Question  [SOLVED] XBMC no longer in full screen
Post: #1
I have a strange thing with xbmc.
I started it today and it seems as usual.
While it was Scanning my music it switched from Full Screen to windowed mode.
So i tryed to get it back in Full Screen but with no success.
Also restarting the desktop did Not change something.
I have now only windowed Mode availabe, which is not nice watching some movie.
Im running win7 hp 64 with ati grafics and 4 gig of ram, with 11.0 Eden

Can please someone help?

Check the 'overscan' settings in the ATI CCC panel - My Digital Flat-Panel\Scaling Options and make sure the slider is set to 0%. This should be set against each refresh rate that you will use in xbmc.

How did you try to get it back into fullscreen mode? Pressing "\" should toggle between windows and fullscreen mode. If that doesn't work you should provide a log with debugging enabled and replicate the issue. Post it to pastebin and link to it here.

Read this before using these builds.
