    Dunno about your dvd player, but your widescreen Tv should have various picture modes on it, like a super zoom or wide-stretch or smart that will make the 4:3 picture fill the screen.

    Oh yeah, you appear to have My Little Pony: The Movie in your DVD collection, any reason for this heinous crime?:devil:

    yeah my tv has got all that zoom and wide effect stuff on it. thanks for the help.
    my excuse is a 15 month old little girl who apparently likes the my little pony movie. this is ofcourse on good authority from her mother who i think bought it for herself instead of our infant.

    its only in my list to make up the numbers
    ;)

    As iamtheone says if you have a W/S TV you will have no trouble.
    My mate borrowed my DVD player to show his mother a DVD and hers was a 4:3 so had to go ito the settings to view it so the characters where not tall and thin (when they wasn’t).
