I can watch TV in LMCE and rewind or fast forward in MythTV, but the image quality, although acceptable, is noticeably lower than what I get using the direct cable connection to my LCD TV. My capture card is a Hauppauge PVR-150 and my onboard video card is an Nvidia FX 5700. Image quality when playing ripped DVDs or navigating the GUI is perfect. How can I improve the image from MythTV so that I don't feel I had to give up something in order to use LMCE? I have been searching the mythtv setup screens but I can't find something that will improve the image.
Could it be TV image resolution set too low?
Could it be MPEG-2 compression set too high?
How are these things set?
I haven't changed any settings in Mythtv from the default LMCE installation aside from setting up the PVR-150 tuner1 connection to the cable supplier.
