Hi all,

 

Model: UE32F550AKXXU

Latest firmware 2127.

 

I have a few prehistoric non-anamorphic DVDs: they are encoded with a 4:3 image which contains a 16:9 letterboxed picture.

 

As the output is 4:3 , the TV reads it as such and displays a 4:3 pillarboxed image.  I understand that this effect is called windowboxing becaue I get both the TV's pillarboxing and the original image's letterboxing.

 

20 years ago I owned a Panasonic TV that had a "Zoom" function which filled the screen with the 16:9 information within the 4:3 image.  It's hard to believe, but I can't find any such function on my Samsung TV.

 

Is anyone able to tell me please how I can get my TV to display these DVDs in full screen?

 

Many thanks.
