Hi RCA F38310 owners,

My 1270Q projector just died and I am considering this popular 38" widescreen as a replacement. I was getting excellent scaled DVD playback on the pj at 960x540 72Hz and I want at least that good on a direct view unit. I know that the 4x3 RCAs with their SVGA inputs can only do 800x600 60HZ. So, who has the widescreen F38310 working from a Radeon based HTPC through a transcoder to its component inputs? What transcoder are you using? What resolutions and refresh rates can you run? How does it deal with anamorphic DVDs? How about film sourced vs. video sourced? I've done several searches on this unit, but, nobody has gotten specific on these questions. Please only those who have done it or tried it respond.

thanks in advance,
Mark H

Joe,
Thanks for the reminder of this great thread. I would still like to hear from those who have done it with the F38310 and a Radeon card. If it doesn't work very well because of the trancoder or for other reasons, I'd like to know before buying. My other purchase option would be to go for another multisync unit like a good used NEC XG110.

Mark H,

The best I could get out to of the PS38000, which is identical to the F38310 was 848x480 in 960x540 timing (to eliminate overscan).

The information on the timing can be found in Wayne Harrelson's PowerStrip guide in the HTPC forum.
