Am going to buy a projector, and I'll just be using my laptop as the image source for it. My laptop is new but only has a 14 inch screen and its maximum resolution is 1366 X 768.
I want to use hdmi to plug the laptop into the projector so that I use the projector instead of laptop display for watching movies etc. But will my laptop be able to output an image that is 1080p? Or would the image be truncated somehow.
It's an acer windows 7 laptop with a HD6550M graphics card... the projector:
HDTV Compatibility: 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p Video Compatibility: NTSC, PAL, SECAM Computer in (D-sub 15pin) x1 Composite Video in (RCA) x1 S-Video in (Mini DIN 4pin) x1 Component Video in (RCA) x1 Audio In (Mini Jack) x1 Audio L/R In (RCA) x2 Audio Out (Mini Jack) x1 Speaker 10W x1 HDMI V1.3 x2 USB (Type Mini B) x1 (USB Download & Page up/down) RS232 (DB-9pin) x1
I know windows 7 has alot of projector options, like extend desktop, duplicate, computer only and projector only. Instead of a 1366 X 768 pixel desktop on the wall, I should see a 1920 x 1080 pixel desktop, i.e full HD. I just want the full 2 million or so pixels, not some blurry or truncated result. Is this possible?
Hope i made sense. Thanks for any input.
