Unwanted fullscreen previews in N95 Gallery with TV-out

I make quite a lot of use of the TV output from my N95, paired with a Bluetooth keyboard (the Apple one). All is well most of the time, but the Gallery app has a couple of annoying quirks, and despite searching around I've been unable to find anyone else who has even encountered the same issues, let alone any idea of how to solve them.

The main problem for me, is that when using the Gallery's "thumbnail view" via the TV output, after 2-3 seconds the TV picture switches to a full-screen preview of the 'active' photo or video, whilst the N95 display shows the thumbnails, menu options and so on.

Personally, I find this behaviour annoying, and would rather that the TV picture was identical in content to what's on the N95 screen (except when videos are playing, when I'm happy to get the 640x480 enhanced picture). Does anyone know how to disable this "TV fullscreen preview" option in the Gallery, or is it just something I will have to live with?

My N95 is running firmware v31.0.0.17. I hope I've explained well enough what I mean, but please let me know if I need to clarify anything further.

Or use another gallery app, instead:


fullscreen, gallery, n95, previews, tvout, unwanted
