    16:10 live TV - any way to get it looking right?

    I think I already know the answer to this but whatever:
    My A100 is hooked up via hdmi to DVI to my old 16:10 LCD monitor, in the PCH setup I have to select a 16:9 resolution for the video out otherwise the MVPMCx2 menu never loads up. However, as a result when watching live TV the aspect ratio is never quite right, by default it is stretched vertically, but hitting the zoom button results in fat heads.
    Is there any way around this?

    I guess the bes option would be to have the PCH running in 16:10 1440x900 but this requires mvpmcx2 to support and I have no idea what would be involved from martin to implement.
    The other way is if there were other zoom options on the PCH???

    It's no biggie, its a 3rd TV in the spare room, and it is watch able but it would be nice if I could sort it.

    Martin?

    Sorry, as I told you here http://forums.gbpvr.com//showthread....143#post368143 mvpmcx2 doesn't support VGA modes. My experience adding simple 480p/576p support wasn't pleasurable and it's not something I want to repeat.

    Yep I remember the post, I guess at the time I didn't realise that it would affect the TV playback. I assumed it would only impact the menu rendering.
    No worries, I can live with it.....it doesn't look like I can persuade you to add support.

    I would like to take this opertunity to thank you for all your hard work on MVPMCx2, it realy is the dogs danglies.

    Think I'll take a look at the monitors service menu to see if I can manually squash the screen vertically
