    While viewing a DVD, borders appear at the top and bottom of the TV. Are borders dependant on my TV and/or DVD set-up or linked to the actual DVD played ?

    It depends what format the film was made in.Most modern dvds are filmed in widescreen so you get the bars on your scren .Some tvs can stretch the image to compensate.

    OK.
    A wide screen movie on a 4;3 tv will have black bars at the top and bottom.
    A wide screen movie on a 16;9 tv will have black bars on a 2:35:1 movie although not as thick and no black bars on a 1:85:1 movie.
    Like spocktra says it depends on what you are watching and what you are watching it on :thumbsup:
