I don't zoom on any movie, no matter if it's 2:40, 2:35, 1:85, etc. I'd much rather watch the movie as the director wished it to be watched than zoom and crop out important imagery.
If you need help with adjusting your overscan, check out this great thread posted by Michaelangelo.
wait a min..... the whole point I was getting at viewing full screen is "to show" stretched-look on video when set to Zoom mode playing DVD movies that are widescreen.. I posted the pic to show him that's one of the ways to get rid of the black bars.. I didn't post that pic to show off how good my pic is, trust me, it's "not" meant to look good.. that's was the whole point
I was hinting him take a little hit on PQ and view the full screen during the breakin period, which was the main objective... to show "full screen".
another thing, maybe you are not having any problems viewing full screen because you have "very different" setup than mine. You're on Consumer Plasma with a dedicated DVD player. Maybe you have some features that came with the DVD player is allowing you view at nicely balanced full screen playing widescreen movies.. i don't know. Mine is strictly on PC, no exceptions.
I did post my messages in the thread you have linked... Waiting for their reply..
Thanks for the linkage though.
If you do have the secret on how to get my system to view at full screen without sacrificing the PQ, picture balance, and losing the viewing area(edges of the screen), then please do let me know. Even though I don't have any problems with the way I view movies(the pic I posted as an example), I certainly don't mind having a nicely proportioned full screen video on my setup.
however, if it is something has to do with "adjusting" V-POS/SIZE and H-POS/SIZE then i don't know if i wanna do that.... because some of other movies I run are in 16:9 Mastered in HD. It would look way off, wouldn't it?
It seems what would happen is where I keep having to change the V-POS/SIZE and H-POS/SIZE everytime when I play different ratio type movies, once again, all this is on PC
, not an external DVD player..
another thing I should mention... the "zoom" mode on my TH PHD7UY panel doesn't crop out any pictures. It bascially condenses entire video content to fit in my screen, basically stretch the picture vertically to remove the black bar. I've closely observed this from movie to movies and this claim holds true..
