DVD Letterbox problem

I have a Samsung DVD player with a problem I don’t like.

The Letterbox feature allows the whole movie to be seen by blocking out the top and bottom of the TV screen.

This prevents the need to pan and scan.

But, the black bands on the top and bottom of the screen aren’t
thick enough, so the image is squeezed too thin.

Any help as to re-size the Letterbox?

I posted a reply, but it doesn’t seem to have shown up…

Your player doesn’t have a problem. You need to configure it to display in letterbox format instead of widescreen. You should be able to figure this out fairly quickly looking at the setup menus.

Just found the owners manual and figured out how to reconfigure
the format to letterbox.

Thanx for the pointer.
