PIPO X8 Screen res

Postby G1LWX » Sat Jan 14, 2017 3:48 pm

Hi all
I have just obtained a second hand PIPO X8 with windows 10 installed.
The problem is that I cannot set the screen resolution for tuitoune software
the max size is 800 x 1280 and at best part of the display is missing.
Is there a software update that I can use I have tried a few but i'm not
having any success.

It should work - are you using Minitioune 0.4c or Minitioune V0.5a ?

Hi there
I am using version 0.5a and also tried 4c
the rh side of the tuitoune monitor is missing
the screen res needs increasing but it only goes to 800 x 1280

Hello,
I suppose that you have applied a zoom factor to your PIPO display.

Minitioune software, in Expert mode takes 1086 x768 pixels so can been seen completely with a PIPO X8.(1280 x 800)

Mike,
as Jean-Pierre says display is zoomed in. Microsoft set default zoom to 125% in Millenium update. Goto start, settings, system, display, and drag the slider under "change the size of text, apps...."all the way to the left to restore to 100%.
