    not really, if he doesnt want borders just tell him to use the picture zoom functions to enlarge the picture to fill up the tv screen

    No, if you're talking about black borders above and below the image, this is just 16:9 aspect ratio which is considered the best because you get to see all of the footage and not the centre square of an image.

    widescreen tvs are 16:9 but some dvds, hd or not come in 2.35:1 which still leave borders top and bottom of screen. or something like that

    It shouldn't be a problem. It's generally considered the best way to view a movie.

    A boarder is a person who lives at a house and pays rent, or someone who attacks a ship a boards it.

    You mean borders (no "a")

    The tv will not get rid of the borders. It will show all content in the aspect ratio that it is being broadcasted in or has been encoded in. Lots of films have a ratio of 2.35:1 so they will have borders as this is wider than widescreen. Blu-rays and HD DVD will usually always be in the correct aspect ratio of what the film was recorded. So in other words get used to having borders.

    I've often wondered why the hell sales points for tv's include 16:9 aspect ration, not much of an advantage really lol, why cant we buy 2.35:1 tellys?

    It all comes down to the original Aspect Ration of the film usually given as three figures on the back of the dvd, such as 1.78:1 or 2.35:40 or numerous others. All in all a pain in the **** because it only makes any difference if viewed at the cinema. 16:9 is the widescreen format that generally gives full screen pictures if the original aspect is 1. something and still leaves borders when 2. something. Use the zoom options, of which there is normally more than 1 to achieve the best picture for you. 1080p or any of the other HD numbers is an indication of the amount of data shown onscreen and gives more detail to the image, it does not effect the size of the image.

    you zoom you loose quality and picture information thou, but thats ovious just stick with the borders.

    because everything other than films would give vertical borders.
