HTPC Panasonic AE-900U; Dell Inspiron, resolution quesiton

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all

It's been an long time since I visited. I have been enjoying my Panasonic AE-900u for a couple of years now. I recently got a Dell Inspiron HTPC running Vista. I have an approximately 8'x12' Mississippi Mud Light Fusion screen (on plywood).

Problem-When I set the computer resolution to the native resolution of the projector (1280 x 720), the image quality is not that good (when using the projector image as my computer screen). Going to higher resolution results in cutting off part of my desktop.

Is this as good as it gets? I've tried overscan on and overscan off.

Any suggestions or direction to a thread on the topic would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tom

Are you running VGA cable or HDMI? If VGA ... needs better shielding and hope the cable run is not too long.

Thanks.

I am running DVI to DVI with a 6 foot cable. Looks like a low end cable (came with Oppo DVD player). Would a cable upgrade make a difference?

Just a thought, but you don't have scaling for overscan enabled on the graphics card, do you?
