If I run my PC outputting 1024x512 (ALiS native res), is the picture true 16:9?
1024*576 would be true 16:9 (assuming square pixels). 1024*512 would, effectively be 16:8.
So the real question then - are ALiS pixels square?
No they are not, nor are there 512 vertically, there are 512 drivers, 1024 pixels. They are distinctly rectangular. It is impossible to address alis pixels natively, I've even had a go today. It's not going to happen. XGA works well, and if you don't mind some overscan, 5-7%, then 1080i is good. You will lose the taskbar though.
so the big question is..! is alis tech is a good one when compering to other tech...?
Trust MAW to confuse it all
Oh and as I've said before, 1080i looks utterly gash through my PC - I even tried large fonts and it still looks gash
1024x768 looks nice, but it won't work through the DVI port if the TV is set to DVI-STB
Oh and I have a feeling that the aspect looks wrong too.
