myTV screen calibration for PC flatpanel display (1 Viewer)

I am using a flatpanel monitor as my display (15" iiyama 4:3 LCD), it is actually larger than my current TV screen. In fact, I started getting interested in htpc apps when I got this display...

Currently the screen calibration feature of MP only allows to set overscan. With this display, I would rather need "underscan" or zoom.
I played with gottv, I has the nice ability to allow setting zoom and offset per channel.

The ability to zoom in MP would be great; zooming by channel would be outstanding.

[edit]Gee. Now I see I am among the 6% people with this setup: http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=156 :)
I guess I'll try tweaking MP conf meself and see if I've any luck[/edit]

Usable workaround

This has worked for me for tv in OVERLAY mode:
1) go to settings and set any value for overscan, then back to the home screen and exit
2) In the MP install dir, there is now a file, in my case it was called "calibration720x576.xml".
Open it, e.g. with notepad
3) Change values in the following keys:
<entry name="overscanleft">
<entry name="overscantop">
<entry name="overscanwidth">
<entry name="overscanheight">
What I chose do to was add 10% to my 720x576 screen, which is 792x634.
Then I centered the image. The result is:
<entry name="overscanleft">-36</entry>
<entry name="overscantop">-29</entry>
<entry name="overscanwidth">792</entry>
<entry name="overscanheight">634</entry>
4) Save the file. Restart MP and watch the result

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work in VMR9 windowless mode ???

HTH

There is long time ago since the last post here. I have a question. How can I activate pass-through in LAV? Is bitsreaming the same like pass-through? When I disable bitstreaming in LAV-filter and watch a movie with 5.1 sound, then the voice is missing. It seems like stereo. When I activate bitsreaming then it works how it should. I'm...

I'd be happy to test DVb-t here. I live in Australia and I seem to recall tv channel scanning inside MP a long time ago.... Hmm it worked fine back then.. I don't recall the version it was. Anyway.. An MP GUI for the basic settings would be great! Consider scanning, channels, groups, DVb-epg.. A separate app for tv settings? We...

Your pause states should also sync across okay so you can resume watching where you left off. This is useful when about to fall asleep in my living room when watching via MediaPortal and then resume on my SmartTV with Kodi in the bedroom :)
