Windows 7
16:9 problems

I recently bought a Acer V243HD and i'm planning to use it both as monitor and TV.
I use a Asus My Cinema-P7131 tv card gekocht, PowerCinema 5 was provided with it but I had problems with sound it contained noise.

So I siwtched to Windows Media Center 11 and have excellent sound though tv is shown in 4:3 instead of 16:9 no mather what settings and resolutions I choose.

This is a screenshot of what I mean, you can see that the middle part is used (upper and lower parts aswell as it is abit grey)

1920x1080 (1080p)

Hi sjors86, welcome to the forums.

Have you tried to right-click while playing a video/broadcast? From there you can select a 'zoom' function, there are 4 to choose from. I find Zoom 3 the best for widescreen videos.

Give it a try

Hope it helps

Seriously I feel so stupid, I ofcourse tried the right mouse button but I just got information about the current program. Now I noticed there were more options to the right, thank you very much the zoom fixed my problem
