I found my HDMI cable. The TV is a 48 inch model. It just so happens that its preferred resolution is the same as my 11 inch laptop screen at 1920x1080. The fonts on my laptop are very crisp and clear. On the TV, not so much when viewed close up. Better when viewed from a distance but still not as good as a monitor. However, I think I may have found your problem. Looking at the specs for your TV/monitor we find that the screen size is 23.5" with a pixel density of 66ppi at the native resolution. In searching for articles on using TV as monitor they recommend a display with no less than 80dpi. I could not find the specs on my TV's display. It is about 3 years old. Now compare that with my Asus monitors. They are 25" displays with a pixel density of 117ppi at their native resolution of 2560x1440 (I think PPD, pixel per degree, may be a better measure but that seems harder t come by or calculate) Everything is sharp and clear on my Asus monitors. I think you have HW which is never going to be satisfactory as a monitor. Probably others with better understanding of display technology have their opinion. -- A motto of mine is: When in doubt, try it out
