    You'll probably find that the 7" widescreen displays are actually 800x480 pixels. So, you're still losing 48 pixels in the width.

    The better question is "What video cards support 800x480 res??"

    I personally am using 800x600 on my 7" Xenarc, and it looks pretty darn good

    I am interested as well in this kind of info and before the thread becomes too fuzzy, I want to repost the question: What VGA cards do support 848x480 on VGA output?
    or let me ask different way:

    What OS/card/driver version are U using to get 848x480 on VGA?

    since I am currently using Linux, and I can see there are new WindowsXP drivers out there for Epia-M (which is my M/B) onboard VGA - CLE266_XP2K_16943209, I would like to know if someone has tried this resolution on VGA output and sucseeded.

    Thank you.

    I have 848x480 listed, but have never tried it.

    nVidia GeForce4 ti4600 (53.03 driver) and XPpro.

    I don't have 800x480 listed (I don't think). That is the Zenarc and Lilli's native resolution.

    I just created a custom resolution of 800x480x256colors@60Hz. I didn't try better colors or higher frequency, but they should work also.

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

    Geforce 2 (basic) on PII400, Win 98, latest drivers. runs 848x480 fine. (Using Powerstrip)

    I created a 800x480 resolution, but the lilliput seems to think it is 640x480 and it looks rubbish. Can't seem to get that to work at all. Irritating.

    sweet ill have to look for a s/h geforce4 card and download those drivers, id rather 848x480 res because its the closest to the ratio of the lilliput screens 16:9, than 800x480.

    No....the actual number of pixels on the screens is 800x480.

    i know... but still the ratio is distored if i use that res, 16:9 goes into 848x480 nearly perfect at 53 times which is closer than 800x480. so i'd rather use that
