Sorry, newbie question, but I think I've looked in all the obvious places... I'm currently thinking very hard about getting/making an MCE machine, but am a bit put off by the "zoom" modes. I have a 16:9 TV and at the moment, when viewing 4:3 material (broadcast or DVD) it automatically switches to a "14:9" zoom - ie, the top and bottom of the picture are slightly cut off, and there are slight black bars to the left and right. This is just how I like it, but it doesn't seem MCE can do this. As I understand, the zoom options are: - 4:3 (huge black bars either side) - full zoom (cut loads off top and bottom) - full stretch (everybody looks fat) - "intelligent" stretch (stretches the edges but not the middle; still looks a bit wierd) I really don't want any of those; I know the "stretch and zoom" supposedly does a good job, but I have a thing about distorted pictures. Is there really not a "14:9" zoom available? Also (sorry!), is MCE clever enough to know it is 4:3 material and switch zoom modes appropriately (I'd be using digital (Freeview) tuners)? In other words, if you pick "zoom 2" (say) when watching 4:3 material, does it automatically go back to that zoom mode again next time you watch 4:3 material? Many thanks!
