    I've had my G5 and my Dell 24" now since May and just stumbled onto this over the weekend.

    Normally wide screen movies play default with the top and bottom blacked out following industry resolution standards. When you play a full screen movie the sides are blacked out.

    I JUST found out that you can adjust the Video Zoom in either format to fill the screen.

    You also have sound EQ options in the same menu.

    Simply double click your upper left screen to show the DVD player menu
    go to Window and scroll down to

    Video Zoom
    Video Color
    Audio Equaliser

    You can also lock the aspect ratio

    Now I can finally watch my wide screen movies widescreen/ full screen and it's awesome!

    The EQ is also helpful if you want to bring out the dialogue boosting the voice frequencies.

    I know, it's an awesome feature.

    For the voices, do you have Dolby dynamic range compression in DVD Preferences on or off?

    The screen will drop down to small when you double click the menu, but you can just reset it in the Video menu to Half, Normal or Max once you've changed your other preferences.

    Move right over to "Window" (to right of "Controls" and "Go")

    and you'll see
    Close View
    Minimize
    Zoom

    Hide controller
    Navigator

    Viewer
    Bookmark
    Video clips

    Video Zoom
    Video Color
    Audio Equalizer


    You'll see.
