Hi all,

So, I have an HR20/700 and I'm running Windows 7 Starter - I can listen to music and view pictures through the HR20, no problem, but it's "squeezing" my photos, to fit the 16:9 screen, presumably. Is there any way to change how the box shows the pics keeping the original aspect ratio of the photo?

I've noticed this for quite some time. I don't view pictures very often, but when I do, they're always squeezed horizontally (images appear taller and skinnier). I've tried various video output settings, 720 vs 1080, native on vs off, and nothing seems to fix it.

Edit: I'm currently using Windows 7 Ultimate, but I also saw it back when I was still on Vista.
