Thanks!
I can't game on a 17 inch screen. It simply can't hold my attention. I moved to all 21" screens and would have a hard time enjoying games on anything smaller. Congrats on the upgrade and I think you'll be happily rewarded. 17" simply isn't large enough IMO.

if the movie is 16:9 then trying to watch it in any other aspect ratio will stretch it, and ruin the proportions. dont do it. thats the way the movie was filmed and intended to be watched. when you watch a fullscreen movie 99% of the time its a 16:9 movie that has just been cropped to fit a 4:3 screen, so you are in fact missing some of the movie if it has been "formatted to fit your screen". and no, there isnt a codec that can "fix this", i would suggest getting used to those black bars- unless you get a widescreen TV that is 16:9 or get fullscreen movies. if the bars are really bothering you maybe the black level isnt set right so the bars are grey and noticable? if so just turn down the brightness until the blacks are truly black and you dont notice them as much.

I use PowerDVD and just have it crop (cropping will not make the video look stretched if you do it right) a little bit of the sides off of 16x9 movies and fits perfectly on a 16x10 screen. You hardly miss anything, just a couple pixels off the side.
