    Hi folks.

    After a bit of fiddling, I managed to get the computer to display on my SIM2 projector. It's connected via a DVi to HDMI connector from my Geforce 6800 card (soon to be replaced!)

    The output is set to the native resolution of the SIM2, i.e. 1920x1080 (set for pixel-to-pixel), but for some reason it's displaying as though it's a stretched 4x3 picture, not a proper widescreen picture.

    The monitor's a 4x3 LCD & the picture looks fine, but not widescreen. Surely it shouldn't though?

    I've tried playing a couple of DVDs & they're the same- not an anamorphic picture.

    I'm puzzled by this, and any help would be much appreciated!

    Any ideas on this please?

    I should add that I'm buying a new graphics card - probably an HD 2600XT.

    Perhaps that's the problem?

    I'm puzzled!:confused:
