trying to figure out how to imporve the signal on my htpc a bit.. the tv signal is split from my box via a 4 way splitter but the cable that goes into the tv is ALOT better of a picture then the ones going into the htpc and what displays on my tv on my htpc...
just to get a picture ive got a amd 3200, 1 gig ram, geforce 6600 256 meg vid card, mce 500 and windows xp mce..
what i meant by the above was that i have my cable wire from outside split into 4, 2 into the htpc, 1 into the tv and 1 to my cable modem.. when i dont use my htpc for live tv but just the normal tv mode on my tv my picture is perfect.. but when i use my htpc for live or recorded tv the picture quality is not near as good. im using the happaugen(sp?) mce 500 tuner card and im in the vancouver region.. also if it helps my computer to tv setup is a monster dvi to hdmi cable on a sony 55" tv..
decoder software being used is the nvidia purevideo? the newest nvidia one
