I recently purchased a JVC S500BK to go along with my new HDTV. I really love the JVC S500BK except for one annoying problem, if the DVD is a non-anamorphic DVD but is not flagged as such, the DVD player plays it full frame (4:3). If you zoom once, it will in effect zoom out the black bars, but the player then has a zoom icon displayed on the screen allowing you to move up/down/left/right. I cannot seem to get this icon to disappear! It doesn't disappear after a certain amount of time, and pressing all sorts of buttons on the remote has no effect. Turning off on-screen display doesnt remove it either. If anyone has sucessfully removed this icon, please let me know! This player does virtually everything I want (VCD, SVCD, DVD-R, Progressive scan) but the zoom icon is its one drawback. Thanks to anyone who can provide help!
