Hi,

I have a desktop PC i use as an HTPC. THe only monitor connected to it is a CRT 28" Widescreen TV. Using a Geforce GFX card and nVidia drivers i have found that the 720x480 resolution works best but i have found that some windows - such as editing a wifi connection - take up more space than is available and parts of the window end up overhanging the bottom of the screen and therefore are inaccessible (please correct me if that is not correct).

So i was thinking that Netbook Remix may be a possible solution. Can i install the UI from the UNR on my desktop installation? is it likely to solve my issue? or create others?

i use XBMC as my main media player but enjoy having access to Banshee when i feel the need - so am hoping these would still be fully functional.

any help or advice appreciated - or suggestions of other ways to solve my problem! :)

i have installed netbook remix via Ubuntu Software Manger.

All is good. The interface works well with the screen resolution but the windows overhanging the screen is still a problem.

I will however continue to use it! :P
