Is this correct. If I purchase a NEC 42MP4 that has a native resolution of 1024x768 and I wish to connect my HTPC to the plasma monitor. I want to get the settings so that windows is displayed in wide screen without distortion of icons, pics, etc and at the same time have TV programs in 16:9 aspect filling up the whole screen. Now I have done a few calcs on the signals that the NEC can handle and the only input signal that maintains the 16:9 ratio similar to the native resolution is 1360x765.


I have a PCI dvb-t card and does this mean that 720p (1280x720) would have to be scaled up to 1360x765 by my HTPC then sent to the NEC where it would be then converted to the pixel ratio of 1024x768?


The NEC allows for progressive video so does that mean that a 720p signal is going to look better than a 1080i signal or will the 1080i signal be re-sampled in the process and displayed as a 1024x768 progressive signal making for negligible difference between 720p and 1080i (720p up-sampled and 1080i down-sampled but 720p is approx native res of screen) on this monitor depending on the scaling circuitry.
