Increasing the dvd size to fit the screen

We have the Magnovox TV with DVD build in. The movie is narrow and wide. We cannot make it fit the screen, therefore cannot see the whole movie at one time.

If the DVD is formatted in widescreen, there may be nothing you can do about it other than to purchase a fullscreen formatted copy of the movie.

The DVD movie has to be a "widescreen" version...

Check the cover of your DVD movies ... there may be one or more widescreen DVD's in your collection...

That should work.

What widescreen TV did you get? Brand / model.
If it is Samsung ... on the remote, press the "p.size" button (and wait) ... continue pressing and waiting after each press to see if the Samsung will adjust ... You may get a distorted pic ... like very short and very wide people.

What TV Brand / model??

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

My dvd player doesn't fill the screen on my Sharp


There are settings on most DVD players as well as TV's that allow you to adjust the type of display you want. Make sure both the DVD and TV are set to the same display type (usually either 16:9 for your type of TV). If that still does not fill the screen you will have to use the Zoom function on either your DVD or TV. This will cut off part of your movie, but should allow you to fill the screen. Most DVD movies will also allow you to choose widescreen or normal viewing from their menu. Again, you will lose a small part of either side of the movie, but at least you will fill your screen.

How to increase the size of the DVDS


I am guessing you are trying to fit a movie onto a blank DVD? You need to compress the video to fit into the 4.7gb available on the disc .... or use dual layer dvds.

A good program for compression is Elby's CloneDVD2.

To adjust screen size, choose the View Mode feature on the top right of the remote control. Zoom size is full screen for watching DVD movies, but sometimes there is still a thin black band due to the formatting of the dvd (unless you buy full screen versions) S. Stretch view mode is best for TV Movies.(usually fills whole screen) Occasionally there are TV movies which just don't respond to being stretched to fill the screen, it's just the way the signal is coming through . 1080i/p detects the resolution of the signal and displays the same number of pixels on the screen, but a 720p signal input will be viewed in full screen.

How do I set the DVD picture to Full Screen as opposed to Wide Screen?


That is the way the DVD makers intended it to be. The TV cannot be adjusted to change that if it is a widescreen or "letterbox" movie.
