View Full Version : tv not showing full picture
12-26-2004, 02:04 PM
i just got the firefly remote and i plugged my computer into the tv and only a portion of the actual screen is displayed. I messed around with resolutions and display settings on my graphics card and i couldn't find any settings that would work properly. I have a nvidia fx5200 and I'm using the svideo outs. I tried using "clone, dual display, and vertical-span" options, but i ran into size (resolution) difficulties. The tv would look like it's zoomed in rather than showing the whole thing. I need help.

There is a known issue with the current NVidia drivers. You can either adjust the display or roll back to an earlier version of the drivers. This thread describes the options:

i used there methods, but one major problem is that my tv and computer are not in the same room with each other. Therefore I can't see anything on the TV while trying to use the keystone feature. I don't know how I can change the size without being able to see the TV. *sigh*

Some of us have rolled back to the 53.03 driver. It does not have this issue

I'm now wondering if it didn't work because of the resolution on my computer. I had it set as 1280 x 1024, and recently changed it to 1024 x 768 and it worked. Although I also rolled back to the 53.03 driver. Is there any way that I can have the resolution on my computer at 1280 x 1024 and still be able to see everything on my TV? Because so far I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to do so.

it seems the answer to my question is NO...which is very annoying, because now my computer looks crappy at 10 x 7...i love 12 x 10
