I have a 26" HD monitor and a 42" HDTV hooked to my pc. It is 4 years old. All of my favorite tv and movies are stored on it so much so that, I rarely watch "regular" tv since all of my favorites are stored on my pc. Needless to say, my pc and monitors get used quite often.

Recently I am noticing pixelation on my 42" HDTV (not the 26" monitor). Every 5 or 6 minutes a few seconds of pixelation appears and it only lasts a few seconds. I was wondering.....historically, what does this USUALLY represent???

If your TV doesn't do this with other content, then it's probably just your video player unable to smoothly transition from an I-Frame to a P-Frame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_comp ... ture_types )

Yeah, since the vid card is responsible for all video it is the obvious choice but I wanted to check with the members here just in case it could be something else.

Thanks Lat!!!

Well technically the processor is responsible for all video, it has to process the file and decode it to a form the video card can render. Oh and that takes memory too. I have yet to find a PC that plays video files without either of those components. Oh wait it also has to pull that video from some form of storage.

What I am getting at is any "weak link" in your PC could cause this issue not just the video card. Try using admin tools to check your processor and memory load. Also check your drives throughput. If that checks out then yes it's a video card issue.
