    You could try upgrading to 3.7 and see if this helps:
    http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/...&prod=productsXPdriver&submit.x=13&submit.y=8.

    Alternatively, the quality of cable you use can have an effect on the
    quality of picture you get.

    Finally, it's worth bearing in mind that as the picture you're watching
    (even in Live TV) is MPEG, it has been compressed and it seems that this can
    have an effect on quality.

    Try the new video drivers first and see how you go.

    Good luck!
