This is a repost from the HTPC section. Not sure which place would get more attention so I posted in both. I assume you guys have had more experience with this isssue honestly.

------


I finally have my projector up and running. I have a 2.35:1 screen and I have the projector zoomed in so that BluRay's fill the screen. The problem is that when I have WMC launched, the image is running off the top and bottom of the screen, since the WMC image is 16:9. What I am looking for is a WMC theme that places back bars at the top and bottom of the screen, acting as a masking of sorts, so that the WMC is displayed in a 2.35:1 format. I hope that makes sense.

I looked over the thread. Not really what I was looking for. The movies themselves play perfect. I guess what I am asking for is a custom skin for WMC that has black bars on the top and bottom to make the 16:9 sized screen look like its actually 2.35:1.

Actually, took a look at a link in the thread you linked and it might work!

Nope. Tried YXY and could not get it to work with Windows Media Center.

Yeah I didn't have luck with YXY when I used it either. For me it was easier to get a projector that scaled and use a stand alone player.
