I am (sadly) moving from Colorado Springs to DC for a new job. The sad part is that I won't have space in the new rental for my home theater. I built a custom 2.35:1 screen using black-out fabric...

It doesn't seem to be that easy. For example, if I put out 1360x768, the 7205 still goes into "720p" mode, which ends up cutting off the lower portion of the screen. It seems the 7205 is trying to...

I know the native mode of the 7205 is 1280x720. And I know it will sync with a computer resolution of 1024x768. But what I'm learning is that most games do not have widescreen formats of just 720...

Thanks for the link. That's certainly a possibility if I verify that DVI is enabled on this box. Do you have any HDCP issues with the MOXI connecting with your 7210? My guess is that the 7205 would...

Yeah, which is probably why most HD channels show movies that are clipped to the 16:9 format. Maybe HD-DVD (or Blu-ray, whatever) will start to change this. After all, movies are 2.35:1 more than...
