I sale TVs for a living and we always use DVDs to show off our TVs. Now of course we always use the widescreen version like the movie was intented to be watched. We get the most problems from OLD people. Almost every one of them has some dumbass comment about the widescreen. Some of my favorites are: "can you take those black bars off?" or "whats wrong with that TV?" or "How do they expect anyone to watch those DVDs??" or "Well im gonna wait a few years cause this DVD thing is so new still" Younger people generally seem to understand widescreen, for the most part. I usually try to tell them about how they are missing up to about half the picture and sometimes they almost seem to understand, until they fire back..."YEAH BUT IM ALSO MISSING THE PART WHERE THE BLACK IS TOO RIGHT???" aarrghhhhhhh!!!!!!
