    I’m using a Samsung KU6290 4K TV and have noticed I get screen tearing using line5x at 1080p. If I change to 1600×1200 or 1920×1200 the tearing goes away. My question is, which resolution is the most ‘correct’? On my TV, 1600×1200 completely fills the screen on all sides as if it’s displaying an actual 16×9 source (odd I know). On 1920×1200 I get pillarboxes on the left and right sides. What are the pros and cons between these two resolutions? Honestly either of these is fine but I’d prefer the one which most closely matches my 240p source from an integer scaling standpoint. Thanks

    Are you sure you can’t change aspect ratio? Most TVs should let you do this.

    As with all things there’s no correct answer as it entirely depends on what your TVs scaler does with it next but

    320 x 5 = 1600
    240 x 5 = 1200

    So if it was a 1600×1200 panel that would give some very sharp results.

    Thanks Matt. Let me play around with my TV settings re: 1600×1200
