Setting screen resolution during first startup
« on: September 22, 2007, 10:11:50 am »
When I try to set the screen resolution at the first page in th AV Wizard the screen zooms when I set higher resolutions. I got a 1080p television but only the 640x480 setting is ok if I want to be able to watch entire screen.

Right now I'm using my VGA cable, with HTMI the GUI wont start at all...

See: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Display_Drivers for manual setup of the display.

Oh, thanx! Just another thing... am I supposed to update drivers before I install MCE or after? Or does'nt it matter?

LMCE will overwrite the settings on install, so it's best to do it afterwards I think.  You might want to make a backup of the xorg.conf file before installing LMCE, it's nice to have some sort of reference.
