Default Samsung 5000 and 4:3 frame DVDs...Stupied question.

Can the 5000 be set up to fix the aspect for 4:3 discs? Everything is streched and I hate that. Also I noticed SD discs don't look as good as they did on my HD-A1. Does it even upscale? Thanks guys.

Maybe in firmware...

The HQV Renon is the uberist upconverting chip out there. So it's your eyes or your TV.

Defining the TV that the player is driving is part of Menu/Setup/Display. There are two 4:3 choices. Didn't you do this when you installed the player?

I purchased a 5000 in December and there was no way around the 4x3 stretch issue at that time. I can't confirm newest firmware but doubt they will fix that problem.

I dont think they are going to fix this. I believe that Samsung thinks this is a "feature" not a defect. As far as I know there are other Samsung players that do this as well.

I just change the aspect ratio on my TV to 4:3 or normal setting
instead of the default of full or wide screen
no problems, I do this also for non wide screen TV shows

Huh? HDMI is a type of connection and Monster is a brand name. Monster makes HDMI cables. No matter what the brand, you definitely want to be using HDMI cables for the best quality, although I would never waste my money on Monster HDMI cables.
