I used the search thing, but couldn't find the answers. I have a few questions. Whenever I watch a DVD on the tv I have in my livingroom, the picture seems to be stretched. A movie with a 1.85 aspect ratio seems to be streched to a fullscreen, and a movie with a 2.35 aspect ratio seems to be streched to a 1.85 aspect ratio. BUT, when I watch these DVDs on my bedroom tv, everything is normal! Why is this? I ASSUME it's because these DVDs are anamorphic, how can I fix it so the picture on my livingroom tv appears normal? My other question is what does "open matte" mean? I read this all the time, but never can findout what it means.
