    it's in anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1) and I'm getting half the subtitles chopped off on my standard 4:3 TV, what (if anything) can I do?

    Is your DVD player set to 4:3 in its options menu?

    Tried it on 4:3 letterbox, Pan and scan and widescreen. Every setting lops the subtitles off. Tried different cables/routing too. Playing it through my PC now (to the telly) in PL2 but it isn't the same!

    Weird! If I remember rightly, I think it placed the subtitles below the film, in the bottom black bar. Maybe that's why :confused:

    I remember when I stuck Taxi 1 in to watch. As it was non-anamorphic, I zoomed up the image and then sat there watching the movie. At first I thought the dialogue was rather simple, then after about 10 minutes, I realised that I was only getting the first line of the subtitles! The 2nd and 3rd lines were disappearing off the screen. So I started the movie again, but this time didn't zoom it up quite as much :D

    Yup they're stuck in the black bar, but me no have widescreen! This is a proper pain in the ass, I saw a nice widescreen at 200 (factory recon) yesterday but I spent all my cash upgrading the rest of my system after xmas.

    It's certainly a gay man in the army then (Major Bummer) :D

    You'd think that the DVD player would adjust the positioning of the subtitles if it's set to 4:3. I guess it depends on how they've been encoded.

    More incentive for you to get that widescreen when you can afford it anyway :)
