I just bought a Toshiba 34HD82 widescreen TV and a Toshiba SD-4800 DVD player. I set the DVD player to 16:9 output and I set the TV to "Natural" aspect ratio (displays input in its own size/ratio). I'm using component connections and the DVD player is set to progressive. When I play a widescreen DVD the TV stays in 4:3 mode, using big gray stripes down the left and right sides. The picture is letterboxed within the window box. I have to use one the TV's zoom modes ("Theaterwide") to fill the screen. I suspect that, by zooming in on a small picture, I am losing much of the resolution available on the DVD. Shouldn't the TV show full widescreen for a 16:9 DVD when the aspect ratio of the TV is set to Natural? That's what the manual seems to say. I'm confused. Thanks very much in advance for your advice.
