Hi all, not sure if I should post this in this forum or in the HTPC forum, but I think here is more likely....

I have a HTPC connected to a NEC XG-1100. When I look into the tubes the "raster area" or what I am refering to as the area of the phosphor upon which the total scanned video input (including the non-image parts of the image but still within the area being output from the HTPC videocard) can be seen, is not filled edge to edge with actual video from the video card. Should I be using powerstrip to size the actual video image to fill the full raster area being output by the HTPC's video card?

Just to clarifiy... I know I'm not suppposed to fill the entire phosphor area of the tube, but with regards to the video raster being sent by the video card in the HTPC, should I maximize the video image area WITHIN the total output of the video signal? Is either way safer for the PJ, better use of the PJ's capabilities?

I know I''m not stating this very well, but any help is appreciated...

I don't know for certain, but I think that this is set in the projector, not the input signal. You want to spread the beam out to fill up as much of the panel as is "appropriate" which is to say as much as you deem you want to fill. I didn't know of not wanting to fill the entire panel, unless there is a reason I haven't heard of (very likely).
