Question View an image on the Fakespace HMD

Hello, not sure if this is the place to ask this, but here goes ..
I'm suspecting that there's a problem with our Fakespace Labs' HMD: it seems to not display enough of the peripheral area. I created a simple 1600 x 1200 px. image (1600 x 1200 is the HMD's max resolution) to test it out:

Now in Vizard this "magic" line of code splits the output into 4 images so that when viewed on the HMD one can take advantage of the wide view angle:
import fakespace
fakespace.wide5(ipd = 0.06, yaw = 11.25, pitchN = 10.0, pitchW = 5.0)
I was wondering if there is a way to load the image above into Vizard or something to really be sure there's a problem with our HMD (i.e., only lines 3-17 will be visible)? If there a way to do this without Vizard that will do too.
I tried simply viewing the image full-screen when the HMD is connected through a DVI splitter (essentialy like the 'mirrored' mode when you connect an external display), no luck, only a part of the image is seen.
