    I asked about this in another thread, but I didn't get the information I was looking for. 1)Does moving from S-video to component cable for an interlaced DVD player on the XBR450 make sense? 2) How is a 4:3 DVD (e.g. IMAX movies, music viideos, etc...) displayed when using the component inputs on the XBR450? Doesn't the component input lock the set at 16:9?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Chris,
    To the best of my knowledge the tv does not lock into 16/9 mode on the component inputs unless the disc being played is anamorphic. Since a 4/3 format disc like the Imax movies is not anamorphic, it should play the same from the component inputs as from S-video.

    OK. I thought I heard somewhere that component locked in 16:9, but I couldn't find anything in the manual about it.
