    Video App on Metro Playblack


    Hey guys,

    Just wondering, when you playback on the Metro Video app, is there a way to get the bands on top and bottom of the screen to be black instead of the silver/white-ish it appears. Really hard on the eyes, especially in darkened room and I cant seem to get it to go black!

    Thanks

    I have the same problem with white letterbox in the windows player app and netflix.
    The Netflix problem is in the metro app and desktop IE. No problem in desktop IE playing live TV from time warner cable with silverlight. VLC of course is always ok.
