hello, i just purchased my first widescreen TV. i'm no expert, but do understand letterboxing, anamorphic widescreen, etc... my question is about the black bars on the sides and top and bottom of my screen when i'm watching an anamorphic DVD. i'll use "revenge of the sith" as an example. i have the TV set to the normal viewing mode, the DVD player set to 16x9, and the film looks like a non-anamorphic DVD, with bars on the sides and tops. only after i use the zoom function on the TV, do the black bars on the sides go away. why is this? would hooking up an HDMI cable prevent this?(MY DVD player has this connection) i understand why i have the bars on the sides when watching regular 4:3 TV, but why do my DVD's have the bars on the sides as well. the TV is a sony KDF-50E2000 thanks .
