Question about Televison & Video
When I watch a movie (DVD WS) on this TV I get a pciture in a long rectangular box that fills up the screen width wise but not top and bottom (so a really wide screen). The funny thing is at the beginning of the movie when the standard langauge appears it does fill up the whole screen but when the movie starts it squishes down to a long rectangular view....
What do I need to do to fix this?
Check the aspect ratio of your widescreen DVD. I'll assume that your flat panel TV is widescreen, which would mean it has a ratio of 16:9. Some movies are even wider than that (i.e. 2.35:1), so it would be normal for you to see black bars at the top and bottom. Look for a WS DVD described as 16:9 (usually shown on bottom on back). This should fill your TV screen and not distort the image. If you still see the black bars, you will need to check your DVD menu settings for widescreen aspect, and supply more info on the DVD player and TV.
