    not impressed with samsung bd1400

    ill upgrade the firmware this afternoon, will try the b r disk after that. i am not a fan of technology when it it gets in my way. im not a big fan of sony/bmg anyway because of the root kit/copy protection technology that they placed on CD's.

    Configuring Toshiba A2 HDDVD player

    <Scratches head> I could swear I answered the wide screen question. Yes it is a wide screen DVD. And it is displayed as a 4x3 picture the black side bars on both sides of the 4x3 picture, and has black bars above and below the image within the 4x3 picture.

    Configuring Toshiba A2 HDDVD player

    Not at all, there are bars on either side of the 4x3 picture. For some reason its not "stretching". Its stretching fine with my Directv HR21, also connected using an hdmi cable, all sd programing stretches to 16x9 so I know its not an HDMI issue
