Any Pio users who has tweaked their Pio for maximum viewing pleasures using Powerstrip?


I was hoping to push it to more than 86 Hz(current refresh rate). The desktop view looks slightly 'wide' .. i guess it's due to the widescreen.


Anyone..?

It looks wide because the pixels are rectangular, not square. Unfortunately there's nothing to do about it if you want to run at native rate. The reason is that the screen is 16:9, but the pixel mapping is 4:3.


It gives the effect:


Square (normal) pixel:

____

| |

|___|


Rectangular (wide) pixel:

______

| |

|_____|


Thus everything will look stretched if the display runs 1024x768.

You can try running the display at either 1360x768 sqeezing the image, or 1024x576 and making it fill the entire screen by vertically stretching it (perhaps putting zoom on works as well).

I think the 1024x576 might actually look best, since the display doesn't "remove" pixels from the original image when trying to show it on screen.

Either setting should be able to give you the look as if square pixels was used (proper aspect ratio).
