I think I read something about HTF starting a petition or something to prevent this very very disturbing trend. It was because of DVD that I bought a 16:9 screen and a CRT front projection system. The recently increasing levels of 4:3 dvds in rental outlets is very disturbing simply because of the fact you start to get used to something nice which was 16:9 and then it is taken away from you. I have had to watch more 4:3 DVDs in the last 2 months than I have in the 4 years. Hopefully something can be done before this 4:3 nonsense gets out of control.
