    Is there any way to make the TV Zoom mode zoom just a little bit more? Our broadcaster has an annoying line at the top of the picture that is normally cropped on an ordinary TV due to overscan.

    I have tried using the crop settings, but it seems to be applied before the zoom and if i get the picture right in zoom mode, then all my other zoom modes are out.

    Thanx
    Hein

    Hi Heina

    I do not think you can adjust zoom percentage in MP.

    You should address this on your DSTV decoder:
    Menu
    Advanced
    TV Installation
    Pin=9949
    Aspect ratio
    Select 16:9
    (exact steps may differ depending on your decoder)

    I've tried that, but then it chops off to much of the image when it is not 16:9, and it stretches the 4:3 to much. I basically jump between Non-Linear Stretch and Zoom in MediaPortal, depending on what is showing.

    Thanx though..

    Unfortunately the crop setting seems to get applied before the zoom. If I'm zoomed and I crop the image, I have to apply 100px top & 100px bottom to get rid of the line and keep the image centered. Then If I go to Non-Linear Stretch, it has cropped exactly the same amount - which I don't want, since then 100px get trimmed off the image top and bottom.

    What would work IMHO is a crop setting for each individual zoom mode.
