Here's my situation: I have a 32" Loewe Calida TV (I like it most of the time, so please don't hack on me for buying it) that has an automatic 16: 9 sensor for DVD's. When I watch a 1.85:1 anamorphic disc I get no black bars from the disc; even though I should get minute black bars between the 1.85:1 film and the 1.78:1 "frame", I'm not really getting them. To be specific, I do get some black (from the disc, assumedly) below the film, but there is nothing above the film. In fact, when I checked it against 4:3 mode with individual frames, I am actually losing a little bit of the top of the film in 16: 9/squeeze mode. Does this have something to do with overscan? When I run VE and the 16: 9 test patterns I can see the safe areas and up to what seems to be the outside line of the frame. I know I'm only missing a tiny bit of picture information, and it's not like I'm a dyed-in-the-wool purist who has to see the WHOLE frame, it's just that for any scene where headroom is tight, my set makes it even tighter (lack of headroom is a major pet peeve of mine). Anyway, hope everyone can shed some light on my dilemma. I don't expect anybody to know how to fix this on the Loewe, but once I understand the issues I can at lease use the right lingo when talking to Loewe's help guys. If people with Wegas or other TV's with the squeeze have had a similar problem their stories would be very helpful. Thanks.
