My Toshiba PVR/DVDR offers a choice of recording in 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios, but I'm assuming that I would have no use for the 16:9 as I do not receive any HDTV signals. I do record widescreen movies from Turner Classic Movies, Fox Movie Channel and IFC, but I'm assuming that these are broadcast in a 4:3 letterbox ratio rather than true 16:9. Is this a correct assumption, or should I record in 16:9 and use the enhanced 16:9 mode on my Sony to watch widescreen recordings? The few movies I've recorded from TCM I've recorded using the 4:3 setting, and I'm assuming that the 16:9 setting would distort the signal. Please verify that this assumption is correct. Also, when would the 16:9 setting on the DVD recorder be the correct one to use? I could try it and see what happens, but TCM doesn't repeat their movies often enough to make re-recording a viable option (although a movie would likely be repeated some future month). Thanks in advance for any explanations. Steve K.
