So how badly did you want those fuzzy looking analog meters on a 7610?

OK so I should add a few words about how I made this work.  Out of the box connecting a HDMI cable to a widescreen monitor will give you a flex screen in the middle of the remote display with black bars on either side.  Once you hook up the wide screen you need to go into advanced display properties on the 6400M.  This will launch the Intel video driver program.  In there you can have it select your display and you can also pick the formatting of it.  It won't change right away to the wide screen until you save the configuration and exit the program through the 6400M.  Have fun creating Flex envy with your ICOM friends!

Save compute power for something else other than pretty meters.

I seriously doubt a graphic representation of an analog meter would be any greater of a resource
Resource or preformance drain on any recent pc.
If it is, it's time to get rid of the TRS-80!
Options and customization are always good.

I know I wish they offered that because I hate to see this beautiful screen experience burn in especially when you want to leave it on when you travel to do the cool remote control stuff.  Flex insists burn in isn't possible with their screen and I want to believe them but this would be a pretty special screen if it were true.  Couldn't be too hard of a feature to add I would think.  Oh well we'll keep waiting for it...

For field day had an opportunity to use the 7610 hooked to a 46 inch westinghouse large screen, really couldnt tell the difference between that display and my flex 6400m display on my tcl monitor quality wise both looked the same. Very clear and no fuzziness on either.

I actually brought my Flex 6400M out for Field Day and it was a hit!  Had I brought an external display I could have started to sell them on the spot.

IC-7610 only supports 800x600 on an external monitor. Not sure how it was so clear on a 46” display, but good for you. I have a  IC-7610 and an IC-7300 trading those in to get a 6600M

Monitor probably used an up conversion automatically.
