You press Home/the PS button and you can select from several video settings amongst the options. You can go for 1:1 pixel (where applicable), stretch it to fit from top to bottom while retaining aspect ratio, stretch to fill the screen fully, or (I believe) even zoom in.

Thanks. I know it was probably a real basic question but as strange as it seems I'm still on the fence with which PS1 classic title to purchase. Just want to try and ask the questions that I'm sure I'll have once I do actually buy my first game. Thanks again.

I'm playing FF7 on psp now, and just like SOTN, it tends to have some unused black space on the top and bottom of the typical 4:3 screen, allowing you to use the manual zoom function to zoom in more than you'd expect to fit the psp wide screen aspect ratio.  You'll have a little unused space on the side, but less than if you were actually blowing up a 4:3 image.

The only time I ever even notice it is when a dialog text box happens to have an edge outside that area, although I haven't seen any actual text obscured and I haven't noticed any cutoff in the maps, characters or menus.

I'd guess you can probably do something similar on many ps1 games.

Is it the same with all ps1 classic titles? Even though the psp screen is a generous size my hope would be to fill it completely if possible...rpgs sometimes are tough on small screens due to the amount of dialogue so all screen real estate is essential.

As far as I know. I didn't see any errors. The psp was plugged in during installation. How would I know if it failed?

Just updated here yesterday and no issues here, maybe it's not your PSP but router/firewall...

This might sound strange but when I first got my PSP I couldn't connect at all either (I imagine you were able to connect before the upgrade though so probably not applicable here) but for whatever reason when I logged in on my PS3 and reset the password suddenly my PSP would connect as well, purely coincidence I'm sure but weird stuff does happen.

Well, this I just don't understand at all...I just tried connecting my PSP to my wireless network and most times I connect it fails. I say most times because about every 7th scan for available networks my network shows up on the list at 100% signal strength. Then right after that scan where the psp sees it it then fails to connect. So it only shows up very sporadically and fails to connect. This was NOT the problem at all with update 6.37. Actually, when I updated last night the update downloaded successfully (while the psp was plugged in...low battery strength but still plugged in). The psp actually prompted me before the actually install that the battery was low. So I put the unit to sleep and let it finishing charging to full strength...then installed today. The system reads that 6.38 is the active running system, umds play fine and everything else seems normal other than not being able to connect to the network and I even rebooted the router a couple times. The laptop can even connect to it no problem. So it seems like the update to me. Any suggestions anyone?

I'm really bummed because I was going to the psn store last night to download my first title (Vagrant Story) and now this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure about the connection problem, but even if it doesn't get resolved right away you can still get games from psn.

Try using media go on pc (http://us.playstation.com/psn/mediago/), and from there you can drop the games to your psp via the usb cable much faster than trying to download them directly.  It also lets you keep all your games on hand, so you don't have to redownload if you delete or swap them around.

I have a similar problem, which is strange because I never had the problem when I first connected my PSP to my wireless network. But recently it refuses to connect, even though I am connected to the network. I try to update but it says it won't connect. It's really strange.
