By "non-Wega" do you mean "non-Sony," or are you looking for a Sony that isn't a Wega?
If it is the former, I believe there are many TVs that perform the squeeze trick, including Samsung.
And Loewe, if you're looking for a TV that's generally accepted as being better than Sony. More expensive, though.
To answer your question, there are plenty of non-Wega, and non-Sony TV's that will do the squeeze trick.
there are many pure 16:9 tv's out there, is that what you're after?
try toshiba, loewe opta, philips to name a few.
I think he is looking for ones that have a 16x9 "mode", not ones you have to squeeze through the service menu. I far as I know non-Wega Sony's do not have this option. I know Samsung sets have it. I didn't think Toshiba or JVC or Panasonic, or any others have a "mode" without going the service menu route. I am assuming he is also talking about NON-HDTV ready sets.
thanks for the replies....are there any specific model numbers?
Both TV's feature: Vertical Compression Scanning (H/V Letterbox) displays 16:9 content with correct geometry on a 4:3 TV.
