    I am using an HTPC with my TLP-S30U. I am utilizing the VGA input which gives me a 4:3 ratio. I am contemplating in using its component video in which will give me a 16:9 ratio.

    Will I give up some resolution if I do this?

    Right now my resolution is up to 1600 X 1200 or something up there.

    Juno, I'm not familiar with the TLP-S30U, but I'm also using an HTPC.

    I'm using the HTPC with a CRT FP. I just set the HTPC to a 16:9 resolution (like 1280x720).

    I think you can use the HTPC with a 16:9 resolution if you want to.

    Does it become narrow as in having a 16:9 aspect ratio, or is it too narrow, not narrow enough?

    I looked up the projector on projector central here:

    Apart from all this, you might want to drop the resolution out of the HTPC down to 800x600, which is the native resolution of the projector.

    I think the 16:9 resolution you might want to run may be 800x450 if you've got powerstrip.

    Hopefully someone more familiar with the nuances of the digitals can chime in and help (as I'm not sure my advice is right or not. This is not my forte!)
