Nobody yell at this guy!!!
Ok, your question then is about letterboxing to start with and there is no way I have found to adjust SMC (SAnsa Media Converter)output. Simply said if what youre watching starts with full screen, you will watch it full screen on the fuze.
The lag issue, I assume you mean how the sound falls out of synch with the video you are watching over time, I have seen a lot of discussion on the boards about it and everyone assumes its a firmware glitch. I am not convinced that it is and the reason I say that is I dont see it happen with any rhyme or reason.
I watch ‘Family Guy’ episodes, they are 21 mins long on average. Now about half will be out of synch just a little bit to where its noticable at about min 7 or 8, but the other half play just fine. I watch an episode of ‘Scrubs’, also 21 mins long and I thought I was watching badly dubbed asian television from the very beginning of the show, it was horribly out of whack.
I watched ‘The Dark Knight’ on the Fuze, all 2 1/2 hrs and it never acted up during the whole thing, it was letterboxed and very very tiny but played fine. And that movie is so good, that I was almost half way through it, totally engrossed in it, when a passerby pointed out the letterboxing, I hadnt even noticed it. But it played back beautifully.
So based on that, I dont think its the Fuze itself causing the problem, I think it the SMC causing all the headaches, it is totally inconsistant and unreliable. Half of the videos it converts dont even work. Its made to do one thing, change x parameters to xyz parameters and it can’t do it reliably.
