    Hi there,

    I know a lot of the 26" lcd tv / monitors currently handle 1280x768 resolution via component and other hd connections, however having checked the specs for a few, they only seem to handle normal 4:3 pc resolutions (i.e. 1024x768) when connecting a pc via vga cable.

    My question is, does anyone have a 26" screen that they use with a pc, and can you get it running in native 1280x768 mode without any issue? If so, what make/model are you using?

    Cheers for any info

    I don't have it, but Samsung's LE26R41B will take 1360x768 without any scaling for 1:1 mapping. It'll also take 1024x768 for 1:1 mapping in a 4:3 ratio. (panel is 1366x768 native, but PCs can only output in multiples of 8 so there's a 3px gap either side)

    So most lcd tv's will only take a 4:3 signal from a pc? disappointing :(

    Very odd as well, checking my graphics card, it can do pretty much all of the widescreen and other ratios, including 1280x768.

    I can't speak for every make but I think you are wrong when you say that.

    My Asda/Dual/Hitachi 26" does 1080i by vga.I'm using an ATI 9200SE card with CCC and I just select the two Home Theatre modes (it also does 720p) albeit at 60Hz.

    Tartan_guru has had success with 1080i and 720p at 50hz but that was via DVI.

    ok thats cool, i was hoping i was wrong :)

    so you manage to get yours running in 1280x768 via a vga connection without any issue?

    All i want is for the full native resolution of the screen to be used really when connecting via a pc, which i would have thought they would be ok with. I might just take the plunge and give it a go.
