We just got our hands on one of the new Intel Compute Sticks with the Windows 8.1 build. 

We were able to install the new Rise Vision App with out issue. Runs on start up, no problem!
BUT....while the resolution on the panel is reading 1920x1080, in Chrome it is being scaled to 1280x720.

I've searched the internet/forums and have yet to find a solution to this. 

I did find the "DisplayInfo Sample" and confirmed that Chrome is scaling it down to 1280x720. 
I'm beginning to think this might be an issue with the 32bit version of chrome. 
I installed the 64bit version on a 64bit machine and confirmed resolution of 1920x1080. 

We also when ahead and installed the Rise Vision Player on the Intel Stick, and content was fine. 1920x1080. 

Has anyone else been able to get this unit running @ 1920x1080 using the Rise Vision Chrome App?

In Windows, you need to change a setting in the "Display" window. 
You need to change the "size of the text and other items" to "Smaller"
Some reason our Intel Compute defaulted to "Larger". (And was listed as the Recommended setting)

After changing the setting to smaller, Logged out of windows and logged back in. 

Resolution setting never changed, but now the Icons are smaller, and Chrome displays in 1920x1080.

Thanks for the followup. We don't have any of these Compute Sticks in house to test on, so I'm glad you were able to resolve this!

How's the performance on these sticks?  Have you tried any video clips?  I have one in my Amazon cart as I was going to experiment with them.  Are you pleased with the performance and packaging?

If you are using the latest gen of the stick, YouTube seems pretty good so far with good audio. I just received our first one yesterday. But with so many glitches in RiseVision itself and some of the apps it is hard to tell what is a Stick problem and what is a RiseVision problem. Hopefully things will settle down soon.

Helped me too, I'm trialling a "Bauhn" mini PC with windows 8.1 with Bing. Working well now.
