    Hi people,

    i really like the Front Row, i dont have a problem with it accept its not very customisable.... i want to stretch a video to reach full full screen rather than preserving the aspect ratio, i think its a waste of space on my LCD TV to have black bars at the top and bottom. anyone have any idea as to achieve this?

    :apple:for life!!!!

    That has to do with the size of your screen. I've you'd have a screen big enough it would fill it completely.

    I don't know if you have Leopard but if you have do, you can make completely fullscreen in Quicktime (first enter fullscreen than in the control bar there is a button for it.
    Don't think Frontrow has that option.

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean I have the same thing with Frontrow on my 20" iMac.
    The tv shows that I "legally":p download are close to fullscreen, but the movies that I download are a lot wider which is dumb, cuz I waste a lot of space on the screen.

    yeah what can we do? i usually use VLC media player and change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and that stretches it out. i dont mind loosing the proportion if it means not wasting space on the external monitor.... someone help?
