What a cool tool! Thank you! From what I can see, having the screen resolution set at 1920 x 1200 with aspect ratio set at 16:9 seems to display the best widescreen view. Don't you agree? Sweet!

1920x1200 is a 16:10 aspect resolution. The 16:9 version is 1920x1080. Set it to 16:10 or you may get image stretching/geometry distortion.
