    Hi there, currently trying to use my TV to see a DVD but XP only allows me to drop the resoution to 800x600 and I need to drop to 640x480 to get it to fit. Normally you can go in to customize and change the programs association but the one I want to change is Media Player and as that is XP based it will not go down that far, what can I do, has anyone sorted this out yet?
