I don't have your setup, but there's a good SwitchResX tutorial on avsforum.com in the Mac HTPC forum. I haven't fine tuned things, but between SwitchResX and a little in-TV tweaking my plasma TV works fine.

I'd like to see Mini owners post their settings and TV models. I think this would be a great data base for people like myself that will go through this process as we upgrade to larger flat screens.

It would appear that there are quite a few people out there trying to get their screens right. A sticky with peoples settings would be most usefull.

It has been a while, so I don't remember the exact steps, but IIRC I followed the part where you create a custom configuration and enter the desired pixels x pixels value. In my case, the native resolution is 1024x768 (i.e. rectangular pixels), but the logical value to use for 16:9 (square pixels) is 1366x768, so that's what I used and it worked fine. I had to nudge it slightly with TV settings, but I think if I redid it I could probably use the various "arrow" buttons in SwitchResX to do it there. I keep intending to try that, but it's good enough as it is.

[b]HUH??? Shocked [/b] You seriously lost me there. Maybe this is why I can't get SwitchResX to work on my Toshi 62MX196. If your resolution is 1024x768, why wouldn't you want that to be the settings you use for SRX? I thought that the resolution you use or create is the native resolution of the tv.

And whats this about rectangular pixels and square pixels? I never gave it much thought, but I would have thought that all pixels are a standard size, shape or whatever. Guess I have more learning to do. I did go through that tutorial on AVS and thought I understood enough to make it work. But I tried several times and nothing worked, so I eventually gave up.

The problem is that TVs often have non-square pixels. If you do the match, 1024x768 is a 4:3 resolution (assuming square pixels), but my screen is 16:9, not 4:3. Doing some more math, 768 pixels vertical would correspond to about 1366 horizontal for a 16:9 display, and in fact you'll see many 16:9 screens with 1024x768 AND many with 1366x768. Those with square pixels will be 1366x768 or similar; those with rectangular pixels will often be 1024x768.

Trust me, it works!

In my experience, i could do whatever i wanted with the resolutions in switch res and couldnt get the right results. This was because i was using a DVI to HDMI cable. The TV wasnt recognizing it as a PC source.

Luckily, my TV has a DVI input, so i used a DVI cable. The best looking resolution that i could find was a 720p resolution. Using the native resolution just didnt work well. I also had to set that TV to be accepting that resolution too (there were only like 3 or 4 options.

Now, everything works prefectly. Also make sure the refresh rate is correct (probably needs to by 60 Hz).
