    Hello
    I have the option of two ways of getting component video from my pc to projector. One allows me to scale the video exactly to the lcd panels of the projector - 1366 x 768 pixels per panel - the other limits me to the standard 720p, 1080i scaling.
    I need to make this decision before purchasing cable, connectors etc, so any advice about which option to go for ???

    Thanks

    Harry

    The correctly scaled 1366x768 is best (presumably via VGA or DVI), this way the only scaling process is when the PC does it rather than the alternative where the PC scales up to 720p, and then the projector has to rescale this again to 1366x768 increasing the risk of artefacting
