Display bending might be due to the voltage dropping due to the subs hitting? If that's the cause you can use a capacitor to fix that (use this as a last resort though), adding thicker wire will probably help a lot too.Originally Posted by Sonicxtacy02
S-Video will help with clarity because the luminance and chrominance aren't munged together in the signal. I don't think composite and s-video have a line limit afaik.. there's some sort of bandwidth limit though... i think with svideo it's roughly equivalent to 1080i scanlines?
Switch to allow soft shutdown / hibernation? you can set your atx power button to hibernate on push in power options in control panels, that might be sufficient?
