Has anyone reported the Slideshow clipping bug?

When I last posted this, I was told I must be doing something wrong. So, assuming I didn't quite understand what I was doing, I started over with some fres graphical images. Here's what I discovered:
When in Slideshow mode, Apple TV consistently, regardless of mode (720p, 1080i) will clip 36 pixels off the top AND 36 pixels of the bottom of any image it displays.
When parading by images, when you it is displaying the contents of a photo album, all appear 100% fine. When you select the "slide the images up in a layered display" they are all displayed 100%.
With the Ken Burns effect on OR off, Apple TV seems to reserving 72 pixels for possible photo/image sliding. Seems like a bug that if I turn off the Burns effect, it still reserves those 76 pixels.
I did extensive testing with Photoshop drawings as I could not figure out what was going on. It is extremely difficult to notice with a photo, unless you have a head shot, where you can see the top of a head (or some other image) right near the top of the photo. Tell me it's not clipped in slideshow view.

+If you check carefully you will notice that your movies do exactly the same thing on the tv, it isn't just something that affects photos or the tv+
Thanks for the suggestion. I take it, then, that in order to prove it is overscan I have to make a movie that will have measurable edges, bands of color, each (say) 8 pixels hight? And then create a movie in iMovieHD? And then play it on the AppleTV only to see, what? The clipping of 72 pixels due to overscan? It's possible... a lot of work, but worth it to know where the source of the clipping comes from.
The images I am using are not 6:4 photos, but are (typically much less than) 1280 wide and (exactly) 720 high. I already explained that I was using photoshop to create images that were 720 pixels high, each having a 40 pixel border of black on the top and the bottom. The width is inconsequential, as for these images, clipping the width is not important. I mentioned that all photographs are also clipped but, since most people use the Photo feature on appletv to view snapshots, they don't miss the content.
All of my images are cropped to 16:9; you crop yours using iPhoto, I create them in Photoshop. If I have time this weekend, I will test your overscan theory. If that's the case, I'll let you know, and then see if there are any adjustments for overscan on my set.
FYI, while overscan does indeed exist, almost all examples in the Wikipedia refer to horizontal overscan, resulting in horizontal, not vertical, clipping. You are correct in that it still exists. This has been a real learning experience for me. I had assumed that digital = "exact."
Live and learn.

I wonder how these images would look on a monitor, which uses underscan...

  • Has anyone found the mail app bug regarding "return" during typing?

    OS X 10.1.1
    During the composition of an email, I find the cursor dropping down to the next line without hitting the "return" key. It will drop down after an apostrophe and sometimes in the middle of a word. It will also drop down a line for every .... (4 periods) in a row. This is maddening. It is like it is formatting for the vertical iPhone screen randomly. This does not happen anywhere else but in the new Yosemite mail program. It was not a problem in Mavericks or Snow Leopard.

  • Has anyone experienced the mute switch / auto-rotate switch iOS bug on their ipad?

    Has anyone experienced the mute switch / auto-rotate switch iOS bug on their ipad?
    I have experienced this on iPad 1 as well as iPad 2.
    Basically, when you set the side switch to toggle screen orientation (or mute), after a period of use I will have either my sound cease to function or the ipad screen will not orient correctly.  This depends on what i have chosen the side switch to toggle.  I am not sure what causes it.  The time it takes for the problem to appear is inconsistent. Some say it is caused by third party applications.
    One can find numerous threads on here if you search for "sound on my ipad stopped working" or "orientation not working".  It appears to be the same problem. Fudging with the toggle switch settings can fix it (but it takes a weird order to get it out of its non functioning loop). 
    Here is a thread that addresses the sound issue:  https://discussions.apple.com/message/15263298#15263298

    Its only for notifications.. it is not for sound from videos or music!

  • Has anyone addressed the AUR haskell depends/makedepends fiasco?

