DVD issues - Xbox one

Hi guys,

Despite spending a large sum of money on the Xbox One, it won't play DVDs properly and I am using the 360 alongside it. There seems to be no option at all to change the aspect ratio and every DVD I put in displays in 4:3, not giving me the option to change. I don't particularly want to watch TV box sets with black borders around them and it seems farcical that Microsoft would develop a machine which destroys all of the good features of the 360 DVD player. On the 360 you can simply click on the display options bar and change the picture size - on the xbox one it doesn't exist or am I missing something really obvious?

Am I going crazy here? Any fixes or confirmations that Microsoft put out an awful DVD player would be welcomed.

I'm getting the same problem with DVD aspect ratio, although only on home made DVDs recorded on a toshiba DVD recorder. Bought DVDs play in the correct aspect ratio. I cannot find anything to change the aspect ratio anywhere, unlike the Xbox 360. Contacted Microsoft through chat, and got a link to display settings for......xbox360! Not a lot of help there. The fact that no ones replied to you since for 2 weeks implies that Microsoft are either ignoring this or know there's a problem but can't/won't fix it. Poor service.
