Upconvert DVD player problems

So I recently discovered that my Samsung Surround Sound Upconvert DVD player takes 4:3 aspect ratio dvd’s (mostly television) and stretches them to widescreen on my TV. Now when I watch the same DVD on my PS3 its in its original aspect ratio. I have no idea about upconversion DVD players, it was just the best surround sound I could get for my money. Here is what I have http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=9208443

Maybe I’m an idiot and I’m missing something in the settings but I thought I checked pretty thoroughly. Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and what I can do to remedy it. It drives me nuts watching a stretched image.


too bad the HD DVD players are discontinued, if u can somehow get a hold of it used for cheap
get it, cuz the upconverting chip in there is really top tier lol

There has to be a menu setting that you’re missing.

Normally, I say that the format would have to be changed from your TV menu - but since your PS3 is playing fine…it’s either going to be something with the DVD player or a combination of your DVD player and TV
