Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: Fitting to widescreen tv

Sounds like you're duplicating your surface screen to your TV.  Can't you extend it instead?  When you duplicate it, you're just showing the same thing on both the surface display and the TV.  If you extend it, you have two displays: your surface and your TV, and each displays a different desktop.  Then you should be able to utilize the true resolution of each display.  Right-click on the desktop and select "Display settings".  Not sure exactly the setting in there because my win10 laptop has no external display connected to it at the moment.  On my win7 desktop, there's a selection called "Multiple displays" which has options "Duplicate these displays", "Extend these displays", "Show desktop only on 1" and "Show desktop only on 2".  Mine is set to "Extend these displays", since I have two monitors.  If I set it to "Duplicate these displays" it shows the same thing on both monitors.

HDMI Cable
Running anything from this surface to the tv does not utilize the entire tv. This is not a TD issue, i was just wondering if there is a way to make the app it utilize the entire screen even though the source is 3:2.

Suggestions / Re: Countdown to Date/Time

I try to never think of a question as a complaint.  To me they are all opportunities to improve the application.

In this case, it gives me the opportunity to see how someone might use the countdown feature, and revisit how it works and why I made the decisions I made regarding it.  Today, I believe if a countdown is in progress when a tournament is saved, then when the tournament is later loaded, the countdown is simply canceled and the user will have to reconfigure and start a countdown if they wish.  Thinking more about this, it doesn't have to be this way.  This situation can be handled intelligently.  If a tournament is saved while in progress, when the tournament is later loaded, it continues right where it left off with the only change being the clock will be paused upon loading.  We can apply the same logic to a countdown.  If the countdown is for a specific length of time, we do the same thing: start where we left off with the countdown clock paused.  If the countdown is to a specific date/time, we allow the countdown to continue if the date/time is in the future (since this type of countdown can't be paused), or cancel the countdown (perhaps with a notification to the user) if the date/time is in the past.

There's no technical reason to allow only today/tomorrow, but it is more convenient as I believe this is how most countdowns are configured.  But we could add a custom option to allow for any future date/time.

No plans to leave the tourney running for 3 days "waiting" for it to start. I was just used to a different (inferior) app where I would set the date/time of the tourney and all the variables, close the app and forget about it until I opened it getting ready.
Since a date & time were already set it would automatically start the tourney when it reached the start time.

Not a big deal. TD has way more functions tied to this so I understand why you have it the way you have it. No Complaints, just asking.
I'll just get used to setting a countdown once I open the app getting ready for a tourney to start.

How is your Surface connected to the TV?  When you put another app on that display, does it fill the TV screen or are there also black bars?

This info may be posted elsewhere but all I could find was really old threads on the topic.
I have a Surface Pro laptop with 3:2 ratio, when I display TD on a widescreen tv with 16:9 ratio I end up with black bars on the left & right of the screen.
I have an older laptop that IS widescreen and the widescreen tv screen is filled 100% using it. I would prefer to use the newer Surface Laptop.
Is there is simple fix for this or is it just the way it is using a source that is not widescreen?

Help Me / Re: Load tournament and restore buttons ignore me

Sorry a couple more questions. If I have files saved in 3.3 and I have a league table containing these files, whilst I may not be able to open them will the data still be recognised when calculating league positions.

Version 3.4.3 and 3.7 can open files saved in earlier versions.  So if you use 3.4.3 or 3.7, you should have no trouble opening any of your existing saves or data files.

Thanks Corey, would I have to buy a new license or would my current one work please.

A version 3 license will work with any version beginning with 3 (3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.7, etc).
