Thumbnail scaling issue

MrPhil
I've just installed the latest version to try and like it, but there seems to be a couple of scaling issues. The first one is on the Synopsys screen, when a programme is partially watched and the green percentage bar is shown at the bottom of the thumbnail, the actual image thumbnail is incorrectly scaled horizontally, so is squashed with large black borders. This is inconsistent to reproduce.

The other issue is on extenders, the blue background of the Title screen which shows all episodes listed in a season doesn't reach the bottom of the screen and the episode titles then run off the bottom. This doesn't happen on the main pc.

Let me know if you need more information.

Which theme are you using? Can you send a screenshot of the thumbnail scaling problem?

For some reason by default addins on extenders do not fill the whole screen. If you go into the settings (use your remote or keyboard to go to wrench icon in the corner of the screen) there are settings for overscan and underscan. If you play with those you can get it to fill the screen.

Ok, so I've now realized that the blue box not being long enough causing the text to spill out of the bottom only occurs when setting the overscan setting to fill the screen on the Extender. The blue background seems to be of fixed height and does not increase to fill the screen. Also, notice that there is a weird bleed-through of the background image below the tite/channel in this screenshot, which doesn't occur in the second screenshot. The resolution is set to 720p on this TV, but its also the same on the kitchen TV which is 576i.


The thumbnail problem I mentioned is seen in this image of Homer's head, the image is 4:3 with black borders, but the width has been shrunk to 50% of what it should be. Not all shows have this issue, many of them display correctly, about 40% don't.


These are obviously photos because I can't take screenshots on an extender.
