    Video screen squashed. HELP NEEDED!

    Hi folks,
    when I playback Video in MC my lilliput will only display in half of it height with the puicture very shallow accross the middle. The old Wide screen movie black bars really p**s me off when the Lilli is supposed to be widescreen format anyway.
    It used to do it before with a previous software install but then it only had very narrow black bars, now the picture is only half the height of the screen and its squashed.

    Any idea whats causing this, I've tried changing the screen res of my EPIA V8000 from its lowest 800x600 to 1024x768 with both 60hz & 75hz and it makes no difference?

    I had the same problem with mine. I think it could be a lack of a true wide screen resolution in the video driver.

    yup. the onboard video doesn't support widescreen, atleast last I heard. you'd have to get a different video card.

    so why is it not like that all the time with every film everytime? Sometimes they fill the screen, other times they only fill 3/4's of it...

    On some movies the black bars is a part of the picture on DivX, XviD etc....

    what Im saying is that sometimes the same film will be more squashed than other times... Same film, same Codec, same player prog, same PC, same video driver, same screen.
