    Is there a way to convert a blu ray disc to widescreen without having the horizontal bars on the top and bottom when playing the disc?

    Not easily no, that involves cropping the image and i'm not sure that's something CloneBD can do. On top of that, you don't want to nor should you need to for numerous reasons

    1. Afaik lot of movies don't have them to begin with and are shot in 16:10 while most tv's are 16:9 and it's actually the TV that's "adding" them or simply because of the movies aspect ratio have nothing to show in that "area"
    2. Even if it could and you crop them away, the video will most likely NOT match your TV's image aspect ratio. Result: The TV will simply add them back in order to properly fill the TV's screen.

    And i'm probably missing a few more reasons.
