Required Screen Resolution

Question

Hi Folks. Back to Roxio community after a long absence due to health. Last time was using EMC 6! I think the troubles with the Video module drove me to the nut house.

 

I now have EMC 9 and souped up my new desktop Presario P4 memory to 2GB RAM and a new video card with 256 MG RAM. Prior to loading EMC 9, I had set my new 21" flat screen monitor to 1280 X 720 res. at 32 bit. BUT...when launching Media Manager, it kicks me out saying I need to set monitor to a minimum of 1024 X 768 and minimum of 16 bit. Mine setting should work, no? When I reset it to the lower 1024x768, Media Manager works but the screen is stretched out way to far to do realistic rendering!

 

Does anyone have any advice or had similar experience in getting around this snafu? I was so excited about getting this fired up, with so many hopes and DVD projects riding on this new version, AS WELL AS assuming many of the kinks from years ago have been worked out in this new version. This doesn't give me a good feeling to be stopped so early, but I will continue to think positively.

 

Thanks!

Real easy to get around. Set your resolution to the minimum requirements. The 720 that you had set, doesn't meet that minimum resoulution. See if you can set yours to 1280x1024 or whatever is the next one down.

Bob, you are looking only at the upper number; you have to look at both. Your 720 is lower than the 768 required. Try something like 1280 by 960 or 1280 by 1024. Both are "squarer"

Thanks friends. That sure did it. And I sure feel silly. It's amazing how quickly time off from the computer slows one's common sense to the littlest things. I think from past experience, I have become conditioned to think the worst instead of hoping for the best ( easiest ) solution. This is a good lesson for me, as I re-acquaint myself with this newer EMC: Approach with common sense.

 

Peace and blessings.

What was the final resolution that you set, to make it work?
