    Hi all,

    Can any one give an advice to have the best resolution that I should adjust
    my system for the output to my TV? current is 960xsomething, watching the
    movie is ok, but watching LiveTV screen seems to be shifting to the right on

    My PC monitor is NEC 19 inch and S-video output to a 27 inch monitor.

    I did some adjustment following in 'Settings' of MCE2005, but it screws up
    something that now my live TV just keep flickering...I think I will re-setup
    the Media Center wizard as the beginning.

    You will not be able to use any better than 1024x768 over s-video.

  4. If you are in North America (NTSC signal) then you should set your
    resolution to 720x480 for TV output and turn on overscan. This is the
    native resolution of your TV signal and will ensure no scaling happens
    when watching TV.

    You should be able to set your Windows XP desktop to whatever you want,
    then run through the configure your display wizard in MCE. If you
    select CRT via SVideo it will automatically set this for you when
    running the MCE application only.
