    when playing from a HCPC (any DVD player) into the DVI input of my Pio 43MXE1.
    Now I know the screen doesn't have square pixels but this is a bit much!
    I'm typing away in windows right now and at least the screen is fully used.
    With widescreen DVDs only half the hight of the screen is used.
    My only screen settings are dot to dot and 4:3, the latter of which puts a prefectly scaled image of the movie in the centre of the screen but only using half the area.
    How do I fill the screen (perhaps at the expense of proper aspect ratio or some of the image)?

    My Component input allows a lot more screen options to fill the screen.

    fwiw I created a new resolution in Theater Tek which fills the screen. Probably not "proper" but nocks spots of any HDMI fed screen I've ever seen
