Hi,

I got a 32'' HDTV and now set up to my computer as a monitor.
I seem to put the right screen resolution that the Manuel said.

I like things not stretched out.

Thanks

Can you give us the model number of your HDTV so we can lookup the specs and give you the optimum resolution for it while using your computer please?

According to the manual, you should set your screen size to 1366X768.

Let me know if this straightens things up.

though I didn't have the option for the one you said though I put 1360X768. That was the closeted I could put to what you said.

Let's test. See if you can set to 1024X768 and see if the screen ( part you can see like the start button and the time ) disappear from view off the screen.

If I'm understanding your correctly, then when you change the screen to 1360x768, you cannot see the full start button or the time correct?

If so, you may need to change your refresh rate. Are you using XP, Vista, 7?

Ok.

I missed something in the manual yesterday. The manual states that in PC Mode it supports:

640X480 60HZ / 800X600 60HZ / 1024X768 60HZ

So, when you set the screen size any higher than 1024X768, the screen will move as you move from one side to another. So, it looks like you will have to use 1024X768 as the maximum resolution on your computer using the Element ELCHS322 TV as your monitor.

Since the screen only has a maximum resolution of 1024X768 while in PC mode, the screen must stretch and move from side to side when you adjust the resolution any higher than that.

If you set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768 your screen should look like it's supposed to.

Just throwing ths in because no one has mentioned it. Why not check what the screen mode is set to on the tv? Maybe it's set to stretch or something like that.
