A LG representative said that LG 26LX1R and 26LX1R
(http://gb.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp) can be used as a monitor from DVI
computer output without the overscan?
Is this true?
The Panasonic "specialist " has absolutely no idea what he talking about..
Of course Overscan involve scaling since it "zooms in" or upscales the video
it receives which is of course why small text fonts in PC applications are
fussy since every 20 line or 20 pixel in a row is "invented" by 5% percent
upscaling which is very common.

Thanks JW for your helpful reply!
The d-sub is used by my computer monitor already. The DVI is left free. I
would like to use it to display mpeg 4 movies from my computer on the TV.
Does overscan includes scaling, which reduces small text readability?
A Panasonic specialist said that HDTV 1080i resolution is the same as
1366*768, and that I can output 1366*768 resolution from DVI compurer
to HDTV (1080i capable) TV input, and the scaling will not happen. Is
There is no technical reason that a PC cannot be used with an HDMI/DVI
interface since the HDTV has no idea where the video is coming from,
are however two problem first the number of resolutions receivable by an
HDTV over HDMI/DVI is limited and secondly almost all HDTVs overscan
HDMI/DVI input since they assume it is TV video.
You can either get a unit which also has a VGA interface since they do
overscan the VGA input since they assume it is from a PC. You will not
suffer any degradation in resolution using VGA and you may not even
possible slight degradation in video color quality.
I know of not flat panel from the vendors you listed that provide a way
to overscan their HDMI/DVI inputs. AFAIK then Westinghouse family of HD
monitors are the only flat panels that give you control of overscanning.

What Panasonic, Toshiba, Samsung, Sharp or any other 26" flat pannel TV
could be used as a monitor with a DVI output of a computer with the
same resolution as the native resolution of the TV matrix? Should the
computer resolution be the same as the native resolution of the TV
matrix for a small text being shown clear?
All 26" flat pannel TV manuals with I read indicate that TV's DVI or
HDMI input cannot be used with a computer and a computer video
resolution could not be the same as the native resolution of the TV
matrix, therefore a scaling is required. The scaling makes small text
