    Hi Everyone, I am in need of some advise please. I am trying to play a couple of games on my mac mini 2010 and when they play full screen I only get 4:3 display and I cant get it to stretch to widescreen. I have tried all resolutions but the game still goes to 4:3 when I select fullscreen.
    I have my Mini connected to a 40" tv via HDMI.

    Any help would really be appreciated

    is 4:3 the proper aspect ratio for the game? if so, the game is telling your system to display it at 4:3. you'd need a feature in the monitor itself to stretch it to fill the screen if that's what you prefer.

    if the game's proper aspect ratio is widescreen, but it's squishing the pic to fit inside a 4:3 frame, then there is an issue somewhere (either between the game and os, or the os and the display). need more info to troubleshoot.
