If the video was created at say 800x600 and you view it at say 1920x1080 you will get this effect (pixelation).

If you right click the file and properties it will give you this info!!
Screen Resolution 1680x1050 pixels at 60 Hz in True Colors

Just hooked up the flat screen 32 inch and the exact same thing happens, except it looks worse because it is bigger, so that means, it is not the monitor,it is not the lead,it is not digital versus analogue,I have tried it with one card ,and I have tried it with the cards crossfired and there is no difference,so this is bringing me back to the cards,or the resolutions as Anthony says or the drivers.

Is that your native screen resolution?

If it is and you play a video file that is 800x600 @ full screen (1680x1050) you lose the video quality.

Another way to get better video output is to use ffdshow (video codec), but its a lot of messing about, unless you know what your doing.

Ok I have changed the resolution to all the different ones available ,and played a different movie than I have in the picture in my first post ,and it is exactly the same,
so it doesn't look like it is the resolution,I have just played one of the movies on my old laptop which has an integrated card on it ,and it was perfect,so now I am really getting baffled as to why it would play on the old, and be so bad on the new and much better specs,I am determined to fix this now ,so any ideas from all would be great,and there will be rep as normal to all that help.

Man, theres nothing wrong with your hardware, its the video file thats crap!!

Download an HDef file 1920x1080p and play it on your 32" it will look fine.

I dont know how else to explain it to you, jfar....

Hi Jim,

I'm still leaning towards it being a driver issue. If it was a pixellation issue, as was suggested by Anthony, then the defect would be noticeable over the whole image and not just in specific areas.

What's the screen res on your laptop? And are you using the exact same software/player settings as the desktop?
