Hello.

I am using NVIDIA driver v93.71 with my new EVGA GeForce 7950 GT KO video card. I seem to notice some videos are not aspect correct (a little vertical squished -- people looking thinner) on my old CRT 20" Sharp TV that is connected to an old Toshiba VCR via a RCA video cable from my video card.

I fiddled with the NVIDIA's display properties and I can't seem to get the full screen overlay to be perfect. Did I miss anything? I never had this problem with my older NVIDIA cards and drivers. I am not sure if I can use the older drivers with my new card.

Thank you in advance. :)

I tried an older (92.91 beta) and a newer beta driver (93.81). Both did give me a bigger picture size, but I still get the thin people and items problem. :( Basically, the picture was more bigger and fuller, but the aspect/ratio is still wrong.

v84.21 wouldn't install since my card wasn't detected.

OK, I noticed something. I think the TV picture is exactly square. Hence the squished in horizontal mode.

Is there a way to resize this full screen overlay on my TV?

The simple solution I've discovered is to:

1. EXTEND YOUR DESKTOP TO YOUR SECONDARY MONITOR (TV)

2. DISABLE FULL SCREEN VIDEO

3. DRAG YOUR PLAYER OF CHOICE OVER TO THE EXTENDED DESKTOP

4. GO FULL SCREEN WITH YOUR CHOSEN PLAYER (USUALLY A DBL CLICK ANYWHERE IN THE VIEW AREA)

THAT'S IT!!
