Hey everyone, I am new to this forum and I tried searching the forums but could not find an answer, so please forgive me if this has already been discussed. I also tried going to EASports website, which is totally unhelpful.
I finally got component cables for my Wii and hooked it up to my HDTV, I made all the proper settings to 480p, and 16:9 aspect ratio. Every game I play on the wii looks great and takes up the entire screen except for Madden 07. It does not take up the entire screen, it has 2 black bars running up and down the left and right sides of the screen. The black bars are thin, it is not the usual black bars that appear when watching a tv show that is in 4:3. I tried going into the in game visual set up, and it is set at 16:9 which I assume is the correct setting, since it cannot be changed within the game. Is the game supposed to be displayed like this?
I mean it still plays great, and looks great too, it just bugs me about not taking up 100% of my screen.
If anyone has any ideas or can point in the right direction on figuring out how to fix this issue, it would be most appreciated.
Thank you for your time!
Here is the final response I recieved from EA tech support on 12/15/06 regarding this issue:
Thank you for contacting EASPORTS Customer Support.
Unfortunately, this was how the game was designed. In researching your issue, we also have the thin bars on our HDTV here at our location. We were unable to find settings that would fix the issue however, we were unsuccessful. I do apologize for any inconveniences.
Thank you for contacting EASPORTS Customer Support!
