I got the 40gb PS3. I have a 42" panasonic plasma 720p. I watch TV perfectly, play games perfectly. But, when I play dvd's or blu-ray's I get the black bars at the top and bottom. my previous dvd player played in widescreen and filled the screen. My TV has Just, H-Fill, and Full...and they all show the bars when I use the PS3. The movies are widescreen versions. Never had black bars til the PS3. It's got to be a setting somewhere, but I'm setting up everything like I think I should. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, I am using HDMI cable.
