    BDP5100/12 FW1.57 - Aspect Ratio for mkv avi files

    Hi,



    when I play mkv or avi files from USB they show only the correct aspect ratio when the files are coded in 16:9 (1,78:1) ratio

    If the files are coded in cinema format 2,35:1 or TV format 4:3 the player converts the output to 16:9 so that the diplay (is set to 16:9) will not show up and bottom black bars for cinema format 2,35:1 or right and left black bars for TV format 4:3.
    And of course the picture is horizontal compressed for cinema format 2,35:1 and horizontal elongated for TV format 4:3.

    Is there a setting for FW 1.57 that will remain the correct aspect ratio for formats different from 16:9?

    If I look these files on my Windows 7 computer Windows Media Player will show them with the correct aspect ratio on my computer dispay and on my Sony TV display (HDMI).

    If no such settig is availible: @Philips support, please implement it in the next FW release.... Thank you.

    Regards,

    frogger

    Hi frogger, what are the aspect ratio settings in the HDMI VIDEO menu? Because this is the only way you can modify the picture format of the video output…

    I never tried, and also 21:9 is an option available only when connected to a 21:9 TV… but for the 4:3 there should be no problem…

    Bye
