dwAvailableModes

Unsigned long integer that specifies the modes that are available.

This member is valid only when dwCommand is VP_COMMAND_GET, and can contain any combination of the values specified for dwMode.

Unsigned long integer that specifies the TV standards that are available.

This member is valid only when dwCommand is VP_COMMAND_GET, and can contain any combination of the values specified for dwTVStandard.

dwFlickerFilter

Unsigned long integer that specifies the flicker reduction provided by the hardware.

This value is specified in tenths of a percent, from 0 to 1,000, where 0 is no flicker reduction and 1,000 is maximum flicker reduction.

This member is valid when dwCommand is either VP_COMMAND_GET or VP_COMMAND_SET.

dwOverScanX

dwCPKey

Unsigned long integer that specifies the copy protection key returned if dwCPCommand is set to VP_CP_CMD_ACTIVATE.

An application that calls ChangeDisplaySettingsEx must set this key when the dwCPCommand member is either VP_CP_CMD_DEACTIVATE or VP_CP_CMD_CHANGE.

If the application sets an incorrect key, the driver must not change the current copy protection settings.

This member is valid only when dwCommand is VP_COMMAND_SET.
