I recently purchased a Toshiba SD-5700 DVD player and I am extremely happy with my purchase. However, just this past week I rented Titanic and had problems geting the picture to fill my Toshia 50HX81 widescreen format. I tried all options with the DVD player, as well as the Toshiba format choices, but could not find any way to have this picture fill my screen. Could this have been the DVD itself or am I missing something with either the player or TV? Any insight would be helpful.

OK - so now I know why I wasn't getting a full screen picture. When purchasing new DVD's for home, are the DVD's clearly marked as to which are 16x9 enhanced? I thought if one said letterbox, that would be the version to purchase, but apparently that's not the case. What should I be looking for?

Theaterwide 2 mode on your Tosh TV is best for non-anamorphic DVDs. It's a compromise of course, but it's not bad.

Isn't SD5700 supposed to have built-in scaling for non-16x9 enhanced disks like Panny RP-91 does? If that's the case you can have the TV in Full mode for most DVD viewing.
