I finally got my 51f500A today. I hooked it all up but something seems odd with the aspect ratio's. I put in "Finding Nemo" which is enhanced for widescreen tv's. The default setting is for 4:3 signals so there were large grey bars on the side and then black bars on the top. the different aspect ratios that I have on the tv are 4:3 standard, 4:3 expanded which zooms the 4:3 signal to fit the screen. but then severly distorts the corners. it seems that this is normal though because the little picture in the manual shows distorted circles in the corners. the next is 4:3 zoom1&2 these zoom the picture. then there is 16:9 standard and zoom. I figured to watch nemo which is in 16x9 I should put it in 16x9 standard. When I do that. all it does is stretch the picture horizontally. The black bars are still there and everything is fat. so when i do 4:3 zoom1, the manual indicates that that is what should be used to view the movie without bars or loss of picture. But, that is not the case. I loose a bit more than an inch each way horizontally and vertically. This doesn't seem right. It seems that the Tv doesn't know how to deal with a 16:9 signal. so it just stretches and zooms. shouldn't I be able to give the tv a 16x9 signal and not worry about. It's almost as if 4:3 is the tv's native aspect ration and it doesn't know what to do with a 16x9 signal. I hope i've made some sense, and hopefully someone can help me or explain to my why i am loosing picture on a dvd that is enhanced for my widescreen tv!
