Strange video zoom / movie continuity issues
« on: September 12, 2009, 09:09:37 am »
I'm experiencing a strange problem with about 5% of my dvds. Regardless of whether I watch directly from the disc or rip and watch from the hd, these movies have a black border around them. I can select zoom 135% and the video is then normal, but it would be nice if it happened automatically. Even stranger, some, but not all, of the same dvds do not play scenes in chronological order; the movie skips from point to point like a Tarantino flick. Any ideas why this might occur?

Very strange - I've placed my dvd collection on the hdd (~100 discs) and have never seen that as an issue...

Unless you're talking about playing a standard 4:3 movie on a 16:9 screen?

I have never seen the wrong order thing but I do remember changing the zoom to 135% on a couple of movies to get them to display corrently

Did you find a way to make the zoom permanent for those movies or do you have to select the 135% every time?

Do the DVDs that cause this strange behavior have anything in common?
