    Anyone using a 950 with a Z2?

    Samsung 950 connected to Z2 with HDMI to DVI. resolution set at 720p but gives 4:3 picture. I don't know why. Maybe I've got a setting wrong.
    1080i gives normal widescreen. I didn't have this problem my old 935.

    Anyone come across this??
    (p.s Gave up on trying to get 1920(MS) to work on Z2)

    Not sure if it's the same as on my 745 with DVI to Z2, but I have to set the widescreen option, and if it's a PAL title, press the 'screen' button on the top left of the remote to get the picture to expand, as it appears compressed vertically at first.

    Well I was using a sumsung 935 before and 720p was in right proportion but had to be zoomed in on the projector.
    With the 950 the picture appears to be in the 4:3 ratio and therefore cannot be zoomed in. I've set it on widescreen on the DVD players display.

    I just pressed 'screen' button to 'full' on the Z2 and the 720p picture filled the whole screen. Problem solved? so simply? maybe I was just being simple myself and not figuring this out earlier.
    But why was 1080i coming full screen and not 720p?
