I just bought a Sony Wega. I pop in an 16 x 9 dvd and turn the setings on the dvd to 16 x 9. I then turn on the 16 x 9 mode on the tv. The picture looks pretty good, but when I switch everything back to normal, it's hard to tell the diference. It brings me to these questions: Is the 16 x 9 mode overrated? Is the Comb filter really that good if the picture is that great without even having on the 16 x 9 mode? Basically what I am saying is It is difficult for me to tell the difference between pictures with or without vertical compession. Just wondering what you guys think.
