    I have a question about the 4:3 Expanded mode on this TV. Is there a way to shrink the expanded picture vertically to make it not cut so much off of the top and bottom of the picture? I like the way the 4:3 Expanded mode looks except this one thing. If I can't change the expanded mode, is it possible that having black bars on the side most of the time could cause burn-in, or is that not a problem?

    I have that tv and it recommends limiting 4:3 view to less then 15% of the time. I personally like the 4:3 expanded mode best but do agree with you, it does it cut a bit off the top and bottom. That's why I still use normal 16:9 viewing. Just make sure you turn down the contrast and brightness and calibrate with a setup disk.