    I've been searching around here, the web, and flyspray, and haven't found anything yet. Has anyone addressed the depends/makedepends fiasco with the Haskell PKGBUILD generated by the arch-haskell script?
    haskell-hdbc-sqlite3 > grep -i depends PKGBUILD
    makedepends=('ghc' 'haskell-cabal' 'haskell-hdbc>=2.1.0' 'haskell-utf8-string' 'sqlite3')
    depends=('ghc' 'haskell-cabal' 'haskell-hdbc>=2.1.0' 'haskell-utf8-string' 'sqlite3')
    Do all 1000+ PKGBUILD have this problem? Surely someone's looking into this, right?
    There are incorrect dependencies. There are 31 packages that depend on haskell-time of which a newer version is in GHC. The licenses are in non-standard places. Etc.
    *** I recommend that all packages created by arch-haskell get removed from the AUR. ***

    *** I recommend that all packages created by arch-haskell get removed from the AUR. ***
    Hello skottish.
    Thanks for the bug report. It would be better directed by reporting a bug to the Arch Haskell team, http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/arch-haskell
    Just some background, the Arch Haskell team is an group of about 12 developers, including 2 Arch core developers, engaged in supporting the Haskell programming langauge on Arch, bring the Haskell community to Arch, and advocating for Arch Linux. The effort is centered around the #archhaskell irc channel, the [email protected] mailing list, archhaskell.wordpress.com and the wiki.
    We're aware of the depends/makedepends issue. cabal2arch, the tool that packages Haskell software for Arch, used a seemingly incorrect understanding of the semantics of makdepends and depends. That has been fixed. Packages are being updated incrementally, and the situation as is causes no harm. The current semantics for Haskell packages wrt. dependencies are stated here: http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/arch-h … 00193.html
    Regarding haskell-time, the reason packages are using an older version of haskell-time is that Arch Linux supports the Haskell Platform http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/ which specifies which versions of libraries to support on a distro. We follow that. It is a policy decision.
    Regarding the licenses, they're placed where the package guide says. http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/arch-h … 00196.html
    I'm not sure what you mean by "Etc."  but if you have a bug report in the packaging system, please report it to the mailing list.

  • Has anyone got the QT stand alone installer to work?

    OK, Has anyone got the QT stand alone installer to work that has a problem getting IT6 to work also?
    You can look at my original thread and see what I've been through: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=262511&tstart=0
    and now am stuck with an old version of QT and no version of IT! Can't update iPod, can't do crap. How slow can Apple be to fixing whatever bug is in IT6?! It's obvious that alot of people are having trouble and many of us are having the exact same or similar problems. Apparently a call to support is no help.

    I didget QT stand alone to install. I had the error -3 message. I unistalled itunes and quicktime. Then I reinstalled using my orginal ipod disc. I then was asked to upgrade to ipod 6 or something. Which I did. Still got the error -3. Then I got the QT stand alone to install by it self and every thing works great now. There was some thing stating if I wanted to "Unistall QT for windows" I said yes. There were some error associated with removing "QT for Windows" during the install but after that it works great. It took something like 20 min. for it to download when it took itunes only 7 min. to download earlier.

  • Has anyone upgraded the Ironport ESA to 8.5.6-074 and had the issues of Raid status showing unknown?

    Has anyone upgraded the Ironport ESA to 8.5.6-074 and had the issues of Raid status showing unknown? After we upgraded our appliances we are having issues with our ESA appliances showing the RAID status as unknown. When we reported the issue to CISCO we were updated there were no issues reported at all. Could anyone please confirm if you have experienced the same issue.

  • Has anyone put the RAR Background Job Spool on a different server?

    We are on GRC 5.3 SP 13.
    Has anyone put the RAR Background Job Spool File Location (assigned in the Miscellaneous configuration section) on a server different than the one that the GRC Frontend/Java system is on?
    I currently have it assigned to a folder on the GRC server, but it is running out of space.  I am having a problem getting the users to delete old reports as they say they need to keep them for internal Audit controls.  They are also resisting downloading the reports (more work for them).  I have been told that we cannot easily increase the file space on the GRC server (would basically have to purchase more storage and rebuild the server).
    I was thinking about moving the folder over to our virtual storage area, were file size can be more easily expanded.  I haven't found any documentation that says the folder has to be on the GRC server, but I also haven't seen any examples of where it has been put on a different server.
    Has anyone done this, and did you run into any problems?

