    I know that people are quite happy using the 32LD7200 with their PC/HTPC, since it has 1:1 pixel mapping.

    What happens when you decide to run your PC at a lower resolution than the panel resolution. Does the set stop scaling and simply center the image with black borders around it?

    I was wondering if lowering the resolution is a decent solution to view medium to highly compressed content (like a 40 minute TV shows in <350MB). I guess many digital broadcasts fall into that category. I know the picture will be smaller, but that will avoid excessive scaling. After all typically these things are in 512 x 288 or even 352 x 240 resolution, and blowing them up to to 1366 x 768 may render them unwatchable. Has anyone tried this workaround?

    I'd be pretty dissapointed to find that the stuff I've been watching just fine on my 19" CRT all of a sudden becomes unwatchable on a big screen.

    Out of curiosity, how does the scaler in the 32LD7200 compare to a software solution like FFD show? Does one have the option of having the set do the scaling instead of the PC?
