    Default Help 4:3 To 16:9

    Does anyone know if theres a way to just add the bars to the side of a 4x3 movie to make it 16x9
    i dont want to disturb the quality of video just want to add the bars if possible ?



    The reason for this almost silly question is when my dvd player is set to progressive scan i lose the ability to change screen modes(ie zoom, 16x9, 4x3 with side bars, 4x3 stretched to 16x9 and so on ) with my 16X9 tv. And the player is stretching 4x3 to 16x9 and that sucks. this is only when player is set to progressive playback

    Are you talking about a DVD or some other format?

    I don't believe that can be readily accomplished - without going through several conversions and, therefore, reduction of visual quality.

    I wouldn't imagine that turning off progressive scan would yield unacceptable viewing...

    I have absolutely no idea what you mean by "the resolution on back of player"...

    So, at the risk of angering you, I'll ask only one more time:

    Don't you have the ability of simply turning off progressive scan playback?
