Some odd years ago, I bought my first VIZIO flat screen 32″ HDTV.
Model 3221VL, to be precise! 🙂
It didn’t take me long to find the proper cable to run from my laptop to the TV.
Now that same TV is on its third PC!
I mean, I have the PC within 2 feet of the TV, and was bugged that the PC screen looked much sharper.
Some weeks ago, I was watching this movie about monsters in the bottom of a caving system, and man, if bugged me that I couldn’t see the monsters in the dark!!! Really bugged me!
Anyway, I fumbled around with the VIZIO remote, found “picture” as a menu choice. For years, “picture” has been on “standard,” probably because I have been too stupid to mess with it. I figured “standard” meant ” all purpose.”
I have now settled in on “vivid” under the “picture” choice. I wanted to choose “game,” because we have so many gamers in the family (David actually works for Intel under the gamers banner), but “vivid” matches my PC best.
I also used an image from a screen saver while matching things up. I used a picture of an icy riverbank our son Sean took. I now have a fairly decent match between PC and TV!
I could fine-tune the TV picture even further, but for now, I am happy to have come this far!!
You can find advice all over the Internet on how to fine tune YOUR HDTV, but I only used my own taste as a guide. Here is a guide from Consumer Reports, for example.
Happy fine tuning!!!
