and show HD media files via a media PC? Will I get a widescreen resolution from the PC etc.?
Yes I think you will. But if you want more help then you might want to provide a litttle information about what you are trying to achieve and how.
As with most things 'media pc', you might if everything works. You will need a reasonable level of pc literacy to get everything looking ok, and of course unless we have your screen and pc hardware, we can't give a definitive answer.
Looking at the panasonic 37" px60 and before I buy wanted to make sure i could connect a media PC to it which I have not brought yet...
The nvidia drivers will allow you to select 1024 x 720 as a custom resolution, so providing the panel accepts that via a VGA/DVI/HDMI input you should get 1:1 pixel mapping OK and no reason why it shouldn't produce very good results.
1024 x 720 is an unusual resolution that I don't see in my ATI list of extended resolutions. Also it nearly 4:3 so you'll probably end up with the rectangular pixels problem in Windows, ie. the PC's pixels are square and the Plasma has rectangular pixels.
Anyone got any experience with the 37" PV500 ?
