Stretching image to fill PC CRT monitor
« on: May 22, 2018, 05:33:37 pm »
New to using the Pi, wondering if anybody can help me with this problem.

I have a 17" PC CRT monitor that has a native resolution of 1280 X 1024.  So whenever I set the resolution to something smaller than 1280 X 1024, the Pi doesn't expand the image to fill the screen. 

I'm also using a Craftmech miniSLG to get nice scanlines.  However, it only implements the scanlines at 640 X 480 and 1024 X 768.

BTW I'm also using GERT666 VGA to connect to the PC CRT monitor.

Anybody know how I can set the image to 1024 X 768 but fill the entire screen?
