My problem is this: I own a VIZIO SV420XVT1A HDTV and a Sony BDP-BX1 Blu Ray Player. The Blu Ray player is hooked to the TV directly through HDMI. When watching widescreen movies and hdtv broadcasts, I have no issues. However, when I try to watch a full screen blu ray movie such as the wizard of oz or snow white, which are 1:33 aspect ratio (full frame), I am not allowed the option to stretch the image to full screen to eliminate the bars to the left and right of the movie. I am only allowed to "zoom". When watching television, i am given zoom, standard, panoramic, and wide. I should be able to have the same options with the movies too right? Wrong. I have tried just about every technical solution with both the player and tv with no results. If anyone can help me, i would appreciate it.
My brother's Samsung HDTV switches to such modes at the press of a button. I am fearing that it is the model of my tv which does not allow a "stretch" of movies, but only zoom. PLEASE HELP!
