Hi guys! biggrin.gif

Don't shoot me because I have done a search but that has only raised more questions so I'll keep it simple.

I have a PAL Xbox and use XBMP 2.3. I use a 16:9 screen and wanted to know how to set XBMP to widescreen and PAL resolution. I don;t think it automatically detects this from the dash(???). I have scaled down a lot of my images to 720x480 and the XBOX autoscales these to 720x576 as it is outputing PAL, but how do I set the default resolution to 720x576 and use higher native resolution pictures. I know it has to do with the config.xml and skin.xml files but what fo I have to change? I know i have to insert a line into config.xml but I don't know where to put it. Can any of you kind folks help another xbox brother? Really appreciate it if someone who has done this can help.

Anyway, thanks for reading and a double big thanks for replying beerchug.gif

Cheers all!

Heres what ya looking for, dont know if you can just add this to your Config.xml or if you will need a newer CVS..

<!-- Set the resolution you want XBMP to run in -->
<!-- 1 - Use Xbox video settings to determing -->
<!-- 2 - NTSC 720x480 @ 4:3 -->
<!-- 3 - NTSC 720x480 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 4 - PAL 720x576 @ 4:3 -->
<!-- 5 - PAL 720x576 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 6 - HDTV 1280x720 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 7 - HDTV 1920x1080 @ 16:9 -->
<resolution>4</resolution>

goodluck

ok, heres my problem.

i move my xbox between 4:3 and 16:9 tv`s.
And use m$ dash to play DVD.

Therefore i change the widescreen settings in M$ dash.

But if i set it to widescreen, i only get the error that its not supported in the skin.
I did this one weekend when i didnt have a pc, and since i have XBMP as dash, i couldnt watch my rented DVDs ....

i have it set to autodetect:
<!-- Set the resolution you want XBMP to run in -->
<!-- 1 - Use Xbox video settings to determing -->
<!-- 2 - NTSC 720x480 @ 4:3 -->
<!-- 3 - NTSC 720x480 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 4 - PAL 720x576 @ 4:3 -->
<!-- 5 - PAL 720x576 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 6 - HDTV 1280x720 @ 16:9 -->
<!-- 7 - HDTV 1920x1080 @ 16:9 -->
<resolution>1</resolution>

what do i need to change in the skin.xml?, and isnt there an easier way when using both 4:3 and 16:9 tv`s
skin.xml:
<skin>

<widescreen>false</widescreen>
