    Pretty cool Frodo and handy I might add! Especially for tv out users. But isn't the web saturated with enough of these utilities? Still a great app you got going here. Simplistic, yet useful. Love it!

    I was going for a homegrown, simple implementation. So this is what came out.

    BTW Did you try it ?

    If anybody needs more functionality, just ask, if I can code it, I'll try to add it.

    Yeah I was fiddling with it for a few minutes but I'm on the laptop and I'm running a high rez so really no need for it there, but I do need it on my tv out in the car. Using a TM-701L at 800x480 so this might come in handy.

    I can't seem to get the hotkey to work. I hit ctrl+m, but no such luck I guess. Also, for us touch screen users, is there a way to make it so that the mouse is the actual magnifier window? I guess what I mean is can you make it so that the mouse looks like a huge magnifier? Also having selectable zooms from 2 to 10 might be cool (not sure how deep you are able to go).

    EDIT: nm, got the hotkey to work. There just happens to be some lag time for me between max/min.

    Tried it. Works, but seems quite slow. Quite a bit slower than the magnifier built into Windows XP.

    Shortcut key works fine though.

    As for features, the most obvious requirement is custom zoom level.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    It works instantly here, but I'll check into it. What are you people running it on ?
