I am super satisfied with the picture on this TV. It is my first HDTV so I am still getting used to the bars on the side and top depending on the resolution. What I have found untenable is when I am watching a widescreen movie through HDMI on my upconvert DVD player. I was watching Vantage Point (a new and horrible movie). There was the letterbox in the DVD as well as letterbox on my TV. This resulted in a narrow rectangle of viewing screen. Seriously, 50% of the screen was letterboxed . I tried using the zoom on my DVD player but then I lost a good portion of the screen and couldn't read subtitles or text on the periphery. Does anyone have a solution for watching a widescreen movie so it's not a small rectangle? Thanks, JOe K.
