I recently purchased a Mitsubishi DD-6030 pregressive scan DVD player to go with a new Sony Widescreen HDTV. It works fine for the most part except for one thing. The picture always chops off an inch or so on each side of the screen. It gives an apect ratio of about 2.1:1 on movies that should be 2.35:1. It also does the same thing on 1.85:1 movies, but I haven't measured what it is doing there. I can get it to the right size by zooming out once, but I do not want to have to do this every time I watch a movie. It also leaves a small amount of room on each side of the screen when i zoom out. Not a lot, but it is noticeable. Does anyone know anyway to fix this? Should I just live with it or should I return it for a more compatible DVD player? Any help would be much appreciated.
