    Hi,

    I have tried for a few hours to get PowerStrip to output 1366x768 to my Panasonic 50PV500 plasma but it isn't having any of the 1366 resolution and keeps setting it back to 1360!!

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this? The nVidia driver has support for resolutions not divisible by 8 so this shouldn't be a problem.

    I am using a GeForce 7800GTX connected using analogue RGBHV (D-Sub).

    If anyone has the settings for a 50" 1366x768 Panasonic panel then that would be really useful :)

    If using the latest Forceware drivers, are you sure you still need Powerstrip?

    Yep, when I try to enter 1366 the Forceware app says that it is not a valid resolution even though their release notes state that you can now have resolutions not divisible by 8.

    Here is excerpt from the driver release notes:


    • Improved high-resolution scalable desktop functionality
    • Improved support for custom timings, including non-divisible by 8
    resolutions on TMDS/LVDS panels, control of back-end and front-end
    timings, and variable overscan shift values.
    The driver can also present underscan modes on demand, and supports
    variable underscan ratios.

    • Off-screen 2D Memory Management Optimization
    • Efficient synchronization between clients allows for sharing of off-screen
    resources with DirectX applications. This avoids potential performance
    issues with applications that use DirectX rendered surfaces in ways that
    conflicted with 2D caching.
    • VESA Coordinated Video Timing (CVT) Support
    • Support via control panel option for analog monitors
    • Support for CVT/CVT-RB timing restriction using R&T strings
    • Color compression support
    • SLI Enhancements
    • SLI screen capture support
    • Improved performance

    Setup your custom 1368x768 mode, and then go into Advanced Timing and reduce the Horizontal Active pixels to 1366 and OK it.

    It will appear to change back to either 1368 or possibly 1360, but it should still really be at 1366. If you display has an input mode display, then that might tell you exactly what is being input.
