    is it possible to create a shortcut to change the output resolution of my htpc, one for plasma 852x480 and one for projector 960x540. i need to be able to change resolution by remote control. step by step instructions would be prefered.

    thanks

    No problem using the Powerstrip software. Configure the desired resolution (and test it). On the main "display profiles" screen, select "save as...". Powerstrip will then prompt you as to whether you wish to create a desktop shortcut - click OK, and you are done.

    If this doesn't work, you may have the "Disable shortcut creation prompts" option disabled in the powerstrip options. Just enable it and try again.

    Yep, Powerstrip is the way to go here.

    Pretty easy to setup - save your resolution, options, hotkey manager, add binding (ctrl+alt+??).
