      4. Why do my DVDs look fuzzy when playing on my HDTV?
        DVD quality is considered standard definition. The standard resolution of a DVD is 720×480. This resolution is significantly lower than the resolution of your HDTV. If you are concerned about the quality of DVD, we suggest trying one of our HD publishing options in ProShow like Blu-ray or an HD video file. For more information on this topic, click here.
      5. I’ve accidentally closed my slide list in ProShow and no longer see my slides across the bottom, how do I get this back?
        To restore the default window layout in ProShow, click Window from the menu bar at the top and select Default Window Layout. This should bring back the slide list and any other windows that might have been closed down in the main interface of ProShow.
