    Please excuse my ignorance, I've been away from the forums for some time.

    I'm trying to set up my Sony HS10 projector to display a good 16:9 image from my PC (XFX GeForce 6600GT via DVI) but I have read some older threads that state that PC games cannot be displayed at full 16:9?. Is this true?.

    The primary output from the Grafix card displays 16:9 on my plasma fine.

    Cheers,

    Turl

    It all depends on if the game supports a 16:9 resolution or not - games like Half Life 2 and the majority of more recent games work a treat!

    for the ultimate in widescreen pc gaming go here

    http://www.tigerdave.com/wgl/

    shows you how to put alot of games that dont officially support widescreen into 16:9 re but will also change the FOV (field of view) to properly look widescreen instead of just stretching 4:3 out. hope it helps

    The most important game for me is Pro Evo Soccer 4 in widescreen (for the projector), fortunately it works fine :)
