Expand movie to fit screen regardless of aspect ratio?

can this be done? just fill up the screen completely withOUT the widescreen black bars.

Cropping is bad and with widescreen TVs, stretching a little wont matter

Not possible on WDTV, some TV's can do that though.

I also asked this 2 years ago :shock: , if aspect ratio can be switched from 4:3 to widescreen on the fly, without going into settings. But it can't.
If you are mostly watching 4:3 videos, try to set this setting, it will stretch the picture horizontally to the edges.

No i mainly have widescreen movies, and the black bars are killing me....my hdtv box can expand movies, not sure if it crops though.

4:3 will play fully on widescreen tv
