    Hi,

    yes, TVs have a native resolution. The closer you set your resolution to the native one, the better your picture will be. It also depends on your connection between PC and TV. What do you use? For example does S-Video automatically output PAL. It just scales the input resolution e.g. 1024x768 down to PAL, which often results in a bad picture. ;)

    PAL: 720x576 (sometimes 768x576)

    Widescreen:
    PAL: 1024*576
    NTSC: 848x480

    Some TVs only accept NTSC widescreen, so you should better stick with normal PAL.

    More information can be found at the PowerStrip forums. Perhaps you can find your TV listed there.

    MP can use all resolutions. You just have to adjust the AR in MP->Settings->GUI. The screen with those arrows and the square.
    There are also quite some widescreen skins out there.

    HTH, Flip.

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...
