    tv-out question ati card.

    hey guys

    basically i have recently got my hands on a hdtv which im happy about and naturally is connected to my computer

    my pc screen runs at 1024x768 @85hz but my tv is also outputting at 1024x768 i was wondering how i can get my card to output to my tv at 720p but while keepin my monitor at 1024x768

    Theres an option in the ati tool tray thing to autodetect max resolution of the second screen, and then when you play a video it will automatically scale it to the 2nd screen, but not he 1st.
    So I use it to show stuff on the plasma at full screen (movies) and at the same time I can use the monitor for emails and stuff.

    ah, it seems that if i extend my desktop onto my tv then i can use multiple resolutions i was cloning.

    would rather clone with different resolutions if thats possible??

    Re: tv-out question ati card.

    so have your monitor at 1024x768 and the plasma at 720p while displaying the same thing on both?

    Re: tv-out question ati card.

    thats what i want to do, but it wont let me, it only lets me have different settings for each screen if one screen is used as a desktop extension, not a clone. as i have already explained

    You clone it with main screen, and then use the setting in video to apply maximum resolution when viewing videos to the second monitor.
    I dont know how to do it with general use, just watching videos

    don't think it's possible to clone at different resolutions.
