I have read a thread on here about double black bars and never really got a clear understanding from it so I am asking the question myself to see if anyone can help. I have a Sony32HS500 and when watching a movie such as Lord of the Rings, Matrix and etc, I get really thick black bars on the screen. From what I understand this IS NOT a double squeeze like the last person who asked this question thought. The TV performs the 16x9 enhancement and that is causing it. Is there ANYWAY to get them to go back to being thinner? On the HS500 I can't turn off 16x9 enhancement. I only have the option to turn it ON or on AUTO. IT really makes the 32 inch TV in more small! The picture is absolutely splendid but small. I have tried to change the DVD player's settings and I have tried all combinations but with no success. I have Pioneer DVD player and an XboX and it does it with both. ANY HELP?
