Hmmm... I've been in the market for a new monitor that will switch between 4:3 and HD modes. I see it has a VGA port as well. Does the menu system have a way to force 4:3 aspect ratio? Reason I ask is my Acer LCD I have currently will auto switch between the different aspect ratios in Windows, but in MS-DOS it defaults to stretch and there is no way to adjust it which completely sucks.
Edit: I see it says in the manual "4:3 is only available when input source is in 4:3 format. OverScan is only available for the HDMI input source.". So how does that translate with MS-DOS via the VGA port?
It doesn't force 4:3. As you noted, it needs to have a 4:3 signal.
I haven't tried it in DOS or with a VGA cable yet. From what I've read, it won't do 4:3 in modes like 320x200 since that is technically not a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Makes sense. I'll keep looking. Nice looking monitor though.
