Ight I jus got the drive. Got my 3 free movies plus the other 5 free I got on the way.

I popped in King Kong and Holy fuck it looks HELLA FLY. But there's sumthin that still urkin me. I still se 2 black bars on the screen!

Would I have to get a cable or sum shit so I can see it in fullscreen without having to ZOOM in? is it the whole 1080i / 1080p thing? I think mah TV only supports 1080i although it has said 1080p after changing it in the dashboard.

Anybody else get these bars? I just though that HD DVD would've cancelld those freakin things and show the picture in full.

If any of yawl own this thing...Let us know what to expect or becareful with.

Or any updates.

is it in full screen or wide screen?

That Might Be The Problem and i think the HD DVD only supports up to 1080i

I read sum article that says if the Director shoots in a certain aspect - that's the aspect your gonna see on your screen. You can crop it by ZOOM but you'll loose parts of the picture.

Unless the director shot @ 1:85 you won't get the full screec expierence. That goes for any HD format.

Anyway another thing that's got me frustrated about this shit beyond the screen is that the movie NEVER LEAVES OFF FROM WHERE I STOPPED IT!

So far those are the only 2 CONS of this HD shit. Hopefully they'll fix the 2nd 1ne through an update - but I think Im stuck with the aspect ratio situation..... wackness.

Pretty much decided now.

HTSA to support Blu-ray exclusively

The Home Theater Specialist of America (HTSA), which represents 62 home theater installers/retailers, generating $500M in sales, recently reported that they will now support Blu-ray as their primary high definition Movie format. This move comes from an internal survey which reveals that 92% of HD players sold were Blu-ray while the remaining 8% was HD-DVD or some combo players.

President of Consumer Sales for Sony, Jay Vandenbree, went on to explain the move by HTSA, "At a time when ever-changing technology tests just how much one can know about everything, HTSA has chosen Blu-ray Disc as the format they support. I think it speaks volumes when support comes from those who specialize in home theater, and are closest to the consumer."

HTSA’s move to support Blu-ray only shows the strength that the format is gaining within the industry each day. Because the Playstation 3 supports Blu-ray, its success as a whole could mean a great future for PS3.

It does have to do with the aspect ratio. So, you cant do anything about except zoom.
