    Not sure what you mean by 'too big'. I set my PC (Radeon 9800 Pro) desktop to 1280x720, at 60Hz, and the picture is exactly right for the pj - no scrolling the desktop or anything like that. I get the signal into the Z3 via a DVI-HDMI cable, going into the HDMI port on the pj. I don't use the 'force 720p' or anything like that. The setting I use for inputs is 'Auto', otherwise I just set it to HDMI.

    How is your pj connected to the PC?

    These options refer to the shape not the size of the image. If you want a smaller image and the zoom is at it's min, your only options are to move the pj closer to the wall with the screen or move the wall with the screen closer to the projector (the latter probably not being an option ;) ).

    It sounds to me that you may have bought a pj that does not suit your room. If you bought it from a retailer that will allow a return within seven days you may want to consider this.
