I have ripped a few of my SD-DVDs (using DVDFab) to ISO. I am using windows media player after mounting with daemon tools lite and outputting to a 720p TV. My problem is that media player seems to stretching my video out causing the letterbox is larger than normal on both the top and bottom. I am wonder if this is because I am using fullscreen mode. Is there a specific codec I should be using? Any ideas guys?

Thx

Attention WMC skin users: a very minor optical bug got introduced that leads to some navigation buttons being permanently visible when playing TV. We will exchange the download version on SourceForge as soon as possible.
