I have my computer in my living room and displayed on a 47 inch Philips 1080P LCD TV as a HTPC. I am having problems getting good settings for viewing from afar.
I have tried setting it to 1080 resolution (everything too small) then increasing Font up to 150%. Works OK, but text is extremely sharp and often unreadable. Also not all windows/programs increase to 150% and are unreadable.
Tried 1280 by 768 resolution at 125% font size. Things are a little blurry and stretched, but best for text and windows fitting.
Currently trying 720 resolution 125% font increase. Text is too sharp again. Also with increasing font size many un-resizeable windows do not fit properly on screen. See attachment on how window cuts bottom off.
Does anyone have any suggestions on good settings, or what I think I need. It would be nice to be able to use the 720 resolution with no increase of font size. and just use a theme that is bigger. I don't know if this would work or not. I would also need to change the font to something bigger, not just magnify it.
I am really not sure how to do all thins though. any help would be appreciated.
