    I think that I am going to be using xmbc or plex to play back my dvd and blu ray movies that I have transfered to my hd's. I know that there are going to be two different places where I have to set me resolution, in the computers display prefs and then in side of xmbc or plex. I have my computer hooked up to and external video processor, the dvdo Iscan VP50. The that goes into my front projector, the JVC RS1. I am wondering if there is anyway that you can have the res on the computer and xmbc automatically change when it detects a specific signal, ie. 480i, 720p, 1080p?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    The computer will scale whatever video to fill the screen. Any reason you need to change resolution?

    because I am using an external vp

    I need to feed my video processor the native res of the media I am trying to play back. The VP50 does a better job of video processing than the mac does, especially when it come to upconverting dvd's.
