    Hi there

    I have a Hitachi Tx10 which I mainly use to watch DVDs played from my computer. The PJ is native 16:9 which I though to be a good thing for watching widescreen movies, but...

    The resolution outputted from my computer is naturally 4:3 which means that the projector blacks out the horisontal edges. Fair enough. But when I play 16:9 movies, the movies are fitted inside this 4:3 resolution, so when I am watching movies using the projector there's a black stripe both vertically and horisontally! This seems like such a waste and significantly reduces the quality of the image (especially given that the resolution of the projector is 850x600). Is there any way I can avoid this problem?

    Grateful for any help!

    Lars

    The simple solution is to set the resolution on the PC to match the projector, if that resolution is not one of the standard resolutions then download a program called powerstrip, which allows you to create custom resolutions.
    A search on this forum and over at avs should give you more than enough info to complete this.
