Was wondering if anyone uses the Theatrewide 3 option? The other modes all have purposes - can't figure this one out.

I use TW3 on some of my 1:66 to 1 aspect ratio DVD's and it looks good to me.

TW3 makes 2.35 films fill the screen better. takes away the bars ... and takes away the extraneous information on the sides that no one needs to see anyway. Posted Image

I only use Theaterwide 3 when there are subtitles that get cropped on non-anamorphic movies displayed with the normal Theaterwide 2 zoom.

Homer: So, Mr. Malloy, it seems that the cat has been caught by the very person who was trying to catch him.
Skinner: How ironic.

I use it all the time for cable.

Seems the best compromise for general TV Viewing. I shift up just enought to see my digital cable box's status when looking for something else to watch.
