    Howdy...

    I have the LG 44" DLP, and I love it, however I have one issue...

    The box says that the DLP's native resolution is 1280 x 720. That's great, but the only resolutions it will let me use with my computer through the VGA input is 1280 x 1024 or 800 x 600. This is a bummer for 2 reasons:

    1) The aspect ratio is wrong, as those are both 4:3 settings, not 16:9, and

    2) Any time you scale a VGA signal, it looks worse than native...

    Anyone have any idea how I can set my unit to accept native resolution from my computer. It has no trouble setting itself to 1280 x 720, but the screen just goes black no matter what 'refresh' rate I use, etc...

    Thanks to anyone who has any ideas..

    Best regards,

    Ben

    Guess you didn't read you instruction manual :D

    Seriously, you can definately hook up your laptop/HTPC to this monitor, through either the VGA or DVI inputs...

    Unfortunately, that doesn't help me with my issues. Any other thoughts out there? :lease:

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Hmmm. I have the RU-44SZ63D. I guess that's a different unit, so maybe you can't use yours for VGA input... Sorry :-(
