    Can someone help, I keep getting a white dot appearing on my Monitor and Panny AE100 when I run Power DVD, I am also using Powerstrip set at WIDE 480 (856x 480).

    It can't be a dead pixel as the Monitor shows the problem as well as my Panny. I can get rid of the dot by moving the vertical image using Vertical position on the panny. It's getting to me now as I want to have a clear image and the damn thing keeps staring at me!

    Cheers

    On the bottom left hand corner?

    Like the mouse isn't fully off the screen, but it is?

    A quirk of Power DVD I'm afraid.

    I don't think it's ever been fixed by anyone, hopefully someone will prove me wrong :D

    Yesssss, somebody else has this problem too, its not just me.

    Bottom left hand corner, looks like the status bar is not being fully covered. Definitely not a pixel because I can change the aspect mode on the projector so that the image is a smaller rectangle in the middle of the screen and the white dot moves with the image.

    Currently I'm avoiding the problem by using a 4:3 aspect ratio resolution in windows (1280x960) and then telling my widescreen panel projector to zoom-in on the middle 16:9 portion of the image resulting in the top and bottom being cropped. This is just a workaround until I get the latest firmware installed in the projector that supports a native resolution of 1280x720 via DVI. When that happens I'm going to have the white-dot problem.

    One solution would be to run the bottom edge of the image into a black border.

    Could always try clicking on the Windows status bar and choosing the option 'always on top? - NO' or 'hide task bar'... I personally have my windows status bar at the top of the screen anyway..

    Worth a try :)

    That doesn't work, unfortunately.

    I shift the pic downwards by pixel.

    That works :D
