    I understand how the 16:9 enhanced mode works on my tv, but I have a question regarding hdtv's.

    If you have a 4:3 hdtv with the 16:9 enhanced mode, will that mode work with hdtv programming or just dvd's?

    I'm curious if you lose any picture info if you have a 4:3 versus 16:9 screen.

    Also will you lose picture info if you have a 16:9 screen and watch 4:3 hdtv material?

    Thanks

    Kyle

    If your TV does the auto adjust for enhanced, you will actually have to turn it off to get 4:3 with enhanced material. Sorry, I don't have and HDTV tuner, so I don't know if it works for OTA HD programs.
