    Finally got our laptop connected to projector and high def stuff is amazing.

    One problem still remains.

    We can't seem to get rid of the play controls when watching the high def stuff on full screen.
    We've tried moving the mouse and it hasn't worked.
    They are a tad distracting, but otherwise the picture is brilliant.

    Your help would be very much appreciated :lease:

    PS we were in disagreement about whether to keep Arcam or Oppo DVD player.After seeing the High Def stuff, my hubby now wants to sell both and build a HCPC.

    Have you made sure the pin button is not clicked in.

    When in full screen mode the pin will show up on the top right next to the maximize and close button.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the input.

    I've done what you've suggested and I still can't clear it.
    It says 'Hide full-screen controls automatically', but they still remain.

    Your mouse cursor cannot be at the top or bottom of the screen, otherwise it brings up the conrols, put your mouse cursor in the middle or to the side, and the controls should auto hide...
