Say goodbye to all you problems with widescreen DVDs. Get someone to manufacture a DVD player for you that will automatically detect black bars and zoom the image until they are gone. Get rid of most of the menu options since your customers probably find them confusing. Sell this player for $99.99 or perhaps you could give them away with the purchase of 10 DVDs. Put a sign on it that says 'We guarantee no black bars! I guarantee they will sell like hotcakes and your widescreen DVD sales will skyrocket. What are you waiting for?
