WMC and DVB-T2 tuner - some channels warped/fishbowl effect


Well-known Member
I'm almost done building one of these (HTPC, Streacom FC5 chassis):


A couple of small issues when building but there now and everything working fine...

Except that a few channels - including BBC - suffers from a strange fishbowl type effect in WMC (clear/normal in the middle, stretched at the edges).

Any ideas? :confused:

Just to be clear: it doesn't look like the entire picture is being squashed or stretched, just the edges (about a quarter of the screen on each side).

Screen is a 720P Samsung plasma, HTPC is outputting at 720P over HDMI.

Other channels such as E4, etc are perfect. HD channels also working and fine.

Sorry folks, please ignore. I had a couple of things to fix, so did a fresh install with latest drivers. :suicide: All fine now. :)
