If the format of the tv is 9:16 and the format of the movie is 9:more_than_16 it won't fit exactly. You either have black bars below and above or the sides cut off.
How frustating to have the wrong TV for this movie. The positive side: it could even be worse if you had a 4:3 TV. Better have a look at the format next time you spend money for a movie.
I have a problem. i have downloaded an .AVI file what (possibly free) software do i need to get the viewing file to its maximum for showing on the tv screen other than a letter box view? i have a 42 inch tv and the magnify button cuts off the sides of the file when applied. its frustrating. would converting to dvd with something like dvdflick or nero 9 essentials help me?
