Is there a fix for the split screen on HDTV problem? I just tried the game and it only uses a portion of the screen, the rest is a black bar. I read switching to a lower resolution was the only fix at the time but did anyone figure anything else out?
Switching to a lower resolution does "fix" the black bar issue, however, if you are playing at 1080p or so, lowering the resolution wouldn't technically help you much.
I played that whole game split screen, but I did sit a bit closer to my TV and eventually, it just felt like a smaller single screen.
To directly answer your question. No, I don't think there is a way to get rid of that little black space in those corners of your screen, hell, I can't even verify that putting your system at 480p would get rid of it.
Just note that lowering the resolution in order to see more is counter-intuitive, as you may really see less with the lower resolution, you will just see more of that less defined picture.

" No option to change this. Modern Warfare 2 uses this method. It's really jarring at first, but my buddy and I got used to it rather quickly. "Yup. Modern Warfare 2 does totally do it. Doesn't World at War have it too?
I kinda wish you could put a bit of map or something in that black area though, might as well use it I say.
