DVD discs when played on this player (SAMSUNG BD-P1400) do not fill the full screen. ... not talking about the traditional black bars that appear on the top and on the bottom of widescreen movies, but an entire black frame around the movie, making the movie play inside a window....Apparently this problem is being caused by the lack of a function to manually set the 4:3 mode to be used. There is an exact same problem with Sony BDP-S300, but this can be solved because Sony has an option called “4:3 Video Out” that after changed from “normal” to “full” solves our issue. Unfortunately it couldn’t be solved on this unit from Samsung. If a new unit cannot play our DVD collection the way it supposed to be, then the unit pretty much worthless............andrew/clare/.../../.. please clarify/confirm.
