    There's usually just some sort of latch/pin that keeps the tape from bumping up. Unless it's really tricky- some of them had those stubs that stuck itnto the spots on the tapes

    Depends of the tv my living room tv is like a 50" doesn't stretch but on my 65" it does I don't really mind it but black bars always annoy me

  • SacredMilkOG @ SacredMilkOG:
    You need them to play games and watch movies in their proper formats. It isn't just a nostalgia thing. It's a quality thing.

    And yeah, black bars is yuck
