    Projected image fine until playing DVD on full screen

    I'm having an odd issue with a Casio projector hooked up to a SMARTboard via a PC and video splitter.

    The projected image is fine, until you try and play a DVD on full screen and then it goes black. Have tried running it through Windows media player and Interactual player and the same thing happens. When you play the DVD within a media player window and not full screen, it's fine.

    Does it do that on the monitor without the splitter?

    Turn hardware acceleration down on the graphics hardware.

    Didn't get a chance to have a look in the end .... kid dropped a netbook which I ended up looking at instead!

    I'm back in that particular school after half-term, so I'll try connecting it up direct without the splitter and see what happens.

    I know there was some decorating done in the summer holidays in that classroom so everything got unplugged and then reconnected. It's one of those "well this used to work before the summer and now it doesn't" issues! I checked all the cabling, connections etc and it all seemed sound so I'll have to tinker a bit more with it.
