| Dude, I did that aspect ratio and it still looks terrible at that size. My SD tv and HD tv are the same size but when I play DMC3 or FFXII, on the SD tv it looks great and crisp while on the HD tv its literally a blur of pixels and I can't see anything. Its just that HD is just that; high definition and most games aren't supposed to be run at that high def so its all pixelated. |
I think it's because the CRT televisions usually have higher refresh rates. Pixels on HD TVs sit until they're told to change, on CRT TVs the picture has to constantly be refreshed or it'll disappear which'd make for a crisper image.
"Sit until told to change" This is only true for LCD televisions, Plasmas redraw the pixel each time the picture refreshes just like CRT televisions.
I think the main problem with blur for SD games on HD televisions is because CRT's refresh rate matched the input. Whereas Plasma and LCD have fixed refresh rates, so if the input does not meet that, they have to add in extra frames which causes blurriness. Combine this with generally larger picture and a couple other minor issues and you get that horrid blur.
So it's not due to HD, it's due to the panel.
