I doubt anyone has had this problem, but I'll post it here anyway. Whenever I watch videos, they don't cover the whole screen even in full screen mode. Here's a picture:
Anyone know of a fix?

You're right: that doesn't look like mine. I just checked clicking the current Springsteen and Jones offerings at the Marketplace. I get horizontal bars only -top & bottom- with "We take care of our own", and "chasing Pirates". Generally, this is what I get. Otherwise, it's vertical bars on the sides -but, never both; I suppose the differences depend on how the videos were shot or converted. Also, the lower & bottom bars on mine are about half the size of the ones on your sample: my lower bar, for instance, is at the lower-right controls, not above them -before those controls disappear, that is. I don't get a truly full screen, but the wide formats are the same I get on other sites' "full-screen" videos: thin top & bottom bars only.
So, I'd guess it's a resolution or other setting on yours. Enjoy experimenting and good luck getting a better pano of that nice shot.

It doesn't do this when I use Windows Media Player with the same file. I was thinking it might be my video card driver, but then again I don't know why it works like it should in WMP and not in Zune.

I thought you were asking about Zune videos. I use Zune to view Zune videos only; and IE, WMC, WMP, WL Photo Gallery, and ocassionally vlc, for all else. I don't even know how to view a video "file" with Zune, and I have wmv unchecked in Zune.

Yeah, I got the video from somewhere else. Zune looks in my video folder and the videos show up in Zune. That way I can sync them to my phone or Zune and it keeps my place in the video and it syncs up with Zune on the desktop. So I can watch a video on the computer then sync my Zune and continue watching on my Zune where I left off from. It's great.
