TVs with the video output is always blurry for PCs. It does not generate the same refresh rates and method of coloring.

are you using an s-video to the HD converter or are you using JUST the yellow composite?

just as a note look for newer drivers because the 9200 PRO you see is a generic windows driver i belive

If you're using the Yellow output, it's normal. You need HDMI to make it clear.

yellow, would svideo make it any clearer? because i dont want to spend $40 for a monster hdmi-dvi cable, unless theres a place that sells them for cheaper. also i get letterbox on the left and right side, will i get that with svideo or hdmidvi cables?

You should be able to get a DVI to HDMI adapter.
