I backup my widescreen DVDs using the resolution 640x352. 95% of the backups then play fine in full screen mode. That is, on a widesreen TV they fill up the screen nicely and on a 5x3 TV they fill up the screen width wise with black bars on top. Exactly what you’d expect, right?
The problem is that on 5% of my backups they only play is a small image centered on the TV. So a widescreen backup played on a widescreen TV has a black frame all the way around the image making the image much smaller than it should be. The original DVD plays fine taking up the entire TV. I’ve tried almost all the resolutions, but nothing seems to make a difference.
Does anyone have any clues?
