Question about Pioneer DV-383S DVD Player
I have my DV-383S hooked up to the Component Video of my Phillips Widescreen HD ready TV. Whenever I try to watch a a pre-recorded DVD I get the bars on top and bottom even though the Player is set for this. When I try to change the TV's resolution I find that I am locked and can only be in Widescreen even though there are many settings normally ie. 16x9 14x9 superzoom and 4x3. I have checked the DVDs as well and find that this happens on both 2.35: and 1.85:1.
HI there it sounds like your tv is the problem maybe. The format of the pre recorded dvd May be in a different region code. Or the DVD player settings my let you change them. I have has this happen with my phillips HD with just normal DVDs. So It is possible that the tv and the DVD player are the problem than.
Try the to the menu in the dvd player (without the dvd in the DRIVE) and access the setings from there. IT should let you change the fomat in there also.
Thank You I sure Hope this helps

Generally most dvd's ar formated in 2 ways either wide screen or standard. usually the options on the tv can compansate for each format however certain dvd's if they are copied are are burned from a computer don't have the same binary code as regular dvd's one question? does this problem occur only with this one dvd or is it others as well?
