i just bought the following tv 2nd hand from a pawn shop for $40

dynex dx-26l100a13

it works great as a tv and i mistook it for a 32inch because of the big bezzels on it. but somehow windows lets me run it at up to 1080p but for all the icons to be on the screen and not off i have to run it at 1280x720 or 1360x768 or 1792x980 or whatever that one is

everything looks great except for final fantasy xi .......... when i am zoomed in on my charector it looks great the way it should but when i zoom out everything looks a little grainy and i cant stand that i want it to look as good as it did on my 23 inch 1680x1050 pc screen but on a bigger screen


how can i achieve this ? my pc specs are core i5 6600k 3.9ghz and 16gigs DDR 4 memory and 256GB SSD and 2TB HD and gtx 1060 6gig videocard so ya its not my specs being unable to handle the game

check if you can set the input to be pc to remove overscan

is you background resolutions/foregrounds resolution set correctly for the tv's resolution ?

theres tvs on amazon for 60-100 bucks that can run in 1080 res np it might just be worth getting one of those instead. I got rid of a little tv a few years ago because it never scaled correctly with my pc or even with my playstation.. it would cut off the sides. Then if you tried to adjust the horizontal vertical scaling in the playstation or tv the image never filled the screen properly, it was a 720p too. Invested in a 4k tv for pc and a curved screen for the ps4(not a ps4pro)

The TV you got is native 720p (well, 1366x768 per usual there). It's not uncommon for a TV to accept 1080p and scale it though, which is likely why you see it offer that resolution. You'll want to keep it at native.

As mentioned, you'll want to turn off overscan to avoid the picture going off screen. This looks to be something you can toggle (page 22 of your manual), though the VGA input should have it off by default.

Some of the other picture quality issues may simply be a matter of adjusting settings. For instance, you may try turning down Sharpness as that tends to introduce haloing, especially on text.

i ended up putting that tv in the guest bedroom and getting an actual 32inch HDTV like i wanted but sceptre makes both a 720p model and a 1080p model and i am not sure which one i have cause windows list 1366x768 for native but it also accepts 1080p eithe way its a nicer tv than the the 26inch one i had before and this one only costed $26 more after i returned the sanyo 26inch hdtv i bought mistakenly ....see the whole story is i though the dynex was 32inch but it was really a 26inch with big bezels so my plan was to put the dynex in my room and get the 26inch for the guest room

but the dynex i had bought 2 or 3 weeks ago so i couldnt return it but the 26 inch sanyo was only 1day old when i measured it and realized what size it was and i paid $40 for it and retunrd it and i paid the $26 difference for the 32 inch sceptre hdtv......and the manager was completely understanding of the situation cause side by side an older model 26inch hdtv with big bezels is nearly the exact ame size as this 2016 32inch hdtv with very small bezels .......older hdtvs wasted space on bezels newer models dont and u get more screen size

its one of these and as u can see they look identical in the photos but mine has 3 hdmi on it and not 2 so from the description it sounds like i have the 1080p model but if that is the case why is the 1080p not perfect on the screen
