One of my Rasp Pi displays is now only rendering half the size of the TV monitor screen. When I view the Resolution setting of the device under DISPLAYS within the RiseVision Web UI, it shows 945x1060, however it should be showing at 1920x1080. How can I resolve this? Attached is a picture of the display. The screen is only showing half the RV slide, the other half of monitor is showing the raspian desktop...This issue has not every happened before...Any idea how I can resolve this?

Hi there,

Take a look at this article where we show you how to set the proper resolution on your presentation and display.

Let me know if this helps!

Thanks for the quick replay..Again, we are using a Raspberry Pi...All of our presentation used on display is set to 1920x1080.....Also, the Pi shows the correct resolution of the raspian OS on the TV, it is just that the Slides are only displaying on the left side of the TV, using only 50% of the available TV display......

I saw another thread pop up for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with similar issue about the half screen and had some additional questions also. I'll add them below:

- What resolution is the Display running?
- Is this occurring with other applications that you have? For example are you able to open another application (i.e. Firefox or Chrome), drag around desktop, maximize it to fill screen etc.
- What Window Manager or desktop environment are you currently using? We have found certain WMs (like flwm) may not handle full screen well.
- Do you have other applications running in process also?
- Do you have any other plugins running that could cause windows to form in a half window tile on the screen?

On another note, we have a Community supported Riseberry thread, if you can also give notice to the followers/users in that thread about this, they may also be able to help out with your query. Please note that Raspberry Pi is not one of our supported hardware devices.
