Hello, Please bare with me, as these are probably stupid questions to many of you. I picked up a new Panasonic PT-53WX53. This is my fist time posting, and I was curious if I could get any advice on tuning my new HDTV. More specifically, this is my 1st widescreen TV and I'm trying to understand how to get the DVD's viewing area to occupy my entire screen. It seems no matter what I do, there are black boxes above and below the screen. How can I correct this? All my DVDs are widescreen formatted. Does anyone have this HDTV or a similar model , and could help me understand what I am (or not) doing wrong? This model has 4 aspect modes (4:3, ZOOM, FULL, and JUST). None of which seem to fill up the entire screen. I have seen widescreen TVs that will stretch the screen north-to-south so that there is no "letter-box". Is this b/c I need a better DVD player? I'm not sure if my TV can do this or not, but the zoom function seems to be the best I can get as of yet, ...stillit makes the image jaggedy. Right now, it's hooked up to an inexpensive DVD player through plain ole' RCA jacks (not component, s video, or DVI). I'm sorry for the bother, but any advice would be appreciated. I got the TV yesterday, and all I've done is hook up the DVD player into Video Input 1, and did a 9 pt. convergence.
