Quick questions to the home theater PC experts:

Assume a 16:9 plasma TV with a resolution that is not 16:9 natively, e.g. 1024x768. Thus the pixels are not square. The plasma has a VGA and / or DVI input.

Am I right to say that displaying the e.g. Windows desktop will result in distortion, i.e. circles become oval?

If yes, is there any way to display the image without distortion, maybe with some special graphic cards or drivers?

Thanks! :)
 
I could be wrong, but by not providing a 1:1 input but a video resolution instead. I.e. 1280x720 and let the PDP perform the scaling for the resolution to which it has been optimised.

But I guess you are looking for a 1:1 solution aren't you ;-)
