pc fonts suck on a tv display they always will. best bet is to run at 640 witch is nativ tv res so thers no overscan blurring things up. they still will be crap but they should be alot easer to read.

unfortanly tvs are not good at displaying fonts. the trick they do on tv brodcast is use bigger fonts. now a hd tv probly has no issue couse there high res like pcs. so your best bet is simply using a lower res display like 640 couse a tv can do a better job rendering it. other then that thers not mutch you can do.

you can play with the overscan settings but the shaper you make it the more flicker you get and trust me your eyes will relly be hurting then from all the flicker.
