Please change you e-mail address to something less offensive, should you

Is seems you are not only visually impaired,
you are culturally impaired, too.

37" may be too much monitor for distances typically used with a computer.
It depends on your own needs. It could be good to deal with vision issues.

As for the 1080p part of this, be sure you know for sure what the NATIVE
resolution is. Some 1366x768 HDTVs reach up to the 37" and 42" sizes.
The native 1920x1080 ones cost more. Then make sure you have the computer
configured to exactly match the monitor. If you install with that monitor
in place, it should do this fine. In many cases it will even if you just
switch monitors. But if not, you'll need to force the setting. It is more
likely to just work right if you use a DVI or HDMI output from video card
than if you connect up with the old VGA analog to an analog input (which
will also require pixel lineup which not all monitors do well automatically
and even fewer HDTVs succeed at for computer use).

I have a smaller HDTV in the 19" size that I sometimes use on computers when
I'm building them new and don't want to pull my real monitor from the computer
desk out to the table where I'm building. This HDTV is convenient for this,
but it has one bit of an issue. When I boot up many OSes, the switch from a
text video mode at boot, to a graphical video mode, triggers the automatic
pixel lineup. But the software is only displaying some small activity area
in the middle of the screen and for a while the background is otherwise black.
This fools the TV when it tries to figure out where the active visual area of
the analog signal is, and it gets it wrong because all it saw was some small
stuff in the middle initially. Later more is displayed and it goes off the
edge. I have to make the TV reset the pixel lineup again later to get it done
right (flipping to a TV channel then back to VGA again does it).

PS should get the images right unless you try to make the images exactly fit
the full screen and they aren't really 16:9 images. Just let PS put the image
in a window to work with. This along with correct matching video setup and the
aspect ratio should remain correct. If you then want to use one of your fine
works of art as a computer background image, be sure to crop it to a 16:9 (not
a 16:10 as most widescreen computer monitors use) size, preferrrably an exact
1920x1080. Then also make versions for 16:10, 4:3, and even 5:4 if you want
to share that picture for others to use as screen backgrounds.

It's not an issue of whether he has your real one or not. It _is_ an issue
of him (and many others) not wanting to see those words on a computer display
that for many is a computer multiple members of the family use or watch.
This is NOT an adult oriented newsgroup that would otherwise be restricted
as to who can access it. This is about a topic that should be open to even
young children. It sounds to me like the OP plans to add a block to prevent
your messages from ever showing up. And I concur with his plans. I suspect
quite a number of others will eventually do so. Your personal readership
will decline. So I suggest you make some adjustment to the name and fake
email address you have chosen. Fake ones are still OK. It's the offensive
ones that are an issue.

I think it's funny anyone asking someone with a handle of ****YOU to do
anything. Here's a clue, **** YOU!
Get it? He could give two ****s, and good for him. As usual, David I'm A
Little Boy has a stick up his ass. If only he had half the courage.

You have now shown just what kind of contribution you can make.

Most likely he was beaten regularly by his alcoholic/drugged parents when a
small child. Thus, the choice of his/her 'handle'. A reflection of his/her
attitude on life in general. I still think that maybe a grandkid was playing
on his/her computer? How could ignorance be so blissful, indeed.
