Custom resolution for Powerpoint template on 16:9 HDTV?
Posted on 2012-04-13
Hi folks, at my work we've put up a 42" Plasma HDTV as digital signage. I connected a small nettop PC to it via HDMI to run a Powerpoint presentation that was authored in Powerpoint 2007.
I've done the setup in the presentation to use 16:9 aspect, and horizontally it is fine in that respect. But now I have a vertical letterbox that I can't seem to get rid of.
Futzing around with custom resolutions doesn't seem to get me anywhere. I'd like to be able to use 100% of the screen with this presentation but can't seem to find a way to make it happen. The Windows 7 desktop (when Powerpoint isn't running) takes up 100% of the screen so I'm not sure why Powerpoint is creating letterboxes.
Does someone know how to create a custom resolution that will fill the entire screen of the HDTV?
