1366 X 768, 16:9, and a dual screen setup.
I'm looking into buying an HDTV, and for my price range, x < ~500-600, I wanted to get a 32in set. At points I'm going to want to use the tv as a dual screen setup with my computer.
I've noticed that nearly all 32in 720p TV screens are in a resolution of 1366 X 768. I've done a little research and found that this is technically a 16:9 aspect ratio after the TV cheats a little bit.
My concern in buying a 1366 X 768 TV is when I set up my brother and his TV/computer setup that when the computer was the main screen, the TV would have a "scrolling" effect so you had to scroll to see the entire screen, only about an inch or so off.
I'm not sure if this is because his computer was a lame COSTCO build or whether his resolution, which was a true 16:9 had anything to do with it.
So if I hook up my laptop with a resolution of 1280 X 800 will it scroll with a TV running 1366 X 768?
