Updated to 10.3

like an idiot and now my media center got screwed up

i got media center to not show the black bars around my plasma while in the menu (don't remember how i did it)
even though when I'm out of media center the whole screen is full

now after i updated to 10.3 like a complete moron now its back to not filling the whole screen while in media center (i use media browser to watch movies)

I have not touched any of the configurations on media center or on windows, so that could not be the case, this was all after I updated to 10.3, but of course its screwed up again!

how can I get it to how it was before?

please help

I have a Radeon HD 5770

Everything was working like I said in the above post great.

Till I updated CCC to 10.3

Now when I'm in Media Center I get these black bars around the border of the screen of my Plasma TV (Witch I have as extender). This was not the case before I updated.

How can I fix this please?

Hi, I concur with Pizzaman. What did you do. e.g.

O/C, ran Driversweeper before install etc

i don't understand what you guys want me to tell you

I UPDATED my HD 5770 card driver from CCC 10.2 to CCC 10.3

After i updated all of a sudden i get black bars on the sides of my Plasma Television Set ,which is what I use for watching movies on ,while using windows media player.

Black bars on the sides, Windows Media Center does NOT fill up the screen completely.

You did something else to cause this. 10.3 drivers work amazing. Uninstall, drive sweep the rest in safe mode, reinstall, get back to us.

When you are running Windows Media Center, right click on the playback screen and select ZOOM. Select the box that will fill the screen for you.

Zoom 1 - Normal aspect ratio
Zoom 2 - Stretch video to remove blank bars on sides
Zoom 3 - Stretch video to remove blank bars on top and bottom
Zoom 4 - Dynamically stretch video to maintain aspect ratio in the middle of the screen.

If you have blank bars on the side of your screen, then you are using Zoom 1 and watching a program that is NOT widescreen format (16x9). You would want to use either Zoom 2 or Zoom 4.
