I would need more information in order to provide further assistance:
Please copy-paste or attach the Graphics report generated within the Intel Graphics Control Panel.
Also, the DirectX* diagnostic report: click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
I have the same issue. Why does 1024x768 have the ability to maintain aspect ratio, while other resolutions do not?
I went through all the available resolutions, and only 1024x768 and 1920x1080 (native) can maintain aspect ratios.
I bought the $149 compute stick today at Fry's Electronics (2GB RAM/32 GB storage), and I've fully updated Windows, the compute stick BIOS & firmware, and I've installed the latest driver package, including the 7/1/2015 graphics driver.
Please have one of the lower resolution 16:9 aspect ratios support maintain aspect ratio. Thanks.
Thank you for the reports I’ll send this over to the engineers.
Hi hansb_intel, thanks for replying.
I did some more driver and firmware updates yesterday, and now I see that 1280x720 supports the 'maintain aspect ratio' setting. That's progress!
However, Windows 8's Metro apps require a minimum of 768 pixels high in order to run. That means I can't use my Metro apps anymore.
That's definitely not good-- if I want to use Metro apps, then I have to switch back to 1024x768. That's more of a workaround rather than a solution.
What would really make me happy is if 1366x768 supported 'maintain aspect ratio'--
That way, I can run Windows in widescreen with no black bars on the side, AND use Metro apps.
That would make me a happy camper. I'm glad I got the compute stick-- it's a nifty little device.
I'm not done running benchmarks on it, but so far, I'm having a lot of fun with it.
