PAL video output not full D1


#1

The WD TV mini I’m testing now is fantastic,

but the PAL video output is not the full size as it should be with for instance a DVD player.

I have a issue with that because I want to use 16 WD TV mini units for an old video installation (ART) with CRT monitors.

On these monitors it shows black borders on the edges. I know the mini can do better because with the zoom option in it reaches the full resolution on the output, but that’s zoomed in to much.

It is probably just a matter of a patch in new firmware, but there isn’t any?

Thnks for responding if you know what I’m talking about,

Ramon.

I suffer the same lack of overscan on CRT screens. black borders were they  should NOT be. Even if I zoom in.

On a Sony LCD panel as well you can see a limited dislay area. although smaller black borders.

I hoped for a mini sized replacement of the dvd player .

Why can the device produce a full scale video (with overscan) output when set to 1080i/50 and not when selecting 576i

Let’s hope WD engineers will come with a solution!

Hey Ivo,

I wonder how the WD TV HD (not the mini) is handling the pal video output,

maybe anybody out there knows if there is a difference between WD TV HD and the WD TV Mini?

The specs (output resolution) are of course the same on paper.
