Motorola DCT6400 program guide in fullscreen?

I just got my Motorola DCT6400 HD cable DVR. I've set it up for 1080i and 16x9. But when I go to the guide, there are vertical black bars on the side. Is there a way for the menu to be full screen on my widescreen TV?

I have that box to and I don't think it is possible to make it fullscreen. Why do you care is my question to you?

Well you would just think that a box geared and advertised to HD users would have a full screen guide option. It just flat out looks better than having the bars on the side. My old Samsung DTV HD receiver had a full screen menu and like I said, it just looks better.

My DTivos all have fullscreen, but I think it just stretches the squareish menu. I wonder how many do this.

I don't have the 6400 HD box since I'm still waiting for my cable co. to offer one. On the 6200 HD box I use the guide comes up as an overlay and the program can be seen behind it on the sides without bars covering it up.
