manually adjust screen resolution to fill widescreen TV
Posted on 2006-05-30
Im not sure if this is the right section or not, but here goes...
I have recently built a Windows Media Centre 2005 PC with an Nvidia 5200 as its graphics card. There are some widescreen resolutions that I can choose, but they are all way too small. The largest resolution I can choose is 800x600, but this leaves 2 black sidebars. I am using the latest Nvidia drivers and I can see in the advanced options there is an option for screen size/adjustment, but this lets you move the screen around, but not stretch it.
I wondered if there was a file I could manually edit to force it to a resolution that fills up the TV, as the lower resolutions cut off most of the text/buttons in dialog boxes!
