    Hello :)
    I was wondering about be best possible way of converting standard 4:3 ratio games (1078x768, 1280 x 1024 etc) into widescreen analog progressive signals 720p & 1366 x 768 native resolution in particular.

    I am using currently a Sony 11HT projector linked to an ATI 9700 radeon card using ATI HDTV component adaptor. I am able to kind of get widescreen format but much cropping of screen occurs.
    I will probably upgrade components when HL2 is out, but currently I am unable to sort a good setup for Far Cry or Doom III. I have used powerstrip for DVD, but settings are lost switching video modes from within games.

    Would a scaler/upconverter like Zinwell BLS range do this trick
    Thks :smashin:

    You'r set-up is remarkably similar to mine, as is your problem. I'm new to all of this, and apologise beforehand if what I am about to say falls into the category of granny and eggs.
    I have the Radeon 9800pro feeding Sony 10HT via DVI out using the analogue RGB signal on that output. My game of choise at the minute is Far Cry - are we separated twins or what???

    After much pockling about and head scratching I finally managed to get an un-cropped 16:9 picture by setting both the graphics card output, and the resolution in the video section of the game set-up to 1760 x 1000.
