Would like to know the native resolution of a Panasonic TH-P42X20Z
If indeed it has such a thing.
Nearest I can find in the manual is an aspect ratio of 16:9
Nothing leaps out at me on google.

Is this the one? (http://shop.jbhifi.co.nz/plasma-lcd-tvs/plasma-tv/panasonic-th-p42x20z-42-hd-plasma-tv/1210) If it is the native res is 1024x768.

Yes that's the one.
I initially used that resolution.
Looked ok but fairly big.
Anything higher had furry text.
Can't try anything atm, swmbo is watching tv.

OK have set res at 1280x720 & it's quite usable.
I notice in the nvidia control panel, it recognises the tv & states the native res to be 1920x1080.
Have tryed that but then have to get up close to read text.

It might just downscale the image at higher resolution or something...

Either way, TVs just don't seem to make good displays for reading small fonts on.

1280x720 it is then :)

Is a native resolution anything to do with the Waitangi Tribunal?

Hopefully not, because then it would be really low res to match the really low intelligence of.... some types of people :devil:
