I have a sanya 28" tv.. it's a widescreen.. but whenever I play a 
widescreen movie.. in mplayer for example.. I still get black bands at 
the top and bottom...

I think I've figured out the problem.. but not sure how to fix it.. I 
have a Radeon 9200SE thats running at 800x600

Am I right in thinking that I need to change the resolution so that it's 
16:9 "shaped"? if so.. how'd I do it.. I only know about the regular 
resolutions.. 640,800,1024 etc etc.. and which resolution would I go for?

Thanks again

Craig (confused)
