    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

    Andy
