    No suitable picture format for widescreen movie when I watch videos from USB!

    I just bought a 32PFL3517H/12 philips televison, and I just tried to play some movie from USB drive , first I tred a normal 16:9 movie, it was OK, but when I tried a widescreen movie (21:9) size, the picture was not correct! I have only two choice if i pushed the aspect ratio button: 1. very small pictures on the middle, 2. filled the screen horizontally, whereas black bars above an below would be the proper way to movie. (I want to see the movies in original format, not zoomed in verticaly way).
    But if I watch just TV channels I can change the aspect ratio.. (14:9, 16:9, automatic.. etc..) I only have this issue when I watch videos from USB pendrive..

    Could you help me to solve this issue?
    Thanks you

    Hi,

    can you please analyse the video with the tool "mediainfo" (mediainfo.sourceforge.net). In that tool, change the output to "text mode" and post the outcome.

    Hi,

    you can try one thing:
    - download www.xmedia-recode.de
    - "convert" the video again into a AVI file - BUT - make a stream copy (NO conversion) of audio and video

    => with this method, the "file header" is written again

    Often this helps...

    I found the same issue in this topic also... !
    MCCM:
    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...o-auto-setting

    "A similar problem exists when playing .avi files from Philips MediaManager.
    When the file is in 16:9 the picture looks OK.
    However, when the file has aspect ratio 4:3, the picture is stretched in width and looks distorted. No black bars on the left and on the right.
    Pressing the screen format button on the remote toggles between large and (very) small picture.
    Only the miniscule picture has the correct aspect ratio.
    Toggling to the full screen mode stretches the picture incorrectly.
    There is no way to get the picture in full height with the correct aspect ratio of 4:3

    I trust these issues will be resolved in future firmwares!

    Mark Vos "

    I tried trust in Philips brand... but no idea why..
