    I have a 27" Apex TV (the $200 one), and one of the cheap $50 Apex DVD Players (only to hold me over for 27 more days, then I will return it and get a nicer player, Anyway, I have a view DVDs that say widescreen on them (The Lost World Collectors Edition for example.) When I play them they are not letterboxed, and I am almost sure I don't have a widescreen TV. Anybody know whats up? Thanks

    Access your player's setup menu and look for a setting that allows you to choose between "16:9" and "4:3" playback. Your player is probably set for 16:9, which is why it's filling your 4:3 screen. (And everyone probably looks exceptionally tall and thin.) Set the player for 4:3, and you're good to go.
