    I have a Wega t.v. that automatically detects a 16:9 signal and I just got my decoder box. The box has a menu that lets you change the screen size to 16:9, 4:3, or 4:3 stretch. What should I set this to? Also, no matter what I set it to, the picture is not full screen. Is this normal? Thanks very much for any feedback.

    You should set your HDTV box to 16X9 and then set your WEGA to 16X9 squeeze mode. However this will not fill your screen because your wega is not 16X9. But that is how it should be setup.
    What HDTV box do you have?

    I got it through TWC. It's a Motorola HDTV box. My t.v. is a Sony Wega XBR 450 32 inch. Thanks for the help.
