Letter box picture when viewing blue ray discs on Sony BR player
We recently bought a Sony Blue Ray player and I believe that it is the Costco version of the Sony350. To date, every Blue Ray movie which we have viewed, including the Pirates of the Caribbean series, has been in letter box. Is there a way to fill our tv screen. We are using an HDMI with a DVI adaptor to connect the player to the television.
Re: Letter box picture when viewing blue ray discs on...
All blu-ray movies are in Widescreen format. So your tv converts the picture to make it look like letterbox. There will be some movies that will have those little black bars at the bottom. There will be some movies that don't. There is nothing to worry about it is normall.

This is due to a faulty optics lens or mech assembly, the laser used for normal DVS's are red but when Blue ray is inserted the laster uses blue light or blue laser, you may have a defective laser.
you need to plug your blue ray into the internet and download the latest software for your player. i had a problem with terminator salvation downloaded the new version for my player and athough it took 20 mins to download via a lan cable from my player to my wireless hub it now works fine wooohooo i just hope its not a **** film, its just started
Ok EVERYONE. After emailing Sony Pictures, I took the second copy back to Fred Meyers put it in their active BluRay display player. I have a Sony BDP-S300 right at a year from purchase, they had a Sony BDP-S350 and my disk that did not work - played fine even past the eagle. I came home Downloaded and installed a Firmware update. Now my copy of Hancock that did not work works fine.. The simple answer is Update your Firmware
i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.
