Zoom widescreen DVDs

by Bvc999 / April 5, 2011 9:43 PM PDT

Hi. Can anyone advise how to zoom a widescreen image from a source such as a DVD player to fill the entire screen on a Samsung 50" 3d plasma PS50C7000 to remove the top and bottom black bars. I want to retain the aspect ratio. The zoom function just appears to stretch the image vertically without retaining the aspect ratio, making the picture unwatchable. I cannot see any way to zoom it and keep proportion. I want to do this via the tv as my blu ray doesn't appear to zoom. Help
