press the right arrow to highlight the "video" icon and press enter.

press the down arrow to highlight "dvd image" and press enter.

use the up arrow and down arrow to toggle between "modified" and "original" and press enter to confirm your selection.

The "Original" option will allow the anamorphic image to pass without adding black bars above or below the picture. An unmodified anamorphic picture will appear to be vertically stretched (i.e., everything will look tall and skinny).

The "Modified" option will add bars above and below the anamorphic picture, so that it does not look appear stretched.
