Sounds right to me.  Find out what the pixel resolution of your
projector is, it probably is different than your LCD screen.  And since
the technology between them is comparable, you can expect them to each
badly handle video signal resolutions that don't match their display
resolutions in a similar fashion (grotesquely smeared displays that make
an Apple ][ look high resolution, in comparison).
