media play on Samsung (C7000)


Standard Member
Hi ,

I'm trying to play a media file on the samsung C7000, the problem is on the pc the mpg is in 16:9 and plays fine on the pc but the media player seems to squash it into 4:3 but the picture size function in the samsung TV will not work in media play mode (i.e. it wont let me change the ratio on the TV). I've been through all the settings onthe tv but can't figure out if it is possible to play it in the correct ratio.

Has anyone else come across this problem or know the soloution?

when you are playing the file, have you tried the tools button?

I cant remeber the exact setting (im not at home at the mo) but there is a picture format option, defaults on mode 1, try mode 2, thats what i do when i get the issue.

Once the format is set, i dont think to need to change it again unless you disconnect the HDD or usb your playing from.
