    Hi

    Having a play with FFdshow all night within Theatretek but to be honest I can't see it making any real difference
    I have used the following guide recomended here to start me of
    http://htpcnews.com/main.php?id=ffdshowdvd_1

    Now one of the reasons that I may not be seeing any difference is that I can seem to scale the image any higher than the dvd resolution 720x480 without it looking really grainy and over filling the screen and triming the image

    I wonder what I am doing wrong when you guys seem to be able to attain 1.5 to 2 times the resolution of your screens

    Things get even worse on my projector which has a resolution of 1365 x 1024
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Many thanks

    IIRC the only time I've seen it do that is when you start playing a file then change the resize settings during playback, if you stop it and press play again it should be ok.

    Hi Owain

    I think I found the problem
    If you change the resolution in Ffdshow you have to restart Theatretek in order for it to rescale to the size of the screen

    Many thanks
