I would like to be able to define my own zoom modes.

currently in Live TV the zoom setting zooms in a bit to much.
it would be great i I could adjust the zoom percentage in each mode.

thanks..

Yeess, it would also like this very much, but was not brave enough to ask.

With my PRV350, I have small black borders around the image, when use zoom-mode on my widescreen.
I have also a small withe line on the bottom when I watch in normal mode (I think from something like teletext).

If I just could zoom a little bit more.....

Thanks anyway for a great product...

I've had the same problem (just like anyone who uses this mode). The screensettings-calibration-tool does'nt allow negative values. The only way to eliminate the black borders (which are within the videosignal and normally disapperearing on TV) is to edit the overscan-values in the config xml-file direct: my "calibration1024x768.xml" now looks like:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<profile>
  <section name="screen">
    <entry name="offsetx">0</entry>
    <entry name="offsety">0</entry>
    <entry name="offsetosd">23</entry>
    <entry name="overscanleft">-36</entry>
    <entry name="overscantop">-26</entry>
    <entry name="overscanwidth">1096</entry>
    <entry name="overscanheight">821</entry>
    <entry name="pixelratio">0,9400001</entry>
    <entry name="subtitles">718</entry>
  </section>
</profile>

Works well for my 4:3 display. You have to calibrate the pixelratio first with the calibration-tool and then edit the other values with a texteditor. That's it :) I don't know if it works for Widescreen-displays. give it a try.

Thank you Thomas for the tip about the config xml-file.

I will give this a try, but I assume, that then everything is 'zoomed out' a little, even recorded files like AVI aso, where there is no black border around it?

But it is probably worth trying.

Sure. Every video media you are playing with the built in player will be zoomed overscanned - not only the TV output. But as long as the zoom for TV is not able to do this on it's own this a quite good workaround. :)

Copy or move the TV recordings that are older to another hard disk. Then specify this path under Videos (not TV). Then you can watch these recordings normally again.

The installer is built with NSIS. I don't think that there is a silent install. I am currently finishing some work on MPTagThat 2 and will make a silent installer there. If you are interested to test, let me know.

Good you solved it. It’s indeed really strange as xaml always uses „.“ as decimal separator. There are also several other code lines in same file and other files, where the dot seems to make no trouble. It’s unclear why only this line causes issues. I tried again as in your video and no issue here :confused:
