    I have a 36 inch Wega xbr that supports anamorphic squeeze.

    How do I get my DVD's on my xbox to support this.

    I am using the HD pack with the xbox.

    do I change the video options in the setup screen to

    4:3?

    Letterbox?

    Widescreen?

    I'm confused!

    Go into setup and select widescreen. It plays anamorphic DVDs just fine.

    Use the "Widescreen" setting.Also,make sure that your TV is set to 16:9 if required.Not sure how the Wega's work.Make sure that you are using the correct input,on my Sony 61hs10 only video5 suppors anamorphic squeeze.

    So if I switch it to widescreen on the xbox, it will only squeeze dvd movies and not games?

    Or do I have to change between 4:3 (games) and widescreen (movies)

    Sorry to sound dumb but I just picked up the remote today at lunch and want to test it out when I get home!

    Just set it to 16x9 and your XBox will work everything out on it's own. (ie. 4x3 games play in 4x3, and widescreen games play in widescreen.) [​IMG]
