    At the moment ive got my PS2 linked up to a 4:3 TV. But all my DVDs are in 16.9 format. I was wondering how do i keep the aspect ratio (so it becomes a letterbox) because at the moment, its just filling a whole 16:9 picture in a 4:3 screen meaning the picture is dsitorted.

    I pressed menu and tried to change the format to 4:3 but cant change it. I was wondering is this because i aint got the offical Sony Controller with the updated drivers or because the PS2 DVD aint capable of keeping aspect ratio?

    Any helps would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Boro22,

    Some of the settings can't be altered whilst the DVD is playing, or even paused. The way round it is to start the DVD, then stop it. You should then be able to access the aspect ration options, plus some others.

    Hope this helps :).

    Regards,

    Dave.
