    i have a toshiba 17 widescreen laptop with MCE factory
    installed. the problem is when i want to watch TV it will
    not display in the 16:9 ratio. it seems to be stuck in the
    4:3 and as a result i cant fully use my screen i get the 2
    black bars on the side. is there a way to change this so
    that i may watch TV in the widescreen 16:9 ratio or am i
    just screwed and have a useless widescreen laptop?? Please
    HELP thanks

    Is the DVD you bought stating Widescreen Edition? if not, then you have the
    Home Edition of the movie or the 4:3 format movie...

    also you need to be playing in the Intervideo WinDVD software for the movie
    to work correctly with MCE on a Tashiba... if you have set up another DVD
    player software, then you need to uninstall it.. launch Win DVD, set the
    options for Widescreen when the movie is playing.. exit the Win DVD
    software, then launch MCE.. however, you don't get to use the Win DVD
    enhancements like SRS or Dolby Digital in MCE or slow motion or screen
    capture, or almost 60 % of the WinDVD features.. I use MCE for TV only so I
    can record it and burn to DVD.. other than that, for music, I use media
    Player 9 software so i can use the Graphic EQ, Fade in, SRS, and the
    Visualizations.. U use MCE for My Pictures sometimes when i show pics to
    friends, however, when viewing to edit, I first use the Picture Viewer built
    in XP then send them to Paintshop Pro Anaversary Edition for editing....

    it all depends on how you choose to use the programs you have installed...
    and what you want to hear.. to me MCE is strictly for the TV Tuner and
    showing pictures off...

    the rest i do them manually, like movies, I set up the sound I want during
    the FBI warning, take a seat, then enjoy....

  5. Try pressing the More Info button on the remote and select Zoom. Note: This
    buttone is called details on HP remotes.

    does your P25-S607 still function? Mine has always suffered from not preventing itself from running hot.

    I have since installed SuSe linux on it... massive upgrade ;)

    I'll never buy another Toshiba: ZERO customer service follow through
