Go into your DVD player set up menu and set it do display the video as widescreen
It is set to 16:9 and commercial widescreen DVD play widescreen.
Are you ENTIRELY SURE that the settings on your LG DVD player are
correct (i.e. to output a 16:9 display)? Here`s the crucial que-
stion : IS IT CAPABLE OF RECOGNIZING AVC-encoded video burned on
a DVD ?
DVDs with AVC-HD burned on them, basically function like their
analog counterparts from the standard definition era, the VHS
cassetes. We are talking about SERIAL playback of video, no
interactivity like that we are used to, when playing back a DVD
or a Blu-ray with menus.
If your LG player is fairly old, it may not have been designed
at a time when AVC-on-a-DVD (i.e. the cheap, home-made alterna-
tive to authoring High Definition disks as opposed to Blu-ray)
was NOT thought of (and later materialized, much like the famous
3xDVDs, i.e. HD-DVD material burned on standard DVDs and designed
for playback on HD-DVD players).
