Viewing 2.35:1 movies on Samsung UN40MU630D
I couldn't find anything about this exact problem, so if anyone knows of a thread or threads I missed, I'd appreciate a pointer.
When I watch a movie that was released in the original theatrical format of 2.35:1 ratio on DVD, the Samsung UN40MU630D it does not display properly. It has black bars on the top, bottom, sides and has a very small picture. This TV has the Samsung Smart Remote which does not have a button on it for zooming. I have messed around with the DVD player on it's output and the only options are 16:9 and 4:3, neither provide a good picture. I'm wondering if there's something in the TV menu that's buried somewhere that addresses this.
Usually most remotes have a zoom feature but this Samsung Smart Remote does not have such a thing and I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue on their Samsung TV and what did you do to get a decent picture? Thanks.
