    Hi

    I have pc that I have just got round to connecting to the projector (sim2 300e) via a vga lead.

    The pc has an ati radeon express 300se graphics card and it is also hooked up to the tv via s video. I have not hooked up the DVI as yet as I do not have a lead long enough at the moment.

    My question is regarding the settings for the graphics card. I went the 'advanced' setting for the display in the menu and set the output for 1280 x 720 and 'applied' the changes. However, when i play a my WMV HD version of Fighter Piliot the projector shows a resolution of 960 x720 via the vga lead. Should this be the case?

    Another anomoly is the sound, it does not come thru as 5.1 from the disc however normal dvd's play fine in 5.1 via the coaxial output.

    Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Regards

    Mahmood
