    I use tv-out to watch some live streaming from certain sites namely gamespot video reviews and I cannot find an option to change the screen resolution.

    My desktop is 1280x1024 and the res I want for viewing on the TV is 1024x768.
    Windows Media Player Classic has the option to change but not 10 for some reason.

    Is there anyway to get IE6 to use MPC instead of WMP10 perhaps?

    Does your TV support 1024x768? I think you actually set that resolution in the display thingy in control panel. Under settings, there should appear two monitors. Click on the number two monitor and adjust away! Don't expect great results if you are using a regular CRT TV. They support a resolution of 640x480.

    Yea, 1024x768 shows the whole screen on my crt. 1280x1024 pixels (Current desktop) res is too big for it, hence the reason for me wanting to change wmp res to watch on the tv..
    When WMP is in full screen it displays same as the desktop. I want it to display the custom res of 1024x768.
    I get fantastic results with 1024x768 on my CRT.
