When I try to play Xbox on my monitor it displays in what seems to be full-screen mode, meaning there are black sidebars on the left and right sides.


Is there a way to resolve this? I have seen videos of people be able to fix this with the Xbox one s and x but I haven't seen one for the first-gen Xbox.

    A unrelated tip: You can try to re purpose the letterbox by using clamps or something to type tips and trick cheats on paper to hang – Delta Oscar Uniform Dec 12 '20 at 20:07

No. According to the Xbox support site, the Xbox One only supports 16:9 resolutions such as 2560x1440. 21:9 resolutions such as 3440x1440 are not supported.
