Yesterday when I connected my Dell Inspiron 1525 to my LCD TV Dynex DX-32L150A11 (native resolution 1366x768) by VGA, going to "Display Settings" in Windows Vista allowed me a wide range to adjust the 2nd monitor's resolution from 800x600 up to more than 1920x1080.
Nothing has changed but now the highest resolution I can select for the 2nd monitor (extended to the left) is only 1360x768. What's going on?
Is there anyway I can get the exact 1366x768?
If I play a 1080p (1920x1080) video with VLC-player and display it on the 2nd monitor, what is the resolution exported to the 2nd monitor before it gets scaled to fit the 2nd monitor's native resolution (1366x768)? Is it 1920x1080 (of the video) or 1360x768 (of the graphic card)?
How do the video file, graphic card, and the 2nd monitor work together to produce the resolution of the final image? They're all different, 1920x1080, 1360x768, and 1366x768.
How does resolution scaling work, for example, to scale a 1280x720 image to fit a 1366x768 when the ratios 1366/1280 and 768/720 are not integers? And vice versa? We can't have something like 1.5 or 1.7 pixels.
