Vertigo poor quality on my screen

    Hello!

    I am using a Sharp Aquos 37" and an Oppo DVD player.

    When I popped in "Vertigo" (restored edition) it didn't come close to
    filling the screen on any side so I clicked the "zoom" button on the
    remote several times until I got full screen. But at this point the
    image was highly pixelated and hardly watchable. So I "unzoomed" back
    to where I started and watched the smaller but sharper picture. Out of
    hundreds of movies this has only happened a few times that I can
    recall.

    My question: Is the problem my equipment, my settings, or "Vertigo"?

    Thanks in advance.

    The library copy says 1996 on the box so it may be old.

    I will check out the newer edition.


    It is good to know what "anamorphic" means. I was never sure. I guess
    it means, among other things, "fill a wide screen TV without
    pixelating."

    Thanks much!
