    I didn't know whether to put this in the software section or hardware section but here goes. I have a Toshiba 50H81 and a Pioneer 434 DVD player. The Stargate box says it is a 1.85:1 "matted" widescreen format. While watching the movie it does not look like that is the right aspect ratio, the black bars look way too big. The dvd player is set properly to 16:9 tv setting and I tried 3 different choices on the tv (Full,Normal, and Theaterwide 1). Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

    The box is wrong. It's 2.35:1 non-anamorphic widescreen. There is nothing wrong with your player. If the image looks fine, then it's fine.

    Thanks for the reply Matt. It ticks me off that they made it that way. Maybe I shouldn't get anymore DVD's that say "matted" widescreen. I know this is an older DVD, but is there anymore DVD's that are like this that you can think of?
