The first question is whether or not the black bars are on the top and bottom or on the side. Most BD movies are shot in a format that is still wider than 16:9. This is an aspect ratio called 2.35:1 (16:9 is 1.78:1). As a result, they shrink the movie to fit resulting in black bars. You can use Samsung?s Picture Size options to make these go away, but you end up cropping the sides of the movie.
If the black bars are on the side (and maybe also on the top of bottom), then there?s a setting somewhere in the PS3, but I?m not terribly familiar with that product.
Anyone who can tell me how i can watch my blu-ray movies on the playstation 3 in full screen mode...do i need to change settings on playstation or the sammy tv...and if so what and where do i do that......thanks
