    Hi All,

    Just a quick question, what CRT do you have and what resolution do you run it at?

    Cheers

    You forgot to ask what size screen, makes a big difference.

    70" wide 16:9
    NECXG750 8"


    ntsc 720p 60
    pal 768p 50 (however I actually think that 720p 50 looks a bit better on my screen size, a little sharper, just set up a resolution with it tonight and it may stay there)

    can be arsed to play around with refresh rates myself, too lazy :)

    Why does screen size make a difference?
    The resoloution on the CRT tube face will be the same whatever size you use.

    I presume when somone asks about resolution they are trying to get rid of visable scan lines, and you know what I have never really sat down and thought resolution as such, but thinking about it now of course screen size shouldn't make a difference.


    However, if you had very small scan lines surley as you moved the projector back and increased the size the gaps would become slightly larger, as of course would the image lines. Obviously if the PJ was set absolutly spot on with all lines touching this would not be the case.

    Or am I missing somthing ?? :blush:

    Everything should remain in proportion. If you can't see the scan lines on a 6ft screen then they shouldn't be visible on a 8ft.
