    I would like to suggest improved Fullscreen<->Window handling.

    Usually when you double click an application (be it PowerDVD, Media Player, etc..), the program instantly jumps from fullscreen mode to Window Mode, preserving what ever is on the screen.

    Currently in MP, if you double-click the screen (Live TV), it shows the "On Now" screen instead of going into Window Mode.
    Often we need to do something in Windows quickly while MP is running. At the moment we need to shut down MP to quickly access the Desktop (ALT-TAB and CTRL-ENTER messages are blocked or ignored).

    If you force Windowed Mode by pressing ALT+ENTER, it takes a long time for it to restore itself in a Window (I think MP is restarting the TV Service or something), rather than preserving the TV stream and redirecting the current output from a fullscreen overlay/VMR to a window/hWnd. Plus I think there is a bug when you press ALT+ENTER. When in a Window, the "On Now" OSD dialog is stuck onscreen. Here is a picture of the stuck OSD:

    I see, no worries I'll work around it for now.

    I didn't realize this was raised before. I always search before posting, guess I didn't search hard enough :p

    Thanks anyway :)

    Alt-Enter switches between fullscreen and windowed. Thats the keybind im used anyway (quake engine:D)
