Ok this is really confusing me. I understand how basic RPTV resolutions work, but i am not sure i understand how they work if the RPTV is used for PC output. I think 480p resolution is used for 640x480? Alright, so what about 720p? I think that games that have the custom res feature can run 960x720, but what about those that don't? Would i be stuck running them at 640x480, or could i somehow run 800x600 - after all, 600 is below 720. Also, isn't the Xbox capable of outputting resolutions above 960x720? How exactly does it do that, and is there any way to use it's technology to do the same on a PC - after all, Xbox is a PC itself, even though Microsoft doesn't want to admit it. :)

If your set supports resolutions up to 720p (i.e. multiscan) then it will do 800x600. Most RPTVs support 480p and 540p. You can search around the forum for more info on what sets support what and how to set up custom resolutions.

Don't know anything about X-Box yet, since it is not out.
