The Zoom feature is available in Media Center when you watch video in widescreen format. For example, Zoom is available when you watch a DVD or when you watch an ATSC signal that is broadcast in widescreen format.
If you select the second mode of zoom, Media Center crops the sides and stretches the widescreen image vertically and horizontally to a 4:3 ratio. If you select the third mode of zoom, Media Center stretches the image only vertically to fill the screen. If you select the first mode of zoom, the regular widescreen display mode is used.
