    I had it happen once by accident, but I could never figure out how to get it back. I would be interested in this too.

    Unless you have a video that's shot in a vertical aspect ratio, I would think full-screen portrait mode would either distort or crop the image too much to be very useful.

    I have used TCPMP The Core Pocket Media Player and forced video into full screen portrait mode and it doesnt look to bad. I want to watch tv through Orb and dont want to have to hold my ppc in my hand, want it to sit in the desktop charger.

    Tools --> Settings --> Audio & Video --> Play video in full screen: switch from "never" to whatever your preference is.

    I don't think you understood me, I am trying to get full screen portrait mode, not full screen landscape mode.

    Sorry, I read the question too fast and missed the portrait part.

    Actually, when it happened to me, it was not "full screen" full screen, but rather the borders and buttons were removed and the picture went from one side to the other. The aspect ratio was still the same (or pretty close so you would not notice the difference that much), just the picture was larger. It was quite a bit bigger though and I wish I knew what happened to make it happen the first time. I have WMP set to always go to full screen (landscape), but one time it did not switch to landscape and stayed in portrait.

    TCPMP is your best bet dude. It plays everything beautifully. I recently ripped some of my DVD's and placed them on my SD card. The Family Guy movie, RoboCop, Jurassic Park, etc. They all look terrific in full screen mode that TCPMP provides.

    yes i agree tcpmp is the way to go, much better of a video player than wmp in my opinion. plus it will play formats like xvid/divx.

    I changed file associations in TCMP to open asx files, so I can watch my orb videos through TCMP. Now the videos wont play correctly. The video jumped ahead 24 minutes and then only played for a few seconds. Any suggestions for changing settings in TCMP? Do I need to download codecs for TCMP?
    Thank you all for your imput.

    I can't comment on the video problem, but I can tell you that TCPMP has all the latest and commonly used codecs already integrated.

    I play orb files without any problems.
