    Hi All,

    I've not long purchased a HS10, and have instaqlled the requisite DVI cable along with the others. I have a PC that I could use for HCPC duties, a P4 3GHz, the 1GB of RAM and a GF6600GT gfx card. Player I have installed is PDVD5. I understand that it is possible to 1:1 pixel match over the full 1366x768 resolution at 56hz refresh, however, this will lead to stuttering on all region playback ( I have a mixture of PAL and NTSC discs) - can this be overcome (does reclock solve this issue). Another alternative would be to run the panel at 1:1 pixel mapping but at a slightly lower resolution of 1280x720, but with the required refresh rates - can this be done?

    Help on this would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    If its anything like my HS20.

    You can run 1:1 maximum panel at 1368x768 at 56Hz (any other refresh will produce a signal out of range warning). To be honest I don't find the pulldown judder particularly objectionable with the exception of NTSC video(not film which is fine) material (judder is so bad its unwatchable) which is comparatively a rare format to run through it anyway ( Elvis concert videos spring to mind)

    You can run at 1280x768 at 60Hz. which will give you a slightly smaller image but NTSC video runs fine at this refresh.

    Alternatively you can run all sorts of weird resolutions on it if you use a component output from your PC . Has the advantage of allowing full panel use but you are still stuck with 60Hz type refresh.
    You cannot feed 72Hz or 75Hz for example to an HS10 (or if you can it makes no difference as the panel only refreshes at 56Hz or 60Hz.

    In some part of the menu (can't remember which) change Computer to GBR and paste the following timings into powerstrip. These were the ones I found best but sometimes I got shimmering at the 50Hz res. Going into powerstrip and increasing the res up a point and back down to 50hz usually got rid of this

    1184x664 in 1280x720@50Hz GBR-RGB
    Projector Scaled Desktop near 0 under/over scan in GBR. Large assymetrical underscan in RGB. PAL film/video rate.
    1184x664=1184,181,40,259,664,34,4,48,62400,2310


    1184x664 in 1280x720@59.94Hz GBR-RGB
    Projector Scaled Desktop near 0 under/over scan in GBR. Large assymetrical underscan in RGB. NTSC video rate.
    1184x664=1184,181,40,259,664,34,4,48,74803,2310

    Hope this helps
