Only the PS/3 is the issue, right?

This is only an issue between your player and your screen, from all I
have read here. If their configurations don't match, you won't get a
full-screen display. This has nothing to do with any "settings" or
metadata in the video file.

Here are the PS/3 settings for upscaling, if you TV doesn't manage:

I can't find any settings for the video player, but it should have some
as well, or one of the above might apply?
