    I have the dead zone region 2 disc. It says widescreen on the box at 1:85.1 . It only displays as 4:3 on my tv! The image also seems stretched. Do I have a faulty disc?

    I have tried all the aspect setting on my Sony player and nothing works. Has this been reported?

    The disc might have really bad flagging.I heard the same complaint in a review of the disc.

    The R2 DVD is not encoded for anamorphic downconversion. You will need a 4:3 set that does vertical compression or a 16:9 set to view it properly.

    ok. does this mean that the disc was done cheaply? as none of my other 250 are like this! I have a 8 year old standard tv. so this means that I'll never be able to see it properly?
