    When I watch video or live footie on P2P etc when I click for Full Screen view I still get the sound but only a white screen with no picture.

    Any ideas ?

    Actually I have never watched footy or any video that is in web in full screen, I have used full screen when its a DVD but always switch back, I don't like not having the bottom bar available to me, will be interesting to see if others have that problem also.

    What about hardware? Have you a vid card or using on board vid?

    Has this problem only started to happen recently or has it always happened and you where just wondering why? Does it work better on other resolutions?

    Just a few things to check I guess.

    Sometimes you can right click the video and uncheck hardware acceleration to fix this problem.
