Basic dvd advice - what is anamorphic


Standard Member
I'm still trying to get up to speed with all this and would like some very basic advise please.

1) what is meant by anamorphic wide screen

2) When I play Lord of the rings (anamorphic widescreen) on my dvd (pioneer dcs303) and my philips 32 pw9617 I still get the letter box effect.
Is this correct. I was expecting the film to fill the whole screen

Thanks for all the advice given so far it is much appreciated




Very enlightining
