    explain to me something MuFU, how is it that some 100Hz TVs can do 1024*786 and other cant.
    Can you see this spec somewhere?

    Basically what type of screen do you have to look for to get XGA?

    I now have 29" Samsung Plano 100Hz and it can do XGA, then quite old non-flat Sharp 100Hz which again can do XGA.

    However some ppl have 100HZ screens on almost brand new models (usually Thompson screens) and can only get 640x480 even when checked with the TV-out capable of XGA.
    Nothing that I can see in, admitedly rather scarse, specs of the TV they bought will tell me why this is so

    I have no idea to be honest, the info just seems to spread via word of mouth. Our TV doesn't accept it but it apparently will allow 960*540 via RGB SCART. Unfortunately the graphics card in the HTPC is just a Radeon 7000 which doesn't support composite sync.

    720x576 is nice because it's the native PAL DVD res, of course. I use Zoom Player to correct the aspect ratio and Powerstrip to switch between 848x480 (for desktop use) and 720x576 on the fly. It won't accept a 60Hz signal, which is a bit of a pain as NTSC material judders a little.

    It's not really 100Hz either, it's just double-scanned 50Hz. Still.... the difference in picture stability from a 50Hz TV is marked.

    This discussion is getting a bit relevent. Maybe I'd better move it to General.

    Sanyo HT30744 16:9 built-in ATSC & NTSC tuners. Greatest HDTV deal in America. Look for the 32744, larger but 4:3

    i just had to choose between a panasonic 32" and a JVC 32", normally i would go with panasonic but after seeing the two side by side the picture on the jvc was in a class above. These werent flat-faced though, the panasonic flat tube did look very good as well, but spending another $200 just for a flat glass doesnt work for me.

    My next is a projector- ~2000 lumens, 1024x768/hdtv, DLP something along those lines
