Hi, I have a media center PC with the Geforce FX 5200! Yesterday I
downloaded the new NVIDIA driver (7.2.1.4) and I am having a problem with
the video mirror option on the TV! The picture is trimmed somewhat on the
TV, the left and right of the picture are trimmed off. I used the option
under TV output to zoom it out and it works fine until I restart the video
player, it rests itself every time. I even save the new settings as a new
preset every time but that does not help! I have to use the zoom utility
under TV output every time I start a video or DVD player!

I tried to roll back the driver but for some reason it is not working! So
now I am stuck with this one and I really want to get this fixed! Please let
me know if you heard of this issue or if you can help me fix it! Thanks in
advance!

Don't use overlays. The zoom in effect is a bug with the nVidia hardware
overlay. It zooms in slightly.

You can fix this by ( assuming yer using something which uses the Windows
settings ) by going to Windows Media Player, Tools menu, Options,
Performance, Advanced and set the output mode to "Use Video Mixing Renderer"
in "High Quality Mode."

This will avoid the overlay altogether and retain yer TV out screen settings
as well as giving an identical display on bother yer monitor and the TV. (
This will work for Windows Media Player, but not for stuff like PowerDVD.
WinDVD might work, not sure).