    Hello Bob,
    I got your point. Probably there's no recommendation about this, because the recomended practise is to delete or archive the spools as suggested in note : Note 1511027 - Periodic clean up of spool files
    If you have a requirement to keep these files "online", I think the option to save them to a network drive is fine. I haven't tried it for this specific scenario. You have to take into account:
    - Specific user to connect to FileServer
    - Availability of the FileServer. If the FS is down, the RAR job will cancel.
    - Performance. I mean, write to a local disk is not the same to write to a network drive. This point is very difficult to measure,   because it depends on a lot of things like network speed, server load, etc.
    Maybe someone has already implemented it and gives you more hints.

  • Has anyone resolved the whirring sound from the Macbook late 2008 Optical Drive Self-diagnostic yet?

    Has anyone resolved the whirring sound from the Macbook late 2008 Optical Drive Self-diagnostic yet?

    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    If the hard drive does not appear in the DU sidebar list then it has died and will have to be replaced. No need to proceed beyond this point.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install the Combo Updater for the version you prefer from support.apple.com/downloads/.

  • Has anyone used the mackeeper software?

    Has anyone used the mackeeper software?

    Short answer:  I don't recommend it, but it's not "a scam" or malware, per se.  If you use it, you may have some real performance issues.
    Me:  I was an actual MacKeeper user (paid version) for about two years.  What follows is my experience and conclusions.  I am not a paid reviewer, nor tech professional.  I am an educator with about 15 years of experience using Macs.  I am what most people would call a "prosumer," in that I know a good deal about my systerm, but am not a techie, anti-utility software zealot, etc.  I have no affiliation with Zeobit (manufacturer of MacKeeper) nor any of its competitors.
    I bought MacKeeper in 2011, and then upgraded last year.  I used it to remove junk files and duplicates, and experimented with the anti-virus software.  I didn't use most of the other features.
    The problem:  I am running a 2009 15" Macbook Pro 2.8GHZ Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 512GB HDD.  Over the past year, it has been having major performance issues.  Slowdowns, hangups, applications quitting and more were all becoming the norm.  I deleted duplicate files and ran MacKeeper a few times a month.  I also ran permissions repairs regularly (disk utility).  I looked for the cause of the slowdowns everywhere, from too many user accounts being open, to resource hogs.  I decided that MacKeeper's Anti-Virus software was just taking up too much RAM and CPU, so I disabled it.  I continued experiencing slowdowns and started monitoring my available RAM with a freeware app called Memory Clean.  It often reported that I had less than 500MB available, even with very light usage, application wise.  After "cleaning" memory, I could get my available RAM to about 1.5GB, max.  I struggled with these issues for a year or more, and was about ready to concede defeat and buy a new machine.  I figured my MBP was over four years old, and perhaps running Mountain Lion and normal wear/tear were just too much.
    This morning, I noticed that the biggest resource hog on my system was a process called "MacKeeper Helper." The process relaunches even when it is forced to quit.  It was consuming over 100MB of RAM and up to 99 percent of my CPU at times!  I also noticed a process called "anti-virus" that also could not be quit, and was consuming over 100MB of RAM itself.  I started researching how to kill these processes, and was introduced the the Great Online MacKeeper Controversy.  Here is what I learned:
    Some in the Mac community have pure hatred for this product (and some hate all like it).
    There were numerous user reports of it slowing down systems
    Zeobit seemed to be guilty of questionable ethics, particularly in its advertising.
    There was no way to stop MacKeeper Helper and Anti-Virus processes from running with deleting the entire application.
    I wasn't the only one annoyed by MacKeeper's system pop-ups, trying to sell me something I already bought.
    The software got good professional reviews, even from well-respected publications (e.g. MacWorld)
    It is often confused with Mac Defender, which WAS malware.  They two are not associated.
    The Decision:  After researching ways of fully uninstalling MacKeeper (and considering whether or not I should), I decided to try the uninstall instructions from the manufacturer.  It said that it would remove ALL traces of the application.  I also didn't want to get into too much Terminal work and manually deleting things, as some users suggested doing.  I followed the process (close app, drag to trash, enter password, click "uninstall").  I then ran a permissions repair and restarted.
    The Results:  I have been MacKeeper-free for about an hour as I write this. Put simply, my problems appear to be completely solved. MacKeeper Helper and Anti-Virus are gone.  Available RAM is now up to 2.75GB.  I have experienced no slowdowns or app crashes.  Even bootup appeared to be considerably faster.  Launching iPhoto with thousands of images now takes a few seconds instead of minutes.  Everything feels faster.  It's like I have my Mac back!  I was ready to admit defeat and dish out another $2500+ that I didn't have.  I now think that won't be necessary!
    What Should Yo Do? You'll find a lot of controversy out there between professional reviews, ethically dubious paid reviews, Zeobit's own defense through public statements, and Mac users themselves.  Some users like it, and swear up and down they are real people.  Others are extremely angry and hate the product with the passion of 1,000 burning suns.   All I can do is tell you my experience and make the following statement:
    The bottom line is that I would not install MacKeeper/buy MacKeeper on my Mac.  After investigating my own system's problems (which made iit nearly unusable) and concluding that MacKeeper might be the issue, I uninstalled it. Magically, all my issues went away.  So...I report, you decide.  Best of luck.

