Default 1:1 pixel question

i have my ps3 and my pc connected to my full hd lcd, when i watch a bluray using the ps3 my tv gives me the option of 1:1 pixel, which is ideal (hd with no scaling) but when i watch the same bluray using my computer with the powerdvd programme that came with my blu ray drive, it only lets me choose either 16:9 or 4:3. Not a big issue because even at 16:9 it looks better than the ps3 at 1:1 but i would like to know why i don't get the option

How are you connecting the PC? If you use an input intended for a PC it probably is fixed to 1:1 and only the aspect ratio would be required to be set. If you are using a HDTV resolution for your PC, the 16:9 is what you want to use.

Most likely it is like I said, that input is fixed to 1:1.
