View Full Version : TV out Hauppauge 350 not perfect aligned on TV

2004-01-14, 12:48 PM
I am now running version 0.09. When I want to watch live TV or record a show or anything. I am getting a black border on the bottom of the screen and a small thin one at the right side of the screen.
It only happens with GB-PVR and not with WinTV PVR from Hauppauge.
I think it is overscan? Please help.


PS Compliments on this program. It is very promising and quite well working.

Yes, it is the over scan. The screen size appears quite different on different TVs. You can edit the config.xml to get it to correctly fit your screen:


On NTSC width shouldnt add up to more than 720, height 480. Pal width 720, height 576.

I just tried to change the settings.
It surely helps a lot!
Now, how do I exactly move the viewing screen to the right?
Is that the Offsetx and offsety?
But the latter is not by pixels. When I entered 200 for x it shifted left, instead of right. And when I entered 0..if also shifted left. Both resulting in a nig black border on the right side of the TV.

PVR350OffsetX + PVR350Width cant be greater than 720 otherwise PVR350OffsetX is set to (720 - PVR350Width), in effect the picture will start to move the other way... Do you get what I mean?

Thank you!
