Another question, since someone was soooo helpful with the last one.

I have my MCE2005 with ATI 1600Pro running via DVI -> Hdmi into my pioneer 42" plasma (435).

The desktop is compensated for overscan via the ATi control panel to a resolution of 1216*684.  This fits the desktop in perfectly. 

When a play a 1080i/p movie it fits on the screen.  Where is that conversion to 720 (or 768 which is the pioneers resoliution or 684 which is the resolution my card is out putting) happening?  In the Ati drivers?  In the Zoomplayer ?

On your display card is where it usually happens, the player creates an overlay space of the media files resolution on the card, and places it in the window at whatever size it needs, some really old cards barfed if given an overlay greater then the screen res, but everything from about the geforce 4 era seems quite ok with it.
