    I'm loosing a lot of pixels on homebrews (and certainly games) all around the edge of the screen. everything above that red line is not visible on my TV.

    (I'm lazy, I would have liked USBgecko logs to copy/paste hehe)

    These values are hardcoded in libogc for each video mode, why not just explain why you need them?

    Probably would help if someone actually ran it in PAL mode (576i) then, which nobody has so far.

    That explains it. I was very confused.

    I know we haven't exactly gotten along in the past, but I'd like to thank you for that.

    50Hz (576i) 4:3
    50Hz (576i) 16:9
    60hz (480i) 4:3
    60hz (480i) 16:9
    EDTV/HDTV (480p) 4:3
    EDTV/HDTV (480p) 16:9

    4:3 and 16:9 always share the same values

    Are you sure about your last values (in 480p) ?

    You shouldn't have viHeight != xfbHeight and also normally you have viHeight + 2*viYOrigin = MAX_HEIGHT (480 or 574)

    viHeight should be 448, just like other 60hz modes; This value is the recommended value for NTSC/PAL60 overscan

    Sure, those values can be changed using VIDEO_Configure in libogc but if you are manually reconfiguring them, I don't see the point of asking for displayed values, and if you need default values, better have a look in libogc sourcecode (it's in video_types.h and video.c I think)

    I have searched for a long time, but never could find them. If you find them, please tell me where.

    yes, I'm sure about the values, I checked them twice, and it's the same as the previous user's reports on their 480p.

    http://devkitpro.svn.sourceforge.net/viewv...amp;view=markup

    Modes are defined at the very beginning of this file as GRXModeObj structures.

    Default modes, as returned by VIDEO_GetPreferredMode (same file), depends on System Menu settings:

    PAL (574i): TVPal528IntDf
    PAL60 (480i): TVEurgb60Hz480IntDf
    MPAL (480i): TVMpal480IntDf
    NTSC (480i): TVNtsc480IntDf
    Progressive (480p): TVNtsc480Prog (only when component cable is detected)

    Since the values people get are not default values, I guess video mode was indeed reconfigured for some odd reason (using VIDEO_Configure) or there is something wrong with the code reading and displaying those values.

    Anyway, viHeight returned value in progressive mode is not valid and I'm not sure how video hardware would react to this, it probably ignores user setting in this case and uses same value as xfbHeight instead (which is recommended setting)

    If you had given the source code (or better, the goal) of this dol, I'm sure this could be more helpful
