Hello,

Im new to Media Portal and before I go out and buy a tv tuner card I wanted to test out everything else. I like MP because it allows me to play my .avi files and keeps all my videos in order..unlike WMC. But the major problem I'm having is that when I start watching a movie it does 2 things I Don't like:

1. It takes about a minute to start while the screen flickers black.

2. When it does start to run the video is tiny and small in the middle of the screen. I tried changing the aspect, zooming...

The videos work perfectly in Windows Media Player but are complete surrounded by a black box in MP.

Im using a 37" Flatscreen at the 1366x768 resolution. Can someone please help. Thank you

4 gigs of ram, Quad 2.4 cpu, geforce 8800gt, and the codec for the file I am unsure of. its most likely divx and its running on Vista x64 if that matters

    Well it ain't a lack of power then :)

    Are you using EVR as renderer (MPConfig "expertmode top right" look for directshow control\renderer)

    i think i figured it out... how do i change the default screen resolution... when i first start the screen res is 1088x614 and when i play a video it changes to 1388X768 or something near that, hence the screen blinking when i hit play.
