Figure 15-10: In general, you should ensure that Media Center is using the highest resolution supported by your display.
On a high-end HDTV display, for example, you might see options such as 1920 x 1200, 1080p (59.95Hz), 1680 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1360 x 768, and so on. In general, you should choose the highest resolution your display supports in order to get the best picture quality.
Next, you can optionally configure your display's controls, including calibrating the display's onscreen centering and sizing, aspect ratio, brightness, contrast, and RGB color balance. These controls are less important on VGA, DVI, and HDMI connections, but analog connections like composite and S-Video often benefit from some fine-tuning. If you're using Media Center on a PC display, simply click Finish This Wizard. Otherwise, you might want to take the time to fine-tune the display.
