Question about Televison & Video
I have just purchased a PS3 80g and when I watch a Blu Ray movie it shows it in 16.9 and it has the bars on the top and bottom. I have a new Samsung ln52a650 series TV and a new 80gb PS3. I was under the impression that it would fill up the whole screen. there may be settings that would allow it to be displayed on the full screen that I haven't found. Help?
Although you have a wide-screen television, it is possible the video you are viewing was recorded in an even wider format. The bars should be smaller than if you were viewing the same DVD on a TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio, but will likely not disappear unless you view the DVD at a zoom setting. Many movies are shown in theaters at a wider ratio than 16:9, and the Blu-Ray disc has probably retained the entire picture rather than cropping it to fit your screen.
I recommend trying different viewing options that zoom in slightly. Be aware that this may cut off part of the picture from the left and right sides, but depending on your personal preference, you may not notice anything missing.
