    OK, so I though i'd make this list about common pc/tv resolutions, so you have an easy time when setting up/understanding your display...accurate as possbile, but will be updated if corrections need to be made...

    320*240 = QVGA (4:3) PDA
    640*480 = VGA (4:3) PC CRT Monitor
    720*480 =??? CRT/LCD TV
    720*576 = ??? CRT/LCD TV
    800*600 = SVGA (4:3) PC CRT Monitor
    848*480 = ??? (16:9) DLP Projector
    1024*768 = XGA (4:3) PC CRT/LCD Monitor
    1280*720 = WXGA (16:9) LCD TV
    1280*768 = ???? Plasma/LCD TV
    1280*1024 = SXGA (4:3) PC CRT/LCD Monitor
    1366*768 = ???? (16:9) LCD TV
    1440*900 = ?????? (16:10) PC LCD/CRT Monitor
    1600*900 =WSXGA (16:9)
    1600*1200 = UXGA (4:3) PC CRT/LCD Monitor
    1680*1050 = WSXGA+ (16:10) PC LCD Monitor
    1920*1080 = ????? (16:9) Plasma/LCD TV
    1920*1200 = WUXGA (16:10) PC CRT/LCD Monitor
    2048*1536 = QXGA (4:3) PC CRT Monitor
    3200*2400 = QUXGA (4:3)
    3840*2400 = WQUXGA (16:10) PC LCD Monitor

    360x240 and 360x288 (and the 352x288 variant) are VCD resolutions for 60Hz and 50Hz respectively

    480x480 and 480x576 are the SVCD resolutions for 60Hz and 50Hz respectively

    720x576, 704x576, 702x576, 544x576 and 352x576 are all 50Hz broadcast TV or DVD recording resolutions.

    hmm..forgot about the PAL and NTSC Standard Mpeg 1 resolutions, but I was thinking more about display resolutions than actual video resolutions..., anyway what is the actual resolution of a standard 4 by 3 CRT TV is it not 720 * 576 in the UK?...and is that a 4:3 or 16:9 res?, it's confusing I heard that it is also a 3:2 Res as that's what they use on DV
