A friend of mine is using a PS2 to play DVD's, but can't seem to configure the thing to put out the "enhanced" or "anamorphic" 16:9 format, which his widescreen TV will display correctly. He can, of course, get the letterboxed output, at lower picture quality. I'm not at all familiar with the PS2; can anyone tell me how to set it up right?
OK, but can you give me a little more detail? My friend found his way to a menu that presented options that looked like "4:3 Full 16:9". But whichever one he selected, he got a 16:9 picture letterboxed within a 4:3 frame. Was this the right menu? Did he have to click on something special after selecting the item in order to make the selection take hold?
