    Adjust Overscan on Xbox One

    Is there a way to adjust the overscna on Emby Theater for the XBox One? The text and images are cut off by the edges of the screen. My TV does not have any options for adjusting image size, underscan or overscan. I could not find any options on the XBox either that would help. The Emby MCE add-on has these options and they work great, hoping that there is something similar you can help me find. Nick
  2. In addition to my other post. Just discovered that while the Main screen in Emby is now under-scanned severely on all four sides with borders the internal screens (Movies, Collections, etc) on Emby in WMC are severely over-scanned to the right side showing borders on the left. Can't use the over/underscan tool in Emby to correct it because the main screen is severely under-scanned on all four sides and the internal screens are over-scanned to the right. Fixing one with the tool throws the other out of line Help! Kevin
  3. UPDATE (4th Nov 2013): Sometimes you may have to edit the Windows Registry as WMC is configured with margins, which may lead to the "blue border" effect. If you are willing to edit the Windows Registry, here is what is needed, but this is done at your own risk ! The MediaBrowser3 Team accepts no liability if your Windows Registry is unusable after the edit. Run regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\MCE.PerUserSettings.Change the Margin Saved value to 1 and change all the other margins (top, bottom, left and right) to 0.This not only fixes the blue border seen on MBC but also fixes the issue with the margins of WMC being set in too far which is what makes TMT 5 not fill the screen when loaded as an external player from MB3 For XBOX issues, please see the following post. If after changing the registry you still see the "blue borders", please follow the instructions below. "Blue Borders" Media Browser has configurable settings to compensate for overscan issues. This only affects a small percentage of people. If you have no issues then do not change any of these settings. Overscan issues can be: GUI elements, such as buttons, shown partially offscreen A blue border visible at the screen edges The correct settings, depend on your display. This guide acts as a starting point for troublehsooting overscan issues. In the MBCommonXml.config file there are several settings that can be used. The config file can be found in “C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Classic\Configurations”. Open the MBCommonXml.config in notepad and look for the following settings: <OverScanScaling> <X>1</X> <Y>1</Y> <Z>1</Z> </OverScanScaling> <OverScanPadding> <Bottom>0</Bottom> <Left>0</Left> <Right>0</Right> <Top>0</Top> </OverScanPadding> Adjust the X, Y Z and Bottom, Left, Right, Top settings. Examples OVERSCAN Here you can see the config icon in the top right is nearly offscreen. To correct this you would increase the values of the Bottom,Left,Right,Top elements until the backdrop appears properly on your TV/Monitor. so for example you would change <OverScanPadding> <Bottom>0</Bottom> <Left>0</Left> <Right>0</Right> <Top>0</Top> </OverScanPadding> to <OverScanPadding> <Bottom>27</Bottom> <Left>47</Left> <Right>47</Right> <Top>27</Top> </OverScanPadding> UNDERSCAN In this image there is an unsightly blue border visible around the entire backdrop. To correct this you would decrease the Bottom, Left, Right, Top elements until the backdrop appears properly on your TV/Monitor. If the value is already ‘0’ for an element, you would use negative numbers. First, if seeing the blue underscan border you can also try going into Media Center Tasks > Settings > TV > Configure your TV or Monitor > Change type to Monitor or Projector. Selecting TV will give underscan borders. If the above did not rectify the issue change: <OverScanPadding> <Bottom>0</Bottom> <Left>0</Left> <Right>0</Right> <Top>0</Top> </OverScanPadding> to <OverScanPadding> <Bottom>-24</Bottom> <Left>-45</Left> <Right>-45</Right> <Top>-24</Top> </OverScanPadding> CORRECT This is an example of a properly adjusted image What the numbers mean When you adjust the OverScanPadding values in the MediaBrowserXml.config file, you can correct any overscan/underscan problems you are experiencing. As you increase the number in one of the borders (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) it will stretch that edge of the background towards the edge of your screen. If you increase the value too much, you may have controls drawn offscreen. In which case you would just lower the number for that particular edge. As you decrease the number, it will shrink the image away from that particular screen edge. You would do this if buttons or menus are drawn outside the screen edge.
  4. MBServer: Version 3.0.5081.21515 MBTheater: Not installed PC Server OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Codecs: Nothing other than installed with Win7 out of the box and MBServer Extender: HP MediaSmart Connect x280n TV: Toshiba Regza 32AV600 LCD Problem: Blue border surrounding all theme backgrounds at every level on HP x280n Extender. Solution: http://community.mediabrowser.tv/permalinks/7529/how-do-i-fix-the-blue-borders-on-an-extender Search: http://community.mediabrowser.tv/permalinks/7440/searching-for-a-definitive-answer-solution-for-borders-around-edges-of-extenders I searched the MB3 Community forum and spent several hours on this over the weekend with no resolution to the problem (ugly photos below). I decided to have a look in the MB2 Community Forum/Knowledge Base (KB) and SOLVED the problem in 15 minutes with the link above. A big THANK YOU to "rtbarn", "kentbrockman" and all others who put together the great MB2 KB guide. I would really hate to see this information go offline if the MB2/KB website is also going to disappear with the announcement of MB 2.x Support Sun-Set at EOY.
