    Hello

    Has anyone managed to get a true 1:1 image on the Nec VR5?

    I've been playing with Powerstrip for hours with no success.

    Thanks,

    Leo.

    Have you tried the ones listed in the manual:
    848x480, 60Hz vertical, 31kHz horizontal with RGB select on wide 2
    and
    852x480, 60Hz vertical, 31.7kHz horizontal with RGB select on wide 1

    Note sync polarity on these is different so if one doesn't work perhaps the other will. Also can you graphics card output these?

    Yes I did try the settings in the manual. graphics card is Radeon 9800 Pro and the image displays fine on the LCD.

    I did find out today that I had the ATI scaler enabled, which kind of makes Powerstrip's settings irrelevant.

    After disabling the scaler in the Catalyst control panel, and choosing 848x480 in Powerstrip with discrete timing, the image looks better, but still not 1:1 (some text distortion and desktop is being cut a little on the left side).

    Trying to reach the correct timings for the Nec, result in a blank screen or system crash.

    I think you're trailblazing here so good luck - we'll all be interested to see how you get on.

    SUCCESS!

    Thanks to the very professional help of Rik from the Powerstrip team, I can now get a perfect 1:1 image on the VR5.
    It seems I didn't know I had to setup multiple monitors in the Windows display settings... Once I got that, it took 5 minutes to setup a perfect 848x480 signal to the plasma.
    I recommend everyone who's going through this frustration to read my discussion here with Rik:

    I'm still having trouble getting a 1:1 pixel mapping for my VR5 anychance you could explain in depth what settings are required and EXACTLY how you did it? Its really doing my fruit in :-( (I have a Radeon 9250 Gfx card so settings should carry across)

    TIA
