Windows 7: Possible to have different resolution in WMC than used on desktop?

Possible to have different resolution in WMC than used on desktop?

Hello all.

My desktop resolution is 1920x1200. But when I watch TV on WMC the image seems stretched...People seem tall and thin. Is it possible to set a separate resolution for WMC than the one I use for everything else? So that when I watch TV on WMC it automatically switches to a resolution of say 1080x1920 without having to go into my GPU and change the resolution manually.

Thanks for any help provided.

Hello again H mate you must have the NVidia control centre and in mine it only lists the computer monitor so I am wondering if you plug in the TV does it get listed in there? If so looks like you can pre set it maybe click on it when using the TV??

Hello mate.

I wanted to try and get a different resolution with WMC(full screen)....still using the same monitor....but then go back to original resolution when coming out of full screen and back to desktop. Hope this makes some sort of sense LOL It maybe just my imagination but folk look slightly stretched...(taller/thinner)

Time zone now changed...cheers for the heads-up
