (official Sony PS3 ones) and I noticed that there's this weird vertical "fringing" happening on the image. Thinking that perhaps there's something wrong with the TV, I decided to do some tests. I go and grab a DVD calibration disk, but I can't reproduce what I saw. I try a game in progressive mode, it looks fine too. Finally, I try using S-video and the issue disappears on all games. To give you an example of what's going on, I took a couple of photos for comparison (I have little to no experience taking a photo of a CRT screen, for forgive me for the **** quality)



The only clue I've found is that the game in question outputs at 512*416, so possibly that's what causing the weird scaling issues. I don't know, I'm not an expert on A/V. Think anyone here can help?

EDIT: One of the non-problem games outputs at 640*447
EDIT2: Okay, I think I'm seeing a trend here. The other problem game was Castlevania: LoI, which outputs to 512*448. I can assume that it's having issues scaling horizontally?

your pics are blocked from where i am so i can't see for sure, but try putting the tv into movie mode before making any other adjustments. i have a 36hfx71 that had weird colour fringes on the edge of white lines if i watched in any other mode besides movie.

good luck

You can also adjust the tilt in the menu.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
