I just got my new LCD today it's a Dell W2306C, and so far its been really bad, I hooked up my Xbox 360 to it and at 720p and 1080i, my SDTV looks better than it. If I go up close to something then it will look pretty good but not much better than my SDTV, and it gets even worse when I am farther from objects, it just gets more aliased and bad quality, does anyone know what could be wrong?

I don't have any personal experience with either xbox or this LCD, but how are you connecting to the display, via component, VGA or DVI?


Is it possibly there's an anti-aliasing function that needs to be enabled on the player/games to lessen the jaggies?


Do you see any difference in aliasing between 720p or 1080i?

Ive tried connecting it both component and vga....



720p/1080i/vga all 3 look pretty bad...the thing is, in a game, if I zoom into something like a car in a replay it looks really good, but as I start to zoom out, the quality gets a lot worse and its aliases a lot more :(

I am no expert on gaming (which is why I pulled the previous post shortly after posting it), but maybe there's some sort of anti-aliasing feature on the game or player that needs to be enabled. The greater clarity of the LCD could perhaps be making any aliasing artifacts more vivid than a standard def TV as well.


You might find some more informed opinions in the xbox thread that should be floating around here somewhere.

Did you change the xbox 360 resolution setting from the dashboard? The default I think is 640x480. I know on my 19 monitor I could see the difference when I changed it to 1280x1024 or something like that.
