    I think the only 32" with the "squeeze" on the remote is a JVC. But it is also about $800. Sony's also do the "squeeze" automatically, but they are around $900. I think he is going to need to up his budget a little. There was talk about a Curtis Manthis (K-Mart) that did it, but haven't heard anything about that set in a few months. Samsung used to make one, non-flat screen, but they discontinued it. Do a search and see what you come up with.

    Not going to happen at $500 and at 32 inches.

    Don't let the others discourage you. I've got this TV here and it has component inputs and does the squeeze from the remote. At $328 it is an absolute steal.

    Holy crap, the elusive Samsung. [​IMG] I thought these were all but extinct. Haven't seen one for a long time. Of course if you don't have a store around you it does you little good.

    K-Mart sold a Curtis-Mathes brand TV that had the "squeeze" for about $500. I think it was a 32"; no idea about the remote. Your options for 32" TV with 16:9 mode for
