Hi all, I have a ASUS M4A785-M mobo which uses the onboard ATI Radeon HD 4200 video
and it has an output of 1080p.

The TV I have goes upto 1080i

I believe the signal coming out of the PC is only at 720p,,, but how do I make the signal 1080i so that there is a better resolution on the TV screen?

Thank you.

ok, the standard resolution it already is, is 1360x768, the next one up is 1366x768... any above that do not cover the screen.

I figured for videos and such, 720p will work fine, but for desktop and websites there was a way to go 1080i and the windows would be nice and small so I could look at 3-4 windows at a time.

Is this not possible without a 1080p TV? Or is this a video card issue?

It is not possible with your particular TV because it's HDMI input only supports certain VESA standard inputs, and 1080p is not one of them. Your TV supports a 1080i input signal but downconverts it to the resolution of your screen, so text would be unreadable and everything would look fuzzy at 1080p on your screen.
