I am using 13.1 as an HTPC, but also as a regular PC, with all use being done while seated on my couch.
When I’m using it as a regular PC I have it set for 720p resolution as that makes things a nice size for viewing from the couch.
I use VLC player, and sometimes Kaffeine, to watch movies that are 1080p resolution. Unfortunately, the resolution won’t change to 1080p automatically so if I don’t do that manually using the AMD CCC then it arrives at my receiver as 720p and gets upscaled from there to 1080p.
I would like to know if, or how, I can configure things so that the resolution will automatically change to 1080p when I am playing a movie at that resolution. I also have some video files that are 720p so I would like the resolution to stay at 720p for those.
Perhaps the approach would be to set CCC to 1080p and use a setting in KDE to display at 720p? I don’t know if there is such a setting but I’m just guessing.
I am running a Radeon 7800 series card with both video and audio carried on the HDMI cable to my receiver. I have managed to get DTS 5.1 audio over the HDMI cable and I can also get 1080p video, but my problem is as stated above.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
