Hi!


I just bought a Syncmaster 913N/915N 19" LCD monitor which has a native resolution of 1280x1024. I am wondering if I can use it to display 720p signals (1280x720) comming from a videogame (VGA output) or do play PC games in widescreen mode (1280x720) without the monitor to scratch the image (interpolate it) to the whole screen. Like using black bars at the top and botton of the screen (letterboxed) but keeping the native resolution on (without interpolation or scratching).


Is it possible? Specially on VGA inputs, since this model does not have DVI. I have heard that per-pixel resolution (if the feed's at 1280x720, it'll only use 1280x720 pixels of the screen) is only possible on DVI and any signal from a VGA-in will be made to fit all the pixels on the LCD. Is that true? (if so I am s*** since I bought the wrong monitor)


I would like to hook the Xbox360 and PS3 on my LCD monitor since I do not have a HDTV set. Both consoles will output 720p but only Component and VGA (no DVI). I know monitors with TV-tuners accept Component signals, so they must not be scratched. I was hoping that there was an analog mode with VGA output letterboxed.
