    When running MP in fullscreen mode in 1920x1080, everything works fine until after stopping a video, when MP somehow thinks the resolution is 1280x720 and draws all the graphics too big, causing only parts of it to be visible on screen. Just pressing "back" instead of "stop" will bring back MP in the correct 1920x1080 resolution.

    Discussed more in detail and with findings here:
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...ht_video_resolution_after-t29106.html?t=29106

    Screenshots included at above URL.

    Only happens in Vista, not in XP. MPTestTool2 logs for both Vista (fails) and XP (works fine) included.

    From the logs, it seems as if the false 1280x720 resolution is got from "D3D" something, while the other DX diags report 1920x1080.

    bump. should i report this in the 0.2.3.0-release forum also? hearing about other people with the same problem ... no response here :(

    Edit: Apparently this is related to a 150% DPI setting in Vista ...... ?

    Wrong DPI

    This problem is linked to the DPI setting in Windows Vista. I shouldn't be a problem to fix this bug / create a workaround since the problem only occurs when stoping videoplayback.
