bump... I have just kind of dealt with the problem so far and not let it bother me... but, it does a bit.
I want to clarify that the aspect ratio of what's playing is not off but the size/shape/ratio of the window is. media center used to open up as widescreen so when you played something widescreen, it filled in the entire window. These days windows media center, when I open it up rather than being a widescreen shaped rectangle, it's more square(the window itself) like full screen. So when I play something widescreen, it displays the content at the correct aspect ratio but the window stays the wrong way. So, in order to it display the widescreen content properly, you have bars above and below the content. So... as I mentioned before, in order to have it take up more of my actual monitor screen, I'd have to stretch media center SO much that you could not see the top or bottom of the program. This does not work when you want to move something around.
If I simply go into FULL screen it displays fine but I often prefer to have it as a window and not full screen.
I have right clicked and messed with the zoom options during playback... I've gone into settings and made sure it's set on widescreen. I've poked around a bit and tried googling and I just haven't found the answer I'm looking for so far.
Unless I find a simple solution...... I'm thinking, is media center a free download for win 7 users? Perhaps I could simply uninstall it and reinstall it and if I'm lucky, it will go back to how it was?
Anyway... watching a show at the moment so I'm not going to mess with it now but I REALLY do want to fix this.
