    Is there a software solution to get the image from my LED projector to fit on the projection screen (i.e. re-sizing the image without physically moving the projector or screen)?
    The projector (Optoma Pico PK-301) has no useful internal image adjustment options. I am running the projector connected to a PC laptop (winXP), and the image spills out beyond the edges of the screen. I want to shrink the image down to fit the screen without moving the projector or screen, if possible.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried the "Zoom" ?
    On most machines it is a ring around the lens.

    Thats the problem, this projector has no zoom, either physically as a zoom ring or internally as a setting......
    My thinking is that because I am using the projector as a secondary or primary display, there must be some way to control the resolution / aspect ratio ... (more accurately than with the windows xp display preferences - this doesnt really do the trick)
    maybe there is some open source display management program that would work, or something else i can do in windows??
