    Post Redant screen - widescreen, screen res, TV out???

    Well the redant screen looks great but how are people hooking it up to there mobos? Are they just using a TV card and hooking up the NTSC signal - if so how does that effect cropping of a regular proportioned desktop image.

    I really like the look of this screen and it may be a perfect solution for my project but I want to run windows XP to play games, watch DVD's and play MP3's so how does the screen handle res options, stretching cropping etc etc - do you have to use special display drivers????

    Thanks for being no help at all.

    I posted here cause there seem to be tumble weeds blowing through the other forums

    I have a Clarion flip out screen (6.5" wide screen) and it displays Windows just fine. The stretching is automatic and barely noticeable. When I run PowerDVD I just uncheck keep aspect ratio and it fills the screen and looks perfect.

    Just for the record, I posted the same question days ago in the LCD forum and it never got answered.

    cjones: What are you using to provide the signal?
