    I would like to be able to start an MP client (my work PC in my home office) in Mini TV mode on my desktop. I am looking for an option in the configuration program I've missed, or maybe a command-line option (if it exists). I have searched the forums and the wiki to no avail.

    I can get it how I want it by using the /windowed command-line option to start MP, then choose Options | MiniTV Mode from the menu, then resize it to the way it was last time I closed it. I am hoping there is a way to start it in MiniTV mode, have it remember the window size and position, and not have to go through the extra steps above.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Darn, I was hoping one of the devs would chime in and say "Oh, there's an undocumented command line switch, try this....".

    Guess not :(

    Where can I make a request to add such a feature? I imagine quite a few people would find it useful.
