I really don't think that's true. You think my display supports a 1842x1036 input? Or 1840x1036? Or 1840x1034? Using the desktop resize controls in the video drivers, I can come up with any number of odd resolutions. The TV can only accept a handful of standard resolutions. All you're doing when you adjust this setting is changing the resolution Windows uses internally for the desktop, while the output remains at a standard resolution. Similar to the way some drivers will allow you to set a desktop size larger than the resolution being sent to the display, and panning as the mouse gets to the edge. But in reverse.

Most of the ones I'm aware of do. I don't have a Samsung DLP, bit IIRC, it's a function of some user settings (I think they call it "just scan", or something like that - like I said, I don't have one). With Mitsubishi, you have to go into the service menu and disable geometry correction. Of course, in either case, 1:1 pixel mapping is automatic in 3D mode, as it's necessary in the checkerboard format (and another reason why you want to make sure you aren't messing it up in the PC).
Highly unlikely that you ever had (true) 1:1 mapping in the past.
I have it now
as long as I leave my desktop resolution at standard 1920x1080. I'm simply trying to see if there's a way to get video output to use the full 1920x1080 when the desktop is set to something smaller. I can do it in Media Center (tell it to use 1920x1080 despite the desktop being set at something smaller), but TMT reverts back to the deskop settings.

Like I said, getting true 1:1 pixel mapping is not an issue. It's easily comfirmable with test video. The issue is simply getting TMT or PDVD to use a resolution other than what Windows reports as the desktop resolution. That is simple with games, as many of them have their own independent resolution settings when not in windowed mode. I just can't find a comparable setting for TMT, unless there's a registry setting for it.
Darin... seriously 5k worth of posts dude!?!
Plenty of people have a lot more. I'm not sure what you're getting at.
The setting is in your display device NOT the video adapter settings!
I don't follow... my question has nothing to do with my display device, and I'm not talking about any settings in the display. I'm simply trying to see if there's a way to get video output from TMT or PDVD to use full 1920x1080 when in fullscreen mode even if the desktop is set to something less.
I don't see why everyone is trying to make this out as something more complicated than it is.
