DVD Options Menu

  • Properties (For Advanced Users Only).
    • Select Audio and Video Filters
    • Adjust Video Decoder and Audio Decoder properties.
  • Expand Image. Expand Image lets you enlarge a "movie format" image to better fill the proportions of your TV screen. The numbers (1.33, 1.66, 1.85, 2.35) represent the ratio of width to height of the DVD video image. Your TV screen has a 1.33 ratio, so leaving it at that setting will often waste space at the top and bottom of the screen for films shot in a different format. Most films are shot in 1.85 format; some wide-screen movies are in 2.35 format. Choose the one that best fills your TV screen. Of course, you will not see parts of the movie that fall to the left and right edges, so if you want the full movie image, leave it at 1.33.
