Widescreen monitors and whiteboards
Every class we have has a SMART board in it. Most monitors are 17" CRT, running at 1024x768. As we replace these, we are buying LCD's of course, but now it seems that getting sqaure LCD's is next to impossible. As such, our supplier is giving us wide screen monitors.
As you can imagine, the mix doesn't play to well, as the projector can't handle the resolution, dual view doesn't work with SMART Notebook very well, and extending the desktop isn't any better.
The best I can do is scale the monitor so that it looks decent, but the wasted black space on the sides seems a waste to me.
Does anyone know how we can have a cloned display with different resolutions or some other trick to make it work?
The machines are all running XP SP3, most are Nvidia cards, some are ATI cards. The projectors can only do 1024x768 at best. We have splitters in all the classes, but would rather use both outputs on the video card. The splitters we have don't do DVI connections either.
