Have had my Archos 5 for ages and have just used it to watch downloaded AVI's and I've noticed that when watching in "Format = Orginal" mode some movies play full screen and others are in letterbox format with dark bands at top and bottom.

Now of course I can change the format to full screen but obviously lose bits at the end of the picture

I have some DVD's that I want to convert but need to know what settings are required to get the resulting output as a full screen .avi, or does the format of the original define how the transcoded file will look.

Still a bit of a newbie when it comes to creating media!, any help greatly appreciated !

Even if you could transcode letterboxed/widescreen files to fill the entire screen without cutting info off the ends, the results would appear like crap because everything would be stretched unnaturally thin and tall.
