    Hi!
    I've been looking at 4:3 RPTVs and I have decided that I like the Toshiba 50XH70. The picture looks great and the price is right. However, I've heard that a major drawback is the lack of an anamorphic squeeze on a DVD source. I've also heard that Toshiba will be releasing new sets this summer. I'm wondering if there is any info on these new sets out there. Will they be replacing the 50HX70 with something that puts the squeeze on DVDs? Will the price of these new sets be comparible with current prices for the HX70? How soon can we expect these sets? Anyone out there got the answers?
    Thanks!
    - Mike

    Any replacement set would be available in the Aug/Sept timeframe at the earliest. No word yet on a 16:9 mode for DVD.
