    Here's one for you tech heads out there...

    Can a dvd which is fullscreen still be anamorphically enhanced? I know the widescreen one's normally are but was wondering....

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, kinda, but also no. The reason I give that answer is that, unfortunately, terminology is inconsistently used. So what is it that's made you ask this? If it's a description on the back of a DVD cover or something like that, I have some DVDs that say "full screen 16:9 enhanced" on the back cover - but what they really mean is that it will fill your widescreen TV (i.e. it's anamorphic widescreen).

    Yes, but I have never seen one produced, really 4:3 is 4:3

    Thanks guys, I guess the general concensus is "no" then.
