Can I zoom TV Output *just* vertically?

    Hi, using the NVIDIA tasktray icon, I can go to TV Output and enlarge the
    display sent to my secondary display (TV set). However, what I can't do is
    just enlarge vertically - it does it equally both vertically and
    horizontally. ATI can do this. I'm surprised NVIDIA can't, or am I wrong?

    The zoom feature is really an overscan option, not a true zoom or axis
    dependent stretch like your monitor can do. Overscan is used in all
    TV's normally - usually somewhere around 10% of the image is cropped
    behind the black bars at the far edges of the glass.

    Are there any other programs that will let me do true vertical enlargement -
    the image on my TV is slightly too small vertically.

    I haven't played around with TVTool in a while, but I think it might. I
    at least remember several positioning controls being present. www.tvtool.de

    Hmm, just tried it. Interesting program. Sadly it doesn't seem to have
    TV-out image resizing, only app resizing.

    Still, it let me switch Media Center to 16:9 window on a 4:3 desktop which
    was something!
