Well, I've got a JVC XV-N44 player and Panasonic 53 HDTV. I've only noticed this on older movies, ie: Star Trek: Generations. When you place my DVD player on 16x9 Auto, some older DVD movies are still stretched(movies reaches both sides, but has concerderable space left on top and bottom, almost like a regular TV viewing a 16x9 movie). When you place the player on 16x9 Normal, the movie becomes the correct 16x9 proportion, but the whole thing shrinks down and doesn't fill the screen(space on top/bottom and both sides). What is the deal with this?
