    Fullscreen DVD

    big apologies if this has been covered before.

    has anyone any idea on how to get DVD's to play fullscreen in MediaEngine?
    usually, say if I'm using powerdvd or mediaplayer, I can right click and select a menu to alter the aspect ratio.
    Am I being blonde by not being able to find a aspect/fullscreen setting in ME?
    thanks
    Richard

    the video player window is set to fullscreen by default - if your video isn't showing up that way then you've likely got a program that isn't correctly reporting it's resolution and aspect ratio

    I'm basically getting a 1" letterbox band across the centre of the screen, touches both edges but not top and bottom, :-(

    Is this a homebrew dvd or video source?

    Just to clarify, I thought I'd add that M/E will not stretch the video, but it sounds like you have something else going on with your issue.
