    True 800x480 is not exactly 16:9. But an LCD will always look best in it's native resolution, IMO.

    Think about it. How do you faithfully display 848 dots, by only using 800 pixels?

    I have GeForce2 MX PCI on my M10000 I have run it on 848x480 and that's the mest picture, I set 800x480 but it looks crappy!! even if it is a native Lillys resolution (I have Lilly), so I think the best res is 848x480

    Still waiting of VIA's driver update, when they will have 848x480 support of their onboard card

    That seems odd to me. But I don't own a Lilli or Xenarc, so I can't argue with you.

    It does seem to be the case. Maybe the lilliput is cheap cos it doesn't have square pixels :/

    848x480 works great anyway, for the web it leaves a nice 24 pixel gap either side, which makes it easy to read. OK so my circles aren't perfectly round, but then I don't do my CAD on it

    The main problem with 848x480 is that some dialog boxes are too big, making it tricky to hit the enter key.

    Thats why we need perfect CarPS software

    But the fact is I have tried both 848x480 and 800x480 on GF4 desktop over the weekend and truly 848x480 is far more better. Still I am forced to use EpiaM onboard VGA so 800x600 for the time beeing. Holy VIA, do release good drivers supporting 848x480 already!!!

    I have emailed VIA tech support directly regarding 848x480 support in their CLE266 drivers, lets see what we get. I have also started little thread on viaarena forum (CLE266 customs resolutions) so if you want to support me and want your 16:9 resolution as well sigh in and make some noiz so we have some arguments to support us.

    How do you create a 'custom' resolution? I have a GeForce 2 and want to run 848x 480 on my lilliput. Its not listed in the list all modes. Thanks.

    All nVidia GeForce cards use the same driver, so I'm thinking that you can set 848x480 or 800x480 on any GeForce card.

    This is for the 53.03 drivers.

    Right-click on desktop and select Properties

    On the Settings Tab, click Advanced

    When you click the GeForce Tab, you should see a "Tree View" of options on the left. Select Change Resolutions.

    Click Add Custom Resolution
