View wedding DVD in standart format on HD wide screen LG televsio

I have just had a wedding DVD done. The problem is, it is in standard format and viewing it on my widescreen HD television makes us all appear short and fat, the quality appears poor and stretched. The supplier is willing to change it to wide screen, but says it will have a black space top and bottom. Will this fix the quality and stretching problem?
They also suggest we keep the standard format and adjust the controls on our LG televison. Would this be a better solution? If so, what are we adjusting?
This is a big problem, because our wedding day is very importnat to us and we want to be able to view it with the best quality possible.

Thanks,
Lorna

Wide screen will solve the stretching of the picture and if you have the black bars try to zoom and then check the image ,And your standard video, go the picture menu and then choose Advanced and then choose cinema 3:2 ratio, even this not satisfactory then change aspect ration in the tv and check in which the images are good ..


Good luck...

Set your TV picture format to 4:3.

You find this settings in TV picture menu.

    If the supplier adapts the movie to 16:9 (widescreen) you will have the black spaces at the sides of the picture the same as if you set your TV to 4:3 (squared picture). Additionally you wont be able to see this on a traditional squared display (4:3) TV.

    The best solution is setting your TV to 4:3 or auto mode when you want to watch this movie, and bear the two bands at the sides of the picture.

    On next ocasion ( a baby maybe?) remember to set the camera to widescreen/16:9 when you thake the shot, this format is more versatile on nowadays TVs.

    Set TV to 16:9 or Auto.

The aspect ratio on the HD channels are full screen - which is correct. However all other channels have the incorrect aspect ratio. (reduced size) A solution please???


Many times HD channels will come in more clear, but with a smaller picture or widescreen view. There should be a button on your remote called 'wide' or 'zoom' and it will let you adjust the size on the fly. If you adjust the view while watching an HD channel, and you switch to a standard channel, you will have to change the ratio back.

Why my regular dvd player with widescreen movies does not fill my hd tv ?


ok, There are 2 aspect ratio's for tv/movies. Widescreen Standard
If you have a Widescreen TV, Widescreen formatted dvd's will fill the hole screen, Standard formatted dvd's will not fill the whole screen
if you have a Standard TV, Standard formatted dvd's will fill the whole screen, Widescreen formatted dvd's will not fill the whole screen
this is normal, check to see the format of the dvd you are trying to use.

Dvd's aren't fitting my screen, the sides and top/bottom is being cut of. I've tried the display menu, zoom, and making it widescreen, and it doesn't work.


Are you playing wide-screen movies on a 4x3=1.33:1 (standard=SD) TV? DVD output by default is SD. Even 16x9=1.78:1 (HD) movies with have top and bottom bars. Many "wide-screen" DVDs are squeezed horizontally so that you have to stretch them. Many theatrical releases are up to 2.7:1 or so. Side bars indicate you have the DVD output set for 4x3 and your TV is HD-like. There are usually controls for the screen format on HD TVs--no controls on SD TV. Hey, early movies were 1:1--take them side bars. More on aspect ratio (AR) in Wiki, I bet. With letterbox of SD you can get "pillar box" with black on all 4 side. Get a better source and/or choose a different AR. -Ken

Unable to view fullscreen in hdtv


That is the way HDTV is viewed on many screens as a wide fromat. So you will get top and bottom non-viewable areas. It is the width that gives the full imagery for that format. To have the screen filled you would get a standard 4:3 format like standard TV. HD is a 16:9 format so it is much wider.
