Note: The closer your VGA out signal matches the HDTV format, the better your signal will look. The ideal resolution is 1024 x 768. It is closest to 720p and will generally look best on that HDTV resolution. For a table of resolution compatibilities, click here.

Pros: On-screen display is helpful to position the output on the TV.

Cons: The only supported resolutions are: 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024 These all work well if you have a 4:3 TV, but if you have a real HDTV that is 16:9 you will have your video stretched horizontally. That means circles turn into ovals and people look fat.

Question:

Will this work on all TV's with Component video input or will you need to make adjustments on the PC or Labtop


Answer:

You will need to ensure that the laptop video out port is outputting a compatible resolution and refresh rate, but it should work with any TV that has component inputs.
