My friend wants to connect his PC to his HTDV so he can play UT2003. He's got a decent video card ( can't remember which) and an OK PC. He's willing to upgrade everything if our test will work.


Here's my thinking, please correct me if I'm wrong. Since both the TV and the Video card have DVI inputs, I can just buy a cable and connect the two. Go into the ATI video card settings and play with monitor settings to tile(?) the monitor to the TV. I read about tweaking the games .ini file over at htpc news


Is that the gist of it? Thanks to all for your advice and help.

find out what the model of the TV is and what the Video card is. if you just download the latest drivers for the video card (depending if its a decent ATI or Nvidia) the latest drivers for both brands of cards have great built in support for connecting and setting up the correct resoltions for the TV.


Now getting the video game to play in teh larger format, if the TV is a 16:9 tv then you'd want to make sure that UT2003 can play in that rez.
