    I'm trying to hook a Sony 10HT 1366X768 projector upto my laptop which has an crappy intel 82855 GM card. The external monitor output only seems to provide resolutions for 4 X 3 monitors i.e. 1024 X 768.

    Does anyone know how I can get it to drive the full 1366 X 768 or somewhere closer i.e. 1280 X 768 ?

    The build in screen appears to work OK with 1280 X 768.

    Cheers

    Ýou're out of luck................ the 10HT won't accept a 1:1 pixel match......

    Check this out

    .........from a FAQ here...


    You could google a bit more yourself, you might discover whether there's been a firmware upgrade, but I don't think there has.....

    dependant on whether the graphics chipset will accept it you can use the followig resolutions to fool the 10ht into thinking it isnt a PC signal and then it will use the full panel. But - as previously pointed out it isnt 1:1 pixel mapping. Text therefore is a bit blurry. Films look fanatastic though.

    Using Powerstrip you can set up these resolutions:

    1184x666
    1280x720
    1920x1080

    Fantastic source of knowledge devoted to 10HT is here:

    Thanks for the info, but powerstrip would mean I need to upgrade my graphics card, and it was only for a quick look at some wmv 720p stuff.

    Don't really want to start spending loads of time and money setting up a HTPC.

    Again thanks for the useful info.
