rawr a pox on people who use 4:3 :disagree:
You loose about 45 percent of the picture using Pan and Scan and the image is also re-shot and blown-up to fill the screen ie it is grainy, unfocused, re-directed junk.
Letterbox shows more picture, in fact the entire picture, no matter the screen size or shape han Pan and Scan ever will.
Other than using the features of your TV/monitor or DVD player or in the case of a PC your video card's under/overscan settings you mean.
Perhaps purchasing Pan and Scan versions instead of Letterbox?
Better question why watch a DVD on such a poor display media in the first place? You would be far better off using VHS.
I just don't understand people sometimes.
Yes yes off topic.
4:3 format should be outlawed.
