I'm about to buy a widescreen TV and would like to know what size 16:9 I need to buy to have the screen size be at least 36"diagonal when viewing 4:3 programming in natural (non-stretched) mode? I seem to remember a website that has a chart or a formula for calculating this for all size screens. Anyone remember where I can find it? Thanks,
