I had previously asked both how to turn Resize off when driving my SXGA3 input on Computer 1 with HTPC perfect timings, and whether doing so would effect picture quality.
The one detail in my configuration that is different from many of you is that I am not running the latest NVIDIA drivers, nor am I running PowerStrip. I am simply using the bundled PowerStrip functionality that came with my Elsa Gladia GeForce GTS card last fall.
The impact of this might be that I am probably not using the perfect timings as "perfectly" as some of you. For example, my refresh rate is listed as 72HZ, not 71.xx HZ.
So, with that caveat out of the way, I forced the source to be VGA1 while the HTPC was on. This made my screen look like garbage, but allowed me to use the projector remote control to turn resize off.
The effect was that the very subtle vertical banding that I used to see in Disney splash screens (the whole screen is light blue with a white castle imposed upon it) is gone. There is a noticable difference in PQ in my configuration with Resize set to be off.
Now, maybe all of this is because I am too lazy to get the new drivers, download PowerStip, get the beta, and reconfigure everything, but it has made a difference in my configuration.
