    Hi there,

    Just a quick question. What resolution should I run a PC through my Pioneer at. I use it solely for watching video files (it is essentially an HTCP).

    So the majority of the content is 16:9.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    If you use HDMI to connect it to the plasma you can get resolution upto 1920x1080, but 720p is often better since your screen doesn't need to scale the picture as much.

    Pioneer uses overscan on all its inputs, except the vga, so you have to set your resolution to 1216x684 with powerstrip or if you have nvidia drivers you can compensate with those.
