Grainy/not sharp video quality

Post#1 » Mon Mar 23, 2015 4:33 pm

I very recently bought a new computer/monitor. I downloaded the latest VLC media player, version 2.20 Weatherwax(adore the Pratchett references). My video card drivers are updated.

I've tried watching videos via VLC, Windows Media Player, youtube, and Netflix. All videos are grainy/not sharp. I've tried fiddling with VLC to no avail. Searching online through google and the VLC forums has produced no solutions for me. Help?

My current computer's info
OS:Windows 8.1
Intel Core i5-4690K CPU 3.5 ghz 3.5 ghz
nVidia GeForce GTX 980
Monitor is Acer 17 inch with Nvidia G-sync/3d vision

My resolution is 1920 x 1080

Not sure what to adjust via the nvidia control panel.

I have tried windows media player. Same problem. This is also affecting youtube and netflix videos, not just media software players.

Turn down the sharpness on the monitor. Is the connection HDMI?

I've been checking them and adjusting various ones via the nvidia control panel. Nothing. Spent over an hour in a chat window with a tech from nvidia. No result. I guess the only thing left is to try a new dp cable. If not, i'm fucked.

Is it DVI to DVI? Or HDMI to DVI?
