    i just found an old review from sound and vision last year....it said that this 4-3 set cant fully display enhanced 16by 9 dvds..it cuts off 25 percent of the image...is this real bad,,,enough of a problem to avoid buying the set..i mainly watch satellite anyway but we do have a bunch of dvds....thanks...

    Is it HD capable? If it is, it probably only squeezes a 1080i signal. Make sure the new Mits or another brand HD-STB is compatible with it. Yes you probably won't be able to display anamorphic DVDs on it with out setting the DVD player to letterbox on 4x3 sets and losing 33% of the resolution.
