I know that because HDTVs have a different format than old 4:3 TVs that some images cant be watched without either using black bars or stretching the image to fill the screen but look distorted. But images made for a 16:9 format should fill the screen with no distortion.
Now when I watch an anamorphic DVD in standard format, it should fill the screen with no distortion. However I have the big letterbox bars and the image appears squished down. I assumed the black bars weren?t going away because I don?t have HD hookups for my DVD player, so the TV is getting a normal signal. But when I went to Best Buy to get the HDMI hookups or whatever the guy tells me its all about DVD format and blah blah, so I just leave without buying anything.
Do I Need different hookups? Perhaps a better DVD player? How do I get rid of those letterboxes? BTW, I have the same problem with television shows that are made for the 16:9 format. I can?t get them to fit the screen correctly. I figured that is because I only have normal cable.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
