Maximizing screen resolution/settings for movies? I have had this since new

And am not sure I am getting the best resolution it is capable of producing. The max resolution shows 1024x768, but when I watch movies it shows 480p and 768x480. I am using an Oppo DVD 981 player and running it through an HDMI to DVI connection. When adjusting the resolution for the Oppo it will only allow me 480p as an option. Can I get better resolution?

Hi there

There is no way you could push it any further than 480p

If you would however like a better picture you can add a scaler like the DVDO Iscan VP30 to the mix and be blown out of your shoes with colour and smoothness of image.

Hi I have a Del laptop Latitude D620 with windows xp. I sometimes connect my projector (epson) and watch movies with no problems. suddenly I connected the projector and I get a message witch says source...


Try lowering the resolution of the laptop to 1024x768 from the display settings (start- > control panel -> screen / display)
Also if in the screen settings you see a grayed out display with a number 2 on it, right click and enable it, see if it helps, also lower its resolution to 1024x768, apply and then go to the advanced page, check the refresh rate make sure its 60.

Dell precision laptop, dell projector m2400 wont detect


Hello...the resolution on the laptop is too high...at least, from your description, that's what the problem sounds like. The projector is capable of 1024x768. Make sure the res on the laptop is set at or below that number. To set the res on the laptop, go into control panel and choose the display option...under settings menu, there will be a slider that you can move--when you move this, the computer will ask you if you want to keep this setting--choose yes. Also, make sure you power up the laptop first, then immediately after, power on the projector--this will help stop any syncing problems that might occur.--Hope I helped you!--Rick

No signal


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the "No Signal" error message indicates just that, it is not receiving anything or that the signal it receives is beyond its capacity. With this in mind, pls check:
  • the cable connection from PC to Projector;
  • that the PC is set to display on a 2nd monitor, TV or Projector depending on the capability of the PC's video card (Twin View or Dual View); or
  • as main monitor;
  • lower down the computer's Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh rate.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Screen adjustment


Adjust the screen area of the computer’s display settings to match the projector’s native resolution. Refer to your projector documentation for the optimum or native-resolution setting for your projector model. If you can't find this information or are uncertain, most projectors support a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels.
• With certain laptops, you might need to disable the laptop display to obtain the best image, especially when the native resolution of the laptop exceeds the native resolution of the projector.
• Font smoothing will automatically generate a cleaner font outline, both on your laptop and on the projector. To apply font smoothing, do the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Display.
2.
On the Appearance tab, click the Effects button.
3.
In the Effects dialog box, select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, and then select Standard or ClearType in the list.


If the projected image is dimmer than it was on the laptop, check your projector documentation for information regarding lamp timers. If the lamp life has expired, replace the lamp for maximum brightness.
If the projected image is not rectangular, try one or both of the following:
• Make sure that the projector is perpendicular to the viewing screen.
• Raise or lower the projector.
If the projected image displays vertical lines, "bleeding," or spots, try one or more of the following:
• Adjust the brightness of the image.
• Check the projector lens to see whether it needs cleaning.
• Adjust the sync and tracking on the projector.

Wobbly screen image


Are you connected to a PC (DIGITAL SIGNAL)or a video source?
If you are getting a jumpy screen from a digital source like a LATTOP/PC you many be feeding a signal that's not equal to the resolution of the projector itself.l There is circuitry in the projector to attempt to convert the resolution of the picture received into the screen resolution. It's an imperfect process, especially if you have a higher screen resolution going in than the 1024 x 768 native resolution of thie LX-1.
What you need to do is set the video output of the computer to that resolution.
The original LX-1 Infocus units had a less capable resolution resolving circuit than their later units.
In a portable, it's possible to setup two resolutions - one for the Laptops own screen resolution and another for the auxilliary (external) resolution of a secondary display or a projector attached there. Modern Laptops usually have a resolution of 1400 x 800 pixels or higher (mine are 1920x 1200), The LX1 can not handle that resolution well at all. If you set the external output to something slightly higher like 1200x800 it will handle it better, but you still will have problems, especially on the older units from Norway.

(I seem to remember some control over phasing in the LX-1 setup, too. but this might be more applicable to a video input rather than a digital one.)

Sharper Imaage


This is an SVGA projector with a max resolution of 800X600. Even though it can accept higher resolution signals, they are scaled down to 800X600 which causes degradation and artifacting of the displayed image. Obviously setting your computer's resolution to 800X600 will result in the best image the projector is capable of. Standard definition video (480i, 480p, S-Video or composite) signals should also display very well. High definition signals like 720p and 1080i get scaled down to 800X600 with the same issues as a higher resolution computer signal.

One thing that can have a dramatic impact on the quality of your display if you are using Windows XP or Vista is tuning your ClearType settings here:

Presentation mode is off...


I'm going to guess that you have a wide screen Dell laptop with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a default resolution of 1280X800. The wide screen is great BUT most presentation grade projectors do not have a native (pixel for pixel) 16:10 mode. Instead they still prefer a display input with a 4:3 aspect ratio like your old square CRT or standard definition TV. Why do they prefer a 4:3 input? Mainly because Powerpoint prefers to display a slideshow in a 4:3 mode. Because of this Dell, in their infinite wisdom, created the 'presentation mode' utility in an attempt to automatically convert the VGA output of your laptop from 16:10 to 4:3 on the fly. In my experience this is an annoyance at best and at worst can seriously impact the size and quality of the projected image.

The best thing you can do when you connect to a projector is ignore the presentation mode alert and manually set your laptop's resolution to 1024X768 for an XGA rated projector or 800X600 for an SVGA rated projector. This will cause your desktop to look stretched on your laptop but will give you by far the best projection image.
