View Full Version : Narrowed video on TV out?

01-07-07, 07:35 PM

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.

I also 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.

Thank you in advance.

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?
