No PIcture/Video when watching tv or film in fullscreen with 1920*1080.
Sound and SUBTITLES is ok

* tv signal and film can be watched in preview window in mytv/epg etc..
* no problem when MP is in window mode.
* no probem If i use lower screen resoulution.

I have searched the forum and found many people with the same problem. This problem seem to have randomly solutions. I have tried a lot of tricks but no luck.

Does anybody know what causing this problem?
I em not shure that this problem is ralated to the 96DPI problem!

se this tread:

Here is different things i have tried.
-uncheck/check "Use Exclusive DirectX mode - avoids tearing"
-reselect codecs, in dropdownlist
-Autosize windowmode on skin & start in fullscreen
-switch off VMR9 in directshow
-window fontsize to 96dpi *yes i have tried this
-deleted the folderdatabase3.db3, (havent tried this one)
-turning off hardware accaleration of powerdvd
-Enhanced Video Renderer Settings> enable Use Enhanced Video Renderer
EDIT-->reduced the Color Quality to low and back to high(32bit), in Windows Display Properties, Settings.
EDIT-->last trick worked for me.

Is this the famous 96DPI 128DPI Problem?

Does enyone think my problem is related to the DPI problem?

    Yes this is the famous dpi problem when using directx ;)
    Set it back to normal 96 & it should work fine.

    I have a new trick that worked for me.
    I reduced the Color Quality to low and back to high(32bit), in Windows Display Properties, Settings.
    Fullscreen in 1920*1080 works even with fontsize DPI 128.

    But what is causing this problem?

    I've noticed the same behaviour and have been wondering why it was happening. I'm running at 1920x1080 and 120dpi font size.

    I have MP set to run in fullscreen when started. When I watch TV, only "Original" aspect ratio shows a picture unless I exit fullscreen mode by pressing ALT+ENTER on the keyboard, watch a TV channel, then re-enter fullscreen with ALT+ENTER. Once I do this, the video plays once again in any aspect ratio in full screen.

    Very annoying to have to do this everytime I start MP, however.

    Update: I changed the font size back to 96dpi, restarted, and the video is working fine again in full screen at 1920x1080
