Question about Dynex 32 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
I bought a wide screen lcd tv. I dont understand why when i play a wide screen movie that i still see black at the top and bottom? my tv is a dynex 32" lcd tv " dx-lcd32-09" thanks......
Hi pooing stone,
You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.
This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater. While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.
If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying. Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.
FYI: It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.
