I'm considering an X1. All sources (HTPC and Satellite) will be through the VGA input. I want to let the HTPC do the scaling for DVD's (powerstip+theatertek) but utilize the scaler on the X1 for SD DirectTV. I'd also like to bypass the scaler for HD from my DTC-100. Is this possible? If so, how would I accomplish this.

Bob,


It's great that someone as knowledgeable as you are here. I though only native mode is bypassing the scaler. Can you confirm?


One more question, I connected my laptop to the X1 using VGA and found the projected image in native mode is the same (biggest) like in 4:3 mode - unlike using S-video and composite signal that native is the smallest of the 3 (native, 4:3 & 16:9). Is it the design or any relation to my recent upgrade to 4.1. Now the image (when using laptop) in native mode is bigger than my 16:9 screen and no way to make it smaller. Will it be the same under 480P?


Hope to hear from you soon.

If you send 800x600 to the projector and leave it in 4:3 Aspect ratio, it will not be scaled.
What if I want to send it a 16x9 resolution . . say 1024x720?

I guess 800x450 and put it in 16:9 mode? Don't know if that would work.
