I am new in this forum and also a new user of WD media player, with almost no experience (bought it yesterday). I tried to read all the information and use the search button, but ended up a bit more confused, so I am sorry if I will repeat questions made by others. I am having a few issues with WD, the main one being similar to what Orione67 described. My issues with WD media player are:
1 - When I try to see discs with burned .avi files (widescreen) in a regular DVD player, the player allows several different aspect ration changes which comfortably accommodate the picture to the screen. BUT - on WD, they offer only two options, normal and widescreen and I end up with two big and fat black bars on the screen. The DVD player does not erase the black bars COMPLETELY, but it does bring it closer to the 16:9 ratio without making the faces fall off the screen. I tried the zoom in option that WD offers, but it really distorts the picture :-( Any other suggestions to fix this or at least diminish the black bars to a normal size? Will this be fixed in a future firmware?
2 - Another problem with .avi files + .srt files - they are perfectly in sync in my PC, but when I play them on WD, the subtitles appear in a delay of a few seconds, very annoying :-(
I saw this was mentioned in the first post, has this been fixed in a new firmaware (and if not, do you think it will be)?
3 - I have converted a few avi + srt files into DIVX, using AVIADDXSubs - WD sometimes does not read the DIVX, but when it does, it is always without the subtitles. Why is that? I read that WD does not support DIVX, but since it read a few of my files, I thought perhaps this changed?
I thank you very much in advance!
