I want to use a TV as a Monitor which is from SANSUI. I have connected the TV with HDMI but the problem is it gets blurred text, it's not smooth at all. I have many resolutions with ALT on scaled but no smoothness. It was the same on windows also. However, when connect with VGA it was clear and smooth as a normal monitor. The resolution it shows:


Thanks For Your Help.

    What specific model of TV do you have? Do you know what resolutions it has is it a 720p monitor or a 1080p monitor?

Under the ‘Display’ tab, hold down the OPTION / ALT key while you press on the ‘Scaled’ button alongside Resolution to reveal all available screen resolution options for the display

Try using this to see the actual resolution in numbers. Once you know what actual resolution is being used in HDMI you can better assess why the image isn't sharp.
