Connect a mini to an older RGB-only HDTV

Great Hint!

I'm sure it will help many people, even if it doesn't apply directly.

One of the problems is making things simple enough so the family can use it easily. I found Matinee and DisplayConfigX very useful so far.

Has anyone figured out how to play back a movie that was encoded with black bars on the top and bottom? When I play these back the picture is just a small window in the middle of my screen, no way to make it bigger.

If you're playing the movie in DVD Player on Tiger, go to the Window menu and choose Video Zoom. Make sure that On and Lock Aspect Ratio are checked, and then drag one of the sliders to enlarge the image.

I understand that there's no way to do this in the current version of Front Row, though.
