What do you mean "to full screen"? Can you give us more details about your problem?

Can you please take a photo of your TV screen to confirm to us what you are seeing?

And please run one or more of your 'problem' files through an application called MediaInfo (set to text mode). And post what it reports, IN FULL as a text (.txt) file?

Sufficed to say, most 'big budget' movies are shot using an aspect ratio 2.35:1. Which means when they are displayed on a 16:9 (1.77:1) television you will see black bars above and below the image!

Also, can you please confirm which 'VidOn SDK' version, 'VidOn XBMC' version and 'Video Media Center' (VMC) version do you currently have installed on your VidOn Box. And when you find out the above, can you please visit 'My Settings' via your 'Profile' and add this information within your 'Devices & Software' area for future reference?

I know what you mean, most movies now are 16:9, so you will see the black bar on the top and button of your screen,, if you want the picture to full fill your screen, then the picture will be stretched.

He is talking about options that are not found on vidon xbmc. Normal xbmc version show when clicking the video options: -

Deinterlace method
Video scalling method
Crop black bars
View mode ( zoom , normal ,stretch 4:3 , custom , original size , stretch 16:9 ,wide zoom )
Zoom amount
Vertical shift
Pixel ratio
Post processing
Brightness
Contrast
None linear stretch
Stereoscopi mode of video
Stereoscopi mode inverted

Most of these are missing on vidon , i wonder why as well ...

Out of interest... Are these video playback options available for Android set-top box builds of XBMC. If so, which ones?

Also, can you please confirm which 'VidOn SDK' version, 'VidOn XBMC' version and 'Video Media Center' (VMC) version do you currently have installed on your VidOn Box.

I talked about this problem with the developers this morning, they said that's because the hardware/firmware doesn't support some of the options which were mentioned in the above posts, so we disabled these options. But not all of them are not supported, we will try the best to enable some options in the future versions.
