    I've got a technically-challenged friend who just got this unit, and I'm wondering if it's capable of doing the squeeze from the User Menus. I'm sure that it's not automatic, and I'm not going to recommend that he go into the Service Menus, but does anybody know if this is possible?
    I'm pretty sure that my father's FV16 does have the User Menu option. If the FS17 has it, can you please give a little detail so I can help him find without humping all the way over to his place on the other side of town?

    Yes it does. It should be under the user menu...and you have to manually do it.
    If he pops the user menu up, scrolls to the right over to "video" (I think that's what it's called), then selects video, a menu will pop down. Scroll down. I believe it's the second to last setting that will say "16:9 Compression: Off". Just select it and scroll up or down to toggle it on.
    That's it.
    Hope this helps.
    By the way how does he like it? What size did he get? Does he see any brightness problems (i.e. one part of the screen is darker or lighter than the other)?
