I now have a new Samsung Blueray-DVD player along with a new LG 55" UHD TV. Here is the problem I'm having.
No matter how I fool around with the Aspect ratio settings on the DVD player I can't get it to go to Full Screen View when playing a DVD. Every time I load up a new movie DVD disc I get the video in the "Letterbox" format. Both the TV and the DVD player have aspect ratio settings but I'm having no luck getting a full screen view with the DVD's. If I'm watching regular TV which is a Dish feed, I can control the aspect ratio with the Dish remote. The user manuals that come with the DVD, the TV & the Dish, give no clue on setup or how Aspect Ratio works.
I'm not against progress or technology, but sometimes all this electronic crap really gets to me. I use to watch TV by turning the TV on. Now I have four stinking remote controls to screw with to turn the TV on. People look at me as if I just left the cave because all I have is a simple cell phone that can only make or answer a phone call. Everybody tell me I should get a Smart Phone. When I ask them Why- they have no answer. Thanks for any help you can give me.
