 My games look great on the Dell FP 2001 with the X2VGA, but with some 480p games they do not fill the screen and instead display in square in the middle almost filling the screen.  Is this normal for this setup?  Games doing it so far are ESPN NHL 2K5, and Burnout 3.  Crimson Skies and Mech Assault fill the screen perfectly.

Any ideas?

 Thanks.  That does help a bit, but the games now only have a little at the top and bottom that doesn't fill.  Not nearly as distracting.

Under image setting on the monitor what do you guys have the scaling set to (1:1, Aspect or Fill) ?

 If I didn't state it clearly enough before, here it is again:

The Dell 2001FP LCD monitor will not display the X2VGA/X2VGA+ 480i "Easy View".

You'll either have to use a regular "Tube" Crt to set up your dashboard, or hex edit your dashboard file to display in 480p.

 Cheers! i just figured that out hehe. Ive changed it now, looks quite nice but not as great as i was expecting sad.gif. I tried sould caliber in 720p but its all squished into like a vertical rectangle, and its small when put in 1:1 or aspect. Any ideas?

 You can try auto adjust, but I just disabled 720p.  I'd rather have Soul Calibur II full screen in decent resolution, than narrow screen in high resolution.

 hey catgut, can i ask what dip swtich settings you have? Because mine still doesnt look very good, especially not up to par with normal RGB on a tv! Is this just because of the interpolation? On the occasion that XBMC plays the dvd at 720p however it looks very nice.

 I'll have to check my switch settings when I get home.

I'm starting to wonder if I'm the only peep out there who prefers sharpness to anti-aliasing.... unsure.gif

 im not complaining about the shaprness vs AA, becuase for me the sharpness just isnt there. It looked very good on my CRT at 480p but i think its just the amount of interpolation the 200fp has to do to get down to 640x480 is really downgrading the picture quality. i just tried crash nitro kart in 720p and it looked very nice, shame not more games upport this better res. Especially fifa and halo/burnout 3 which im playing a lot at the moment.
