Could you provide more information? What do you mean when you say, "closing?" Do you mean there is a black band around the picture? If so that means the original picture is recorded at a lower pixel density than your TV will display.
In the past most TV program signals provided a picture dimensions (in computer standards) very roughly 600 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall. What this means is that a picture of that pixel size will display as a small, squarish image slightly wider than it is tall on a (now) standard 1080p LCD television--which produces an image 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
That would be nearly unwatchable (picture too small) except for the fact that most TVs compensate for the relatively small size of "standard definition TV (SD TV, as opposed to HDTV) by enlarging the image so that the top and bottom edges of the picture touch the top and bottom of the TV screen. This will leave black bands on either side of the picture. Some LCD TVs will automatically stretch BOTH dimensions of the image, which yields a distorted, "sqaushed" image.
All my comments above apply to both standard LCD and 3D-LCD TVs, by the way.

My 47 inch vizio 3dtv has issues with the 3d. There are two images and neither are in 3d. The glasses don't work.


You have to put the TV into 3D mode to view it by pressing the 3D button on the remote. Before you press that button, look at the screen... if you see two images side by side, then you would choose SBS... if the images are one on top of the other, then it is the over/under mode, or with Vizio,Top/Bottom option which is the "TB" icon. Once you have chosen this, the screen will inform you to put on your 3D Glasses.

Need to activate dvdxcopy gold


this software in my own experience is not very user friendly. I recommend getting on a torrent site and trying different DVD software instead actually. Unless you purchased a key, then click on help, and there you should be able to enter your key code to activate in the 'About' section or Register.
