Hello all, I just purchased a 16 X 9 widescreen TV, a Toshiba 34". The first movie I watched on my Panasonic RP-56 was The Glass house, the widescreen side. The screen was filled right to the max, no complaints. The second was Gladiator, now, there were small black bars on the top and bottom, but I changed the Picture mode on the TV to accomidate that. The third movie was Lake Placid. Now no-matter what picture size I chose, there were VERY noticable black bars on the top and bottom of the picture, almost like viewing an anamorphic DVD on a 4:3 set. Everything to my knowledge is set-up correctly. The DVD player is set to 16/9 mode, using component cables. Is there something I am missing? Because if most DVD's are going to do this I'll just return tis one and get a 4:3 set. Thanks!
