Here is a way to test this theory.

Use a Scanner to scan a ruler (or any object) to a certain resolution. Say 1920x1080. Then view that image (at that resolution and 100% zoom) and hold up the object to the image and see if it is the same size.

If the monitor is, in fact, just scaling the image down, then it the Image displayed will be a different size than the object.

I can't wait to try this.

Thanks for the help.
