Netflix letterbox on dongle

by Borrealis / November 6, 2012 5:02 AM PST


I recently got my hands on a samsung allshare dongle, and it has worked as expected. I mainly use it to watch movier on my 32" HDTV, from my Galaxy III. On Netflix it used to show a fullscreen 16:9 ratio, however, after upgrading the S3 to 4.1.1 (from 4.0.?) it no longer shows a widescreen picture, but a letterbox format. Can't find any setting or such anywhere, any recommendations?

I bought a new tv, a Smart-tv, with netflix integrated, kinda solved it Happy The dongle upgraded itself, aswell as the allshare app, haven't tried it afterwards, though.
