I have been using MPC-HC for a long time, so I am well versed in how it works. I just don't understand a couple of things.
1. Why are there two sections for changing the video display? (video frame and pan/scan). It does affect things when changing; stretch to window, touch from inside, and touch from outside. I just don't know what it's doing. They look the same some times which leads to my next question. B/c it has affected what should be the proper a/r. So what should I keep the video display section on? I keep the a/r on "default", but it does not seem to default to proper a/r in all files.
2. I use Media Info. A couple files (that are old 1080p) say the "display aspect ratio" is 16:9. However when playing the file in 16:9 or "Default", the display comes out as 2:40:1? I can scale to 16:9 in pan/scan section but I can not like other files change the A/R in "video frame". Obviously it has the same result, but I should not have to do either since according to Media Info it is 16:9? So is Media Info's data incorrect for the 1080p files? Some of the 1080p files are 2:40:1 and display correctly in Default.
3. In order to play files with 2160p res. I have to use the EVR. So is it a correct statement that you can only change the video display in "system default" and EVRcp, not the regular EVR?
