I have a strange TV. It's *supposed* to be 1080i, but it only has
enough dots for 720p (1300ish x whatever). And -- to boot -- it can
only handle 1024x768 via HDMI or VGA inputs. (I ordered a DVI ->
component cable -- so -- hopefully that will fix things when the cable
Anyway -- my problem:
I have more than one High Def tuner. I have a HDHomerun, and I also get
HD via Firewire off of my cable box. The HD from HDHomerun becomes
nicely fullscreen at a 4:3 zoom (or a fill) The HD from the firewire
signal *always* has top and bottom bars. The only way I've found to get
rid of it is to mess with the vertical percentage (page 7 or so of setup
/ tv / playback). If I set this to 12-15%, it becomes full screen, but
all other tuners are cropped.
So -- I need an option for true fullscreen.
I discussed this a bit on the -users list, and decided that it would
probably be best to just implement the feature as a new custom zoom:
* Add a Setup GUI entry to assign a custom zoom vertical and
horizontal stretch (could be %tage based)
* Add a new "Custom Zoom" option to the list of zooms.
At least, that was all *I* could think of. But, they warned me of all
the discussions of zoom -vs- aspect ratios, so I thought I'd mail here,
and see what you guys thought, before I got started.
Thanks in advance,
