I was wondering if anyone can help me? I just bought the Philips dvp642 so that I can play xvid files of UK TV shows that I have downloaded whilst living in the states. I copied six of them on to a DVD+R. When I placed the disc in the machine they started to play OK apart from one problem. I have a 16x9 plasma TV and the Xvid files are all widescreen, but when they play they are squashed vertically and do not fill the screen correctly. When I have gone through the lengthy process of converting the same xvid files to DVD format they fill the screen perfectly and are not distorted at all. Does anyone know anything about this problem and if there is a way to fix it? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
