Question about Philips Magnavox 26MD357B-37 26 in. LCD TV/DVD Combo
I've had this TV - Magnavox 26MD357B with built-in DVD player - set up as a monitor using a VGA cable to my computer for several months now. Even when I upgraded to a much newer, much better computer, it worked flawlessly. However, I recently changed cables from VGA to HDMI. Upon doing so, I found that the resolution had suddenly expanded past the "boundary" of the screen and had been set to 1920 x 1080. A rudimentary web search indicated that the proper size was 1366 x 766 but setting it to that size made the screen so small that it failed to fill even one-fourth of the screen's space and I seem unable to find the size that fills the screen without overfilling it. Any assistance related to this matter would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

I have the same TV and I found that increasing the DPI percentage (Dots Per Inch) you could reduce the fuzzy stuff, but in its still no where close to being the same quality as VGA. Hope that helps.

Your digital box should have aspect settings as well. When watching HD TV and or movies there is a possibility to get the black bars on top and bottom. It all depends on the ratio it was filmed in.

SOURCE: Picture Size
Keep in mind that not all programs and show are in widescreen format. When set to normal, you will get those black bars on the sides because the program is sized for the older TV's. Some TV's will have a zoom option, but that will cut off some of the top and the bottom of your picture.
Until everything goes widescreen, you are stuck in normal with those black bars or widescreen with the fat people.
I hate distortion in my TV image, so I am perfectly fine with my TV on normal.
