    I have seen this post in another forum in the effort to find out the best resolution to watch 1080i movies and 720p via DVI on my plasma what do you think bout anyone tried that already ?

    Here 2400+/9500 pro/Winxp/powerstrip 3.50 build 451


    16:9 Letterbox Desktop with VESA Timing
    Haven't seen much on "resolution in a resolution" but that's precisely what I needed.

    It seems that my HD monitor assumes that inputs with DTV timings must be Component Video regardless of input connections or display settings. So forget trying to send RGB computer video packaged in DTV timings.

    I have found that creating a 1024x576 letterboxed desktop within 1024x768 VESA timings is ideal for driving my 1024x1024 (16:9) plasma. Letterbox Zoom expands the Postage Stamp image to perfectly fill the screen.

    I created a new resolution using 1024x768 as a base, added 96 each to VFP and VBP, subtracted 192 from Vrez, and corrected the Hsync and frame rate. Sounds easy but it hurt my brain figuring it out.

    PowerStrip timing parameters:
    1024x576=1024,40,136,144,576,99,6,125,64968,2054

    Generic timing details for 1024x576:
    HFP=40 HSW=136 HBP=144 kHz=48 VFP=99 VSW=6 VBP=125 Hz=60

    Linux modeline parameters:
    "1024x576" 64.968 1024 1064 1200 1344 576 675 681 806 -hsync -vsync

    Hi,

    I have just got the Hitachi 42pd5200 and have tried this resolution. I had to make a few changes but achieved a great picture.

    PowerStrip setting:

    1024x576=1024,24,136,160,576,182,6,42,64968,15366

    I then went into the menu of the plasma and chose Function; Default Zoom and changed it to 14:9 Zoom.

    I then chose zoom 1 by pressing the zoom button on the remote and the picture is pretty perfect.

    The best thing about the picture is there is no judder which I've had on all other resolutions I've tried.

    Kev
