    Have a Denon 900 dvd player and mits. widescreen projection tv. I played a new DVD "saving private ryan" special widescreen edition and there were no black bars. Is it playing full screen? or is this really widescreen that fill the screen?

    Thanks

    Since the film has a 1.85:1 aspect ratio and since your 1.78:1 TV overscans, the image fills the entire screen. You'll see black bars on wider films (2.35:1, etc.).
