Not sure if this is best posted on the HTPC forum, but I'll give it a shot here.


I'm trying to "tell" my HTPC that it has a D-ILA projector connected to it. When I set the Monitor to JVC D-ILA, it won't let me set the resolution above 640x480. I tried a couple other monitors, and they will "take", but I want to set the resolution to 1360x1024. I'm going to look for ideas in the famous "Pixel Perfect Timings" thread tomorrow, but if anyone knows what might be causing this, I'd very much appreciate your input.


Thanks!

Hi Dave,


When you say "set the monitor to JVC D-ILA", do you mean with PowerStrip?

I am guessing you are setting the monitor type in System Properties -> Device Mangler (oops Manager http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif ) -> Display...


If so try selecting standard monitor and setting the resolution up that way....


You may also use PowerStrip for the use of 16:9 resolution settings (I guess you knew this) and PowerStrip also has a way of making Monitor.INF files but I have never used it...

Hi, Guys. Thanks for the replies.


Mark: I was setting it pretty much as Phreddy said - through "Display Properties" - "Settings" - "Advanced" - "Monitor".


Phreddy - I think I tried that and it didn't let me change to D-ILA resolution, but I'll try again.


The strange thing is that it will let me attempt to set higher resolutions - it seems to "know" the resolutions that the "JVC D-ILA" monitor supports, but when I pick one and hit "apply", the screen blanks for a second (which is normal), and then it reverts back to 640x480. When I try another monitor type, this doesn't happen. BTW, it happens if I try to change resolution either through Display Properties, or through Powerstrip.
