The case says that this movie is 1.85:1 and from what I have read in my search, it seems that nobody has noticed otherwise. However, when I came home the other night, my wife was watching it and it filled the frame(no mattes).

I would swear that I watched something else recently that was 1.85 and I could still see a tiny matte at the top and bottom of the screen.

Has anyone else noticed this? Does a 1.85 picture fill up the frame on this TV? Is there that much overscan? It's no biggie to me, just curious...


edit: oh! and yes I did cycle through the zoom settings to make sure we were in "full" and not any of the zoom modes.

How about any 16x9 set? Do you usually see the bars on 1.85 movies?

Most 1.85:1 movies seem to fill a 1.78:1 screen with no mattes.

yeah your overscan might have eaten up the bars, and maybe the movie isn't exactly 1:85 but they said that cause people are familiar with that instead of saying somethign like 1:80 I dont know im guessing

I just watched Gremlins last night and same thing: no bars.

Perhaps the other movie I watched (can't remember which one Posted Image ) was a little bit more than 1:85, or maybe it was because it was not anamorphic and the "zoom" on my TV displays a little differently.

Come to think of it, it might have been TOP GUN which is definitely not "enhanced for 16x9" TV's.
