Hello all,

I'm in the process of building a Home Theatre PC however, as I am using a standard Widescreen TV (not HD), I want to output an 800x600 image that is squashed at the sides (i.e. anamorphic) so my TV can then 'unsquash' it . Because of the way I am outputting the video I am limited to 640x480 or 800x600.
Has anyone heard of any software that can do this? (my video card is an MX440 and current detonator drivers don't seem to have an option for it).
Thanks.

play it in wide screen and set the tv to widescreen.

have a look at zoomplayer (http://www.inmatrix.com/), its quite handy for doing playback on tv.

I'm assuming this will only work for DVDs and media player through zoom player. I wondered if there was a way of 'permanently' outputting an anamorphic image for the desktop/internet/photo slideshows etc...
