I play them on my Roku, apple TV or laptop connected to the HDTV. No transcoding required.
When playing mkv files over USB on my BD-D5300 the aspect ratio is distorted when trying to fill the screen with "Mode 1" and "Mode 2". When I use "Original", the aspect ratio is correct but the picture size is tiny.
Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this without transcoding? For the record, I am using the latest firmware and have tried different settings on both my TV and Blu Ray player. Also, the mkv files play perfectly, full size, and without distortion, on a friend's BD-C6500. So I'm a little surprised/disappointed that the next generation of products would have this problem.
Thanks to anyone who can help...
