question, laptop output resolution
i havent had time to really search this over on avs forums so i figure i would ask here hoping someone might know.
i have a dell laptop with an intel centrino 2.0 ghz, ati radeon mobility 9000 series (128mb shared memory bullshit). im using this to connect to my tv or projector depending on which room in watching tv on.
well here is my dilema. the bedroom samsung lcd is a 46" 1080p tv. i can output 1920 x 1080 @ 60 hz from my laptop and it looks great like and lcd should. (note: the laptop recognizes the display as samsung lcd, i did have to hit auto adjust in the tv's menu for it to clear up the text the first time only).
now the living room, i have a mitsubishi 720p projector with native resolution of 1280 x 720. i did not have this resolution as an option to output when i connect it to my projector. i had 1280 x 768 (not quite 16x9) which looked messed up and the size was off a bit. so the next resolution i tried was 1024 x 768(4:3) which looked perfect BUT it was 4:3 so it was not cool with me.
so i wound up installing omega drivers. i then had the option to output 1280x720 like my projector wants but the screen text looks a bit fuzzy. kinda like i need to hit "auto adjust" on the projector but that option is non-existant.
is it possible my laptop just wont output this resolution correctly despite it having no problems outputing 1920x1080?
i dont get it! i may bring my work laptop home and try if it will work better.
