When I watch a DVD here, normally this is not an issue. Sometimes, though, the picture seems compressed horizontally or in some other way out of whack. I’m not talking about PAL or NTSC. I’m assuming this is an aspect ratio problem because it is clear, but just proportionally wrong.
From time to time, I’ve seen an option on the individual DVD’s main menu to choose an aspect ratio. However, that option is not provided on many DVDs. In that case, is there someplace else that I can go to change aspect ratio, such as the DVD player’s configuration menu, or do I just watch overly tall, squished people for two hours and better luck next time?
