Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System

Want to have full screen while watching movie in 1080p quality

Gday, just wondering if you can help me with a problem I'm having with my new entertainment set up. I have a Samsung series 6 LCD 40'' television hooked up to a new Panasonic sc-pt865 home theatre system. I watched a DVD for the first time on this system the other night and while watching it in 1080p quality I couldnt get a full screen, just screen with a black band top and bottom of the picture, like you were in the very very back row of a cinema. Is there anything I can do to get the picture to fill up the screen while watching in 1080p?

Hi there
I'm afraid a lot of movies come with closed captions or in letterbox format, there is nothing wrong with the TV and you will still be able to have the full HD experience.
It all depends on the DVD that you are watching, to varify this try some different DVD movies in the player and you will notice the screen size changes from film to film.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya

Unfortunately a lot of DVDs or movies are not exactly 16:9. Almost all are more wide than this and you will get the black bars if you don't want to stretch the image. You can stretch the picture to fill by pushing "P-Size" on the samsung tv remote, but you will be cutting off parts of the picture. The aspect is decided by the movie director and is typically not 16:9. ie - star wars is very very wide and you have to cut something off to fill the screen, or dramatically stretch the picture

You can Zoom picture, option available in TV . Actually movie design is 16:9 and it would best fit in wide-screen TVs.

Hi axematt

I assume you were watching a widescreen movie. This is normal and you can either zoom in on the picture with the dvd player menu or the tv also has modes such as wide, full screen, Cinema, ect. that you can switch through.

let me know if you have any other questions with this
