    Greetings

    Apologies if this has been done to death already, but.... I have a Dell Inspiron with the 1680x1050 screen, and I can't get either Media Centre or WMA to display full screen when playing a DVD: There's always a considerable black border.

    Can anyone advise how to get full screen playback, or suggest an alternative player?

    Thanks

    Pete

    I have the same problem...

    I am using Imon Remote control with Windows Media Centre- so I am not sure what I do to correct... it is very annoying

    Can you give more details? I presume you realise that many DVD run letterboxed even on a 16:9 TV, and have tried the Zoom options under the Info menu?
