Does anyone know how to watch UV movies without the black bars? I am using a Dell U3415W 21:9 monitor. I did not see any commands in the menu that would allow me to zoom in.

I've tried VuDu, Flixster, and CinemaNow. The only one that supports it is Flixster, but it doesn't stream in HD for some reason.

Any ideas?

UV uses a middleware called Awesomium which is a client-server wrapper around Chrome, probably a version with extensive crypto re-writes (yes, even the plugin uses it). As such, I believe the only way to do letterbox properly on a 21:9 screen or projector is by using Ctrl + Mouse wheel up to scale up. That's about it. But that might stretch the horizontal beyond the limits.

I tried Flixster once, and it was in HD.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll give it a shot and see what happens.

Not sure why my HD movies are only streaming in SD on flixster. Both stream and download are only in SD while the movie is showing as an HD movie and will stream in HD through VuDu.
