    One way to make your Xenarc (maybe this will work on Lillipus aswell) display 800x480

    Well...

    First set yor screen to 800x600, and then make the screen cut the image (instead of stretching it). Then you make the screen display only the upper part of the screen via the "vert pos" (vertical possition) option.
    (Preferably you place the start menu on the upper side of the desktop).
    Now youve got a bit of the desktop not shown on the screen, but w/e. You don't miss it, do you? Just dont place any icons there. =P

    If your runnig MediaCar you just set the mediacar resolution to 800x480 and your done.

    If your running Frodoplayer its a bit more difficult. Frodoplayer itself will work fine, but the fullscreen option cant be set to use the upper 800x480 pixels. It autopmaticly uses the whole screen, even if FrodoPlayer doesnt. Anyone have any ideas of fixing this? I've thougt about if it could be fixed with a plugin in wmp or anything, but ive not got the skills to fix that.

    Have never tried any of the other software found here, so cant tell you anything abut it...



    Touchscreens:
    In the touchscreen utility you can make the touch panel active with only the shown part of the diplay via the "split screen" option, and then you just adjust the ts to the 800x480 resolution. Then you have to re-calibrate the ts, since the resolution change of some reason screws the x and y axis up. (Can get you ppl some screenshots if you want it)

    Funny, with my NVidia card and Lilliput all I had to do was add a custom resolution of 800x480 and the drivers did the rest...it's nice and Windows native now.

    That's an nVidia-based card. Not everyone's PC has video with an nVidia chipset...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    800x480 is the native resolution of both the Lilliput and Xenarc LCD panels. Anything else (640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, etc.) is running a ratio the LCD isn't designed for. Running it at 800x480 allows it to show the image as it was meant to be displayed, with no stetching or scaling. Better quality that way.

    You just turn on advanced screen settings and edit the ini for exact size
    and positioning.

    Open frodoplayer.ini
    Find this and set it to true.

    [MAIN]
    USE_ADVANCED_SCREEN_SETTINGS=TRUE

    then at the bottom: (This is in pixels)

    [ADVANCED]
    ADV_TOP=0
    ADV_LEFT=0
    ADV_WIDTH=800
    ADV_HEIGHT=480

    My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
    It will be done sometime in the next generation.

    Yes, that makes Frodoplayer use the upper 800x480 pixels. But if you try to play movies in fullscreen (eg doubbleklicking the small movie window in FP) it automaticly fills the whole screen.

    hmmmm, I was wondering why there wasn't an option to do this, I guess I never tried out that option. If it works for me, this will make me very happy

    hmmm, all this did was move the screen up (i guess i did try that option after all), leaving me with black space on the bottom equal to what I cut off on the top. I would really like to be able to have a virtual desktop type thing, but I think for that to work, my video card would still have to be able to output 800x480, right?
