Not quite sure how to describe this, but here goes. Just got a DV Samsung TXL3276. When I select wide screen mode, I can see where it decreases the size of the picture by about 2 inches top and bottom. When I play a widescreen dvd (2:35:1) in normal picture mode, it is approximately 12 inches tall. However, when I play a wide screen dvd in wide screen mode, it is shrunk down by more than an additional 2 inches as compared to the standard tv mode at 9 1/2inches! Can this be normal??? I would think it would be equivalent in size to what the movie looks like on standard mode, just w/o the scanned black bars at top and bottom? Anyone have any ideas on what settings in service menu might need adjusted? I found an option in the "Others" section that was labeled "H 16:9 Parabola"....currently set at -19. Am I barking up the right tree? The color is also off, but that will be another post in the not so distant future once my Avia disk gets here.
