    Hi gang.
    Right - I've got an hs10 coupled via dvi to my new htpc which is using a radeon 9700pro and an lg flatron 1510 monitor (res.1024x768@32bpp) I can see my desktop on both the hs10 and the lg but i want to expand the size of image on the pj using powerstrip to 1368x768. What's the exact procedure as i've tried inputting the settings given on other threads and i just lose the pic on the lg and have a blue screen on the hs10 which ends up in a restart in safe mode to reset to 1024x768.
    Does the hertz have to be 56 for both h & v refresh under powerstrip?
    An idiot's (I've never pretended to be anything else lol) walkthrough step by step will be much appreciated either by pm, email or via this thread - please help boys I'm nearly there and it's so frustrating & will I only be able to view through the pj at that res or will the monitor be showing one res. and the pj the 1368 res. - I don't think the monitor can cope with this as previously it says "input signal out of range".

    I dont think that the radeons can display different resolutions to different monitors at the same time, the work around is to use the ATI control panel Hotkeys which allow you to change resolution/primary/settings etc with a single button push. If you do a search against me a month or so ago I wrote a short tutorial on how to.

    I need to be at the HTPC to do a step by step for dscaler as I haven't done it from scartch all that many times myself. I'll attemp it later.;)

    okay, heres what you do to add the 1368*768 res to powerstrip

    goto ATI control panel and make sure that the "hide resolutions that this monitor cannot display" is unchecked

    open powerstrip
    display profiles /configure
    click the advanced timing options
    click custom resolutions
    then use these settings
    1368 active pixels 768
    hor vert
    45 refresh rate 56
    88 front porch 1
    144 sync width 3
    232 back porch 30

    pixel clock 82.280

    aspect any

    then add new resolution and reboot.

    go into powerstrip and select thr 1368*768 resolution

    That should sort it.;)

    Yeah thats the #51 setting

    The other thing you mentioned is to get into the service menu of the HS10 and you only need it if your correcting for a colour filter.
