Hi,

I've recently switched over to nVidia after being 'with' ATI for a few years. I'm finding the control panel good, but more complicated than the ATI equivalent and as such I'm having a hard time getting things set up the way they were. I've got most of it (took me a while to get videos playing full screen from the PC to the TV) but I'm stuck on one aspect.

Basically, I tend to play DVD's on the PC, but I have it set up so that they display in full screen on the TV in the other room. Now, with the ATI CP there was an option to 'maintain aspect ratio' or something like that. I can't find the option in the NV control panel, and I'm finding that when I play a DVD on the PC, it converts it to full screen on the TV but the ends (sides) are chopped off a bit. I need it to add black bars at the top and bottom of the full screen picture so that I get the full width. How do I do that?

Thanks a lot for your help :)

Simon

Not sure if this is what you are lookin' for but from the nvidia control panel select 'nView Display Settings'. Click on the 'Device Settings >>' (lower right hand corner). Select 'Device Adjustments...'. Right click on and read the explanation of each of those four options and see if one will work for you.


Good Luck

Hi :)

Thanks for the response, but unfortunately those 4 options only deal with how the picture is displayed on the monitor, not the TV. I'm going to have a play with an external program so I'll see how I go with that ;)