  • My apps will not download to ipad2 this is something that has just recently happened.Have switched the pad on and off holding buttons down but it makes no difference.Has anyone got the solution to this problem Thank you.

    My apps will not download to iPad 2 This is something that has just recently happened. Have tried re-booting but that makes no difference .
    Has anyone got the answer to this problem please or do I need to take it into an Apple store Thanking you.

    If all of that stuff checks out - and iTunes is telling you that the apps have been downloaded to the iPad - try this.
    Connect your iPad to your computer and launch iTunes. Right click on your iPad name on the left side of iTunes under devices and select Transfer Purchases from the pop up menu. Then sync with iTunes again. Don't eject the iPad yet. If you still don't see the apps on the iPad - click on the Apps Tab in the iTunes window on the right and see if they show up on any of the iPad screens. If they do - make sure that all of the apps are selected (checked) to sync - (checkmarks in the boxes next to the app names) - check to make sure that the Sync Apps heading is checked and as well and then sync again. You may have to click on Apply in the lower right corner of iTunes if the apps were not selected to sync.

  • Has anyone felt the heat from their monitor?

    I have a Penryn 2.8 GHz 24" iMac and I park my face fairly close to the screen (about 12 inches (30.5 cm) and I can feel the heat of the screen.
    I took temperature readings with a lab thermometer on 9 points distributed on a grid across the screen and it averages about 103 degrees F(39.4 C), ranging from 101 F (38.3 C) to 107 F (41.6 C). These measurements were taken while the computer was idle with just the screen saver running and the brightness at maximum.
    Has anyone felt the heat of their screen like this? Has anyone ever tried to measure it?
    Where does all the heat come from, is it all derived from the backlight or from the computer itself (107 is from the upper left and the 101 is from the lower right)?

    You might be interested in running SMCFanCOntrol to keep your temps down. I'd recommend keeping the HD under 50C and the Power Supply under 60C.

  • Has Anyone Found the New Version of the  iPod Radio Remote?

    Per iLounge, Apple released an updated ipod radio remote that has the most current version of Apple's ipod headphones as opposed to the shortened ones. I've checked on-line, Best Buy, Circuit City Compu World, Micro Center with no luck. I aslo tried the bricks-and-mortar Apple store...they looked at me like I had ten heads. Apparently they have the same sku as the old set.
    I posted a question to Apple Support, but no response yet. Has anyone found the new version anywhere?

    Thanks. I've submitted requests to Apple to find out if or when they will be shipping the new remote, but they have not responded within their promoted 24-hour timeframe. I'll try to order from Apple directly and hope I get the new headphones too!
