  • I installed a new DVD-ROM drive and NVDVD is not responding. What is happening?
    When installing a brand new DVD-ROM drive into an existing system you must select the DVD region for the DVD-ROM drive before playing DVD movies. Browse to the Windows System Properties > Hardware > Device Manager and select the DVD-ROM drive properties and select the region for your movies.

    Alternatively you can reboot your PC and Windows will assign a default region for your DVD-ROM drive and you will have no problems.

  • When I output NVDVD to a TV, why are there black borders around the video?
    This problem is known as "underscanning". Underscan is when a video signal does not reach the edges of your monitor and leaves a black boarder around the image. Normal broadcast TV content is "overscanned," meaning the image bleeds/scans past the edges of the screen so it fills the entire monitor. When you output your PC's content to a TV, by default it underscans and the black border appears.

    To eliminate this effect, use the TV Out property page found in the NVIDIA display driver control panel. The setting to adjust is called "Screen Size." The NVDVD's TV Overcsan Correction - found on Video property page - helps home theatre PC users show NVDVD full screen controls when displaying letterbox content on anamorphic widescreen projectors. In full-screen mode, if the NVDVD controls are hidden off the edge of the screen because of TV overscan, you can adjust the overscan to bring the controls back into view.
