Your monitor is 4:3 and a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024. Therefore you want to set your 360 resolution to 1280 x 1024 and you may want to change it to widescreen if desired. However, widescreen will cause you to lose some of your screen (i.e Letterbox). Try both standard and wide and see what looks better for you. If you are right up close to the monitor (about 12-18 inches away for instance), then widescreen would be ideal.

As for reference levels, it will depend on the contrast of your monitor. Try it on all three settings and see which one looks better for you. There is no wrong or right answer!

    720p is 1280 x 720, so 1280 x 1024 is a higher resolution. However, if you run Widescreen mode, you reduce the vertical resolution to 720 (black bars) making it the same thing!

Increase resolution


The poster resolution and the computer resolution are completely separate. The cpt resolution controls the monitor screen display. The poster resolution refers to the camera pixels used in recording the original picture - it cannot be increased. The poster program is measuring the resolution of the file picture only and indicating that t will produce a blurry poster.

Acer display drivers for mac-mini ?


hi, may I know how are you connecting the mac-mini to the display? if it is VGA, that is the highest resolution it can go. But if you're connecting it via HDMI or DVI-D, it can reach its highest resolution for the monitor. did have similar problem last time, but solved by using HDMI-DVI cable.

My laptop screen resolution is already set to 1200 *600 and windows 8 does not support in that screen resolution they want to 1200 *768 what can i do


  1. Open Screen Resolution by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping Search (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking Search), entering Display in the search box, tapping or clicking Settings, and then tapping or clicking Display.

  2. Tap or click Adjust resolution.

  3. Tap or click the Resolution list and find the resolution marked (Recommended). This is your monitor's native resolution-usually the highest resolution your monitor can support.

Screen Resolution in Control Panel shows the recommended resolution for your monitor.

Monitors can support resolutions that are lower than their native resolutions, but text won't look as sharp and the display might be small, centered on the screen, edged with black, or stretched.

I have a LG Flatron W2242p monitor. What should I set the screen resolution setting to?


1680 x 1050 is the highest resolution that this monitor can support.

Go through my published guide entitled How to set your Desktop Screen Resolution?

Set your Resolution to 1680 x 1050 as this will give you the sharpest image.

Thanks

I got the problem too, today...


Check the specs for your video card. Just because the monitor can handle that resolution does not mean that your graphics card can. If it cannot then you can either upgrade the graphics card to one that will support the resolution or you'll have to use the highest resolution that your video card can support. Hope this helps.
