    Default Technical DVD Issue!

    I've noticed of late that when I play a DVD, or heck even watch something on my set-top box, if I zoom out I see that even if it is in widescreen, it cuts off a little bit of the picture on the sides!
    Is there a way to get rid of that? Because either it's my DVD player or that's how everybody's is.
    I'm talking, a tiny bit but I wish I could see it all!

    To make more sense of this if you're confused, I put in a movie and play it and maybe a name in the credits is just BARELY fitting onto the screen. Now this is already preserved in its proper widescreen setting so it's not Pan Scan that does it (I know all about that).
    But when I zoom out of a shot like that I notice that there is plenty of room between the name and the edge of the widescreen letterbox.

    Does anybody else get that? Is it normal for regular TV's?
