Default When a projector is connected to a computer is it still NTSC?

Or does it turn off the internal deinterlacer and then act like a computer monitor? Wondering if it's still internally convert everything to NTSC (29.97)?

I know only the newest projectors support true "unmessed with" 24fps progressive output. But that's when dealing with normal set top DVD players.

In HTPC-land I was wondering if things are different since we output from computers. And the video card, at least most, can output a wide range of signals. And does the projector receive the signal and not molest it.

Guess I can test that. Set my vidcard to some stupid setting and see if the project not only syncs, but then see what it displays under status.
