Why is the picture so small?

Posted on March 3, 2011

Technically the resolution of the transmission is limited to 320×240. DSTV have chosen to artificially restrict the size of the picture on-screen to double this resolution. It gives you a picture that takes up about a quarter of the size of a normal laptop screen. There is an unofficial patch to work around this. (See How do I make the picture larger).

While the application allows a zoomed in view, it just doubles the pixels. There is no full screen mode available. You can use the windows magnifier to zoom in further but it looks terrible. Better just to watch in the smaller window and enjoy it for what it is – a mobile service.
