Full-Screen changes nVidia TV Screen Adjustment
I'm using the TV as a secondary monitor (Clone mode) to play movies. In nVidia there is a setting which can change the screen position and size (zoom) on the TV at "Screen Adjustments".
When I switch to full-screen, BSPlayer change this size\zoom setting to full causing the picture to be bigger than the TV frame. When you switch back to window-mode you can see that the size of the picture is bigger cause the task bar is almost hidden. To fix it you should manually go to the nVidia settings.

Me Too
This is exactly what happens with mine too!

Anybody have any suggestions??

Setting nvidia to single mode is presently the only way that it will work for me, problem is clone mode is needed to have my monitor work.

I think I have a workaround ...
I doesn't happen when in 'Preferences > Video' I select:
- General: Remember Pan-Scan settings ONLY
- Video Rendereing: Wait for vertical blank

Thanks, will try that!

Me too
I had this problem too, but I dont know if this fixes it but seems to have worked, I use latest Nvidia players from Nvidia (not manufactures drivers like asus etc). And I had this problem when switching to TV that nvidia Zoomed in so that the picture was too big, this mad me angry.

Had to live with it for a while, the be chance I discoverd that if you go to TV mode, and then go to where you can "ZOOM" in and out the picture, select "standard values" then use the "SAVE" settings and enter a name.

Done, this has worked for me now for 4 days. I donno why but seems now that when I use the Nvidia Icon, select Nview then "TV" it goes to TV mode it looks fine, not this constand ZOOMing in all the time.

This might be a bug in Nvidia drivers, but this seems to work fine.

Probably other methods ? but this works.

Allso this problem has only been around for a few builds of the drivers this didnt happend before.

This might help you.

P.S. You need to switch to TV mode to access this menu that zooms the picture.

Re: I think I have a workaround ...
I have the same problem. When i set BSPlayer to Force RGB Mode it stopped zooming (so when i am not using overlay). I prefer using overlay however (because it's an older system i use for TV-OUT --> CPU load gets to around 90% when not using overlay).
I also tried another player (ZoomPlayer) and that one didn't zoom in on the TV when setting to FullScreen.

I'll try this when i get home! :)

SchizoSirhc 18th October 2004 04:16 PM

doesnt work for me :(
soguy do you use overlay mode?

Dennis_Olof 18th October 2004 07:14 PM

Soguy, I have this options enabled in BSplayer but I still have this problem. Now that I think of it, I cant remember any other program making the Nvidia Zoom Settings go wrong and zoom in. Only when I use BSplayer I get this problem sometimes.

Perhaps it IS a problem with BSplayer doing some bad things that makes Nvidia settings zoom in or somehow.

Now that you mentioned those settings I guess I need to experiment or find out what the functions do and try them and hope I can get rid of the problem..

Thanks for advice.

Thanks SchizoSirhc for the advice on RGB
Here is what solves the problem for me as you said.

Works great now and CPU load ? I dont know of besides im on a 2.0Ghz system so dont care about it.

Anyway here is what happend.

It seems RBG aint as good quality as "overlay mode 1" but I have to live with it untill they fix it if they ever will. I hate when the picture on the TV zooms in.

Bah :/

Cheers mate

Dennis_Olof 23rd October 2004 06:35 PM

This works too.
By using VRM-9 this option allso avoids the "zoom in bug" in BSplayer when in TV mode :]

Good to know, but seems BS Player team dont know about this problem.

Though all others should know


soguy 3rd November 2004 05:59 PM

Sorry for not replying ...
I'm using VMR-9 renderless with the settings I mentioned above and it's working fine now.

Joy 4th January 2005 08:47 PM

Did anybody find out how to fix this problem? Could this be a problem of Windows XP or DirectX 9.0c?

I didn't try to make tests on Windows 2000 with DX 9.0c yet, but i seems like with DX 8.1b everything works just fine - i haven't seen this problem before i started to use Windows XP SP2.

Joy 4th January 2005 09:17 PM

Huh. Bug rides on a bug. Well, well, well.

Did you ever try to change "Video -> Color controls" while playing a video in a VMR-9 mode? Don't trust them all. Here's what i got:

BSplayer v1.02.812, Unhandled exception at EIP: 00512FE8

That's pretty ridiculous. Hrrrrm, is BSPlayer team going to fix this or not?

Joy 10th January 2005 04:30 PM

I regret to realize that "the zoom bug" is not related to BSPlayer. Recently i tried to play around with Windows Media Player and PowerDVD. The same behaviour.

I guess something wrong goes with nVidia drivers while working with DirectX 9.0 release.

Let's see what happens on W2K with DX9. Later ...

P.S. Hello, people, does any body hear me? :)

I've found the solution!
And it works 100% sure!

First, open regedit (Start > Execute > Regedit or c:\windows\regedit.exe)
make a backup (file > exporting)

In regedit, search for "videoborder"

You'll find some keys like that :
(the name depends on your nvidia graphic card but it's always followed by ".videoborder")

The set number should be 01 00 00 00
But some of them have this number : 00 00 00 00
If so, modify the number and correct it so that a "1" appears on the second number : 01 00 00 00 like it should be.

once again the correct answer is for example...
NV36ZORAN.525@60Hz.videoborder = 01 00 00 00

Close regedit when every key has a one in it.
Reboot you're computer for the changing to take effect.

Then you can open your videos in full screen, it'll never zoom in like it used to!
It's fixed, finally!!!!
Good luck and happy viewing!
