Hi. I've recently been setting up MP with StreamedMP (which is incredable) and fixing up My TV which is pretty much OK except for one thing which is really bugging me.

I've attached a screenshot of the My TV panel which as you can see looks pretty bad. It looks like this with the TV frame on or off and no other background images have this same problem.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this as I really don't know whats wrong?! Also, I shoul add that sometimes when I select the TV frame to go to fullscreen, the background can be seen completly, as though theres some panel overlapping that part of it.

Thanks for you help.

OK, I wasnt sure what aspect ratio I am actually running (noob). How do I change that; is it just via screen resolution? I' messed arond with the res a bit but found that it actually didn't have any impact on MP. Its set to 1024x768. What should I be looking for here?

OK, I'v fixed the aspect ratio now. Had to adjust the TV settings too (doh!). But any ideas on my original problem?

    They are usually aspect ratio related, so if you have now corrected this, should look fine, if not what graphics chip\card are you running, also the screen resolution you are running would be useful.

    Should look like this.

    I have the res set to 1280 x 720. My TV connection is VGA from onboard Nvidia 630i. Still not resolved.

    I still havn't gotten to the bottom of this issue. Could anyone tell me the names of the graphics in the skins folder which should be appearing here? I've gone through the xml files but I cant really figure out where the graphics are called up.

    Even though I reinstalled the skin I think it looks like something like missing or corrupt files so your help would be great.

    From your screen shot it looks like you are using TVE2, as far as i know losttown (designer of the TV section) has only put support in for TVE3 Server.

    Thanks, that would make sense as I'm not using TV-Server. I had major issues trying to install TV-Server, specifically the MS SQL which caused serious issues on my HTPC (blue screen of death on startup). From messing about with the configuration I realised I didn't need TV-Server so I just left it out. Looks like I'll have to figure out how to get TV-Server installed without issues now.
