I am attempting to connect a laptop with a LVDS1 resolution of 1366x768 to a HDMI1 resolution of 1920x1080 (hardware that HDMI1 is connected to is a 4k Samsung TV).
I am trying to clone my laptops LVDS1 display to the TV without the scale blurring.
xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto --scale-from 1366x768
The output does fill the entire TV with 1080p resolution but the text is a bit blurred and everything seems blown up in size.
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output HDMI1 --auto --right-of LVDS1
The output also fills the entire TV with 1080p resolution, but this time the text is perfectly clear and the UI and other aspects of the system is not fuzzy/blurry and seems to be proper in size (the UI is physically smaller and sharper on screen).
The problem with the second method is that it adds the TV as a new monitor on its own virtual desktop in i3. This means that if I am doing a presentation I have to make sure that I have that virtual desktop selected to manipulate it. EVEN WORSE is that I can't view the display on my laptops monitor so I have to do all the work blind.
Is there a way to clone the monitor as with the first command so that the TV replicates the vision I get on the laptop, but with the clarity and sharpness of the second command?
