    Man - how do you get this working with MCE 2005?

    No matter what I do, the desktop text looks blurry - as if it is

    Sharp Aquos 32 inch with resolution of 1366X768 (Nvidia control panel
    reports this as not a valid custom resolution - so I am stuck wityh
    1360X768 - likely my blurriness issue)

    Anyone have a way to make this display look awesome?

    Check your Sharp manual to be sure of what resolutions it will accept over
    and make sure that your desktop is set to the same resolution that you are
    sending to the Sharp.
    Your bluriness is not caused by the addition of 6 pixels in every row or the
    addition of 1 pixel after every 223 pixels and its content being determined
    by the adjacent pixels.
    In fact you migh be much better off sending 720p since HDMI/DVI receiver
    chips are designed to convert the ATSC resolutions the best to their native
    It is possible that the image is overscanned (zoomed in about 5%) in order
    to emulate a CRT TV. If this is the case you would have to use overscan
    compensation in the driver to insure that your entire PC Desktop shows up.
    I assume that you can not use a VGA or Component interface from your PC to
    your would have tried them and compared the DVI interface PQ to them.

  3. The problem is that most display adapters seems to be incapable of
    outputting a horizontal resolution which is not a multiple of 8. I haven't
    managed to get 1366x768 out of an NVIDIA 6600GT either. Maybe this thread
    is helpful to you:

    I run to a Fujitsu 50" plasma native 1366x768, over DVI at 1360x768. There
    is no stratching; 6 columns of pixels are simply not used.

    Did you ever notice that some plasma makers specify that the DVI or HDMI
    connector is "not for PC use" (or words to that effect)? I wonder if one of
    the things that implies it that they assume the picture is coming from a
    set-top box, and therefore overscan it in the display. That would really
    suck if you can't turn it off.
