    just built a SN95G5 shuttle pc using AMD 939 64 bit chip, and with Asus 128MB Geforce FX5200X graphic card.connect via a DVI cable
    running windows media pc

    i am unable to get 1 to 1 bit mapping with the projector (1368 x 768)
    even if i replace the card with a ATI 8500 and run windows XP with a different hard drive

    i know the ATI video card is ok as my old HTPC worked ok and delivered the required resolution via a pentium 3 PC

    Any one any idea where i am going wrong please?

    Are you running @ 56Hz as that's the only way the HS10 will run at (nearly.....long story, try a search) native resolution.

    Tell me about it! It took me a couple of months to achieve it with a 9800Pro on my HS20.

    Anyway, back on topic.

    I've just changed from the 9800Pro to an nVidia 6800 and I'm asking myself WHY!

    The only thing I have managed to do is to get 1280x720 @ 60hz. Even using powerstrip I got nowhere after wasting even more hours on the lamp.

    Use the latest drivers and select the HDTV Resolutions. The 1280x720 appears as a smaller picture on my screen so it may well be 1:1 pixel mapping, albeit at the smaller res. You may have to selct VBR mode first and then swap back to DVI.

    PowerStrip timing parameters:
    1368x768=1368,56,56,304,768,1,11,23,80285,7

    Generic timing details for 1368x768:
    HFP=56 HSW=56 HBP=304 kHz=45 VFP=1 VSW=11 VBP=23 Hz=56

    Linux modeline parameters:
    "1368x768" 80.285 1368 1424 1480 1784 768 769 780 803 -hsync -vsync

    Use this to an HS20 with a radeon 9800pro , never had a problem , worked first time. I use 1280x768 at 60Hz for 60i and 30p material.

    Make sure you uncheck the hide resolutions this monitor will not display in the graphics settings . Its also a good idea to use the driver for the sony w900 in the monitor tab. ( windows comes with it just select it from the list) The W900 takes about every resolution under the sun so you won't get any restrictions on the display settings.

    If you have a dual display setup its sometimes easier to setup powerstrip with only a "well-behaved" display attached as powerstrip might read some duff edid data from the display that limits the way the 1368 res can be constructed.
